Received 16 shares as a spin-off. It formed a strange graph which tessellated overtime. I purchased 84 more shares 2 months ago to bring my total to 100.

When Furiex was split off from PPDI, I received a few shares so started to look into it. It's a small pharmaceutical located in North Carolina's Research Triangle Park near Raleigh. I saw that it was developing a new drug for IBS which I've suffered from for 35 years. There are 28 million people in the US alone with this type of IBS and we've tried everything to date. This company is located in the back yard of the largest IBS medical center in the nation (and maybe worldwide) located at the UNC Medical Center (been there, too. Impressive). What they've been doing during the last 15 or more years is revolutionizing IBS treatment worldwide with the development of a criteria of what constitutes IBS and looking into every type of treatment possible. So when I found that FURX was developing a promising new drug, I watched. Eluxadoline has been so successful in trials that it has been fast tracked by the FDA and FURX should be putting in a drug application this summer. I will be first in line when it comes out. While a lot of people don't know much about IBS it can really put a hitch in your giddyap, let me tell you. The UNC Medical Center is very excited about this drug and is undoubtedly been involved in research studies. And yes, I certainly do have stock in this company and just bought more. Hope this helps some of you decide.

Thanks for the new word.

Tessellate:

A pattern made of identical shapes:
* the shapes must fit together without any gaps
* the shapes should not overlap

Definition of TESSELLATED

: having a checkered appearance

First Known Use of TESSELLATED

Not sure though that there is anything identical about the graph, however, but it is interesting.
I would have thought it was electrifying like Tesla. :)

Thanks!
