Ona few occasions, that i have the time to enjoy watching a few movies every day, one of which ""Bend it Like Beckham! I have wanted to see since it first come out. Enjoyed it wery nuch and having not gone to a cinema for thirty years just catching up is a whole lot of fun, and it takes my mind away from thinking incessantly and just chilling out. With sleeping 16 hours a day, a couple of films, human contact and this BB I never get bored, just enjoying what I can do, and never thinking what I can"t.
As i have said a few times now it provokes much speculation and it is easier to create a conspiracy theory than it is to see the likely cause. and THD I was quite thrilled to see the trades on Friday about 43k bought, 4 trades and 4 buys, no panic seeling which makes me believe the vast majority of us are just waiting. For all the thinking in the world, I just can"t put my finger on anything that explains the situation easily, however much I think, and conclude that in just a few moments of time we will get the news we want. Not for me to suggest buying or selling or even holding, not qualified to do so, but i can nly give a very honest opinion as to how I feel. Everybody posting must feel the same , a sense of reality in every post, frustration stems from excitement so is not the worst emotion to feel, I just can£t wait to see more excitement return as here are so many issues to fuel that.
So in fear of repetition I will cut this post short, open to other opinions which make me think out of my box, but i haven" t felt that for a few weeks now. How I would just love to us cruise through to the mid teens in the next few weeks, I think it is very possible , I just love the way we have grown internally, the experiemce at the helm running through the company. Me and chester have made a few references to luck recently and i am very midful of that, and just hope with luck is with us to to progress even in fyrther. Night guys, let us allow ourselves to dream there are enugh reasons too for sure. Take care.
Well that is what I think, although logic is pretty difficult to apply to a Bio such as ours at times.
It is not logical that we haven"t been partnered or bought by a Big Pharma, we have seen so many times that the data we have on the face of it seems more compelling than others in multi million deals. But we did have a deal just 3 years ago, and who knows what other discussions have taken place or continue to take place. It might well be a reason for what seems to be a news blockade again from Scancells side, what with MOD1 trial getting ever nearer.
I am not overly concerned with news on SCIB1 trial, yes it has been delayed from the very beginning, but to say news is overdue from 1st July is going some. Of course it takes more than just a few weeks to recruit suitable patients and arrange dosing regimes. Well we have the financial statements on 20th Auguest, this coming Tuesday, and I am sure that will include, possibly seperately updates on where we stand ATM in time. I look forward to it. For me it has taught me...(again) that what we hope for, takes a little bit longer than what we like to imagine. Next week heralds the eigth week since we were told patients were being recruited, maybe now we are just ready to announe the news we wait for, it would coincide nicely with the financials RNS for sure.
Having a truly wonderful weekend, the lady most important to my life is back from Hungary, I have really struggled without her these last six months, and losing my brother just six weeks ago to the same cancer I had, the last of my family line, has meade me realise how important somebodies love is, I feel truly lucky and so much stronger for her presence, it is truly amazing how life works out for all of us, and timing is not a coincidence. Hoping with all my heart that timing proves to be the case for Scancell, there are many with much higher holdings than me, but if we ever just reach 50p a share I know that £130k will make a very big difference to me, and I look forward to Scancells pipeline making a very big difference to the patients who need our treatments so much. So the coming weeks are so important for us, lets all hope we get the kind of news that will really make a difference for us all.
TF, ..............."".You say A-Z have been led to Ichor/TriGrid by Scancell's SCIB1 trials but somehow I doubt that Scancell was a factor at all""..........................Well I think it is rather fanciful that Scancell wasn"t a factor at all, simple, different opinion. Why would you suggest that previous data with the use of Ichors Delivery System would be ignored completely?
Afternoon guys, TF I don"t think that was the point being made at all, and as for................
"""Although electroporation works - not all Patients fancy it and it must be a significant expense ?"""
Well, what do you mean not all patients fancy it?? I promise you, those patients who have survived in excess of five years, hopefully with decent health, would accept that rather than dying. It wasn"t much fun having radiation, sabre radiation, cryo ablation, microwave ablation or huge doses of steroid treatment either, and that is not to mention the recovery times from major surgery, if you ever recover or treatment from chemotherapy!!!! So I miss your point completely.
What we were discussing, which I am pleased ratty enlarged on is the validation Scancell have given to Ichors Tri Grid System, which has led AZ to them in what could be a tremendous deal for Ichor. As a result of us proving up electrocorporation, it would have brought our data to close scrutiny with them. How else would they know how well electrocorporation works?
Meant to add, but I couldn"t find the words before, but Scancell by the data collected in the SCIB1 mono trial have led to big Pharma using Ichors Delivery System. Which means our data has been seriously analised for AZ and others to want to use the delivery system themselves. Still cant find the right words. , lol. Night
Interesting article, dated back in mid March. Doesn"t mention exclusive use of the Tri Grid System although AZ are paying annual fees. Only reason I mention that is for a while I have mentioned whether we have an issue with Ichor after changing to a new delivery system, and I"ve also considered whether Ichor are selling their shares down. But that is purely speculation and it doesn"t make much sense either. Trouble is the FDA delay doesn"t make much sense either.
So Lindy teaches Astra Zeneca a trick or two, by using Ichor first, she really is more than just our most valuable asset.
Decent enough day today, would have taken that at the open, mind I haven"t checked up on NEX yet, but there is another 100k on the bid side at 7.16, has been all day. Have a good weekend all.
Well it is the 16th August today, and it seems as if the weeks are flying away like never before, as another week draws to a close and in another week where we hoped we could return to the momentum that drove us back to the high 9s, it looks as though we have done nothing to have achieved that. The frustration being we can be sure we have done nothing, but obviously can"t relay by RNS what progress we have made over a few items due for news.
give answers to price sensitive information. I have no idea as to whether he looks at the BBs, but he has always thanked me for telling him the temperature and feelings on certain matters, that can certainly do no harm.
Despite all this a very interesting day for me, you might remember, I had a carer for the last five years who unfortunately had to return to Hungary six months ago. Well she has decided to come back, to be with me, and i have just learnt she is sorting out her papers at this moment. She is a bit older than me, but I call her my angel, and believe that for all she has done for me and her love, so very happy she is back, it is funny how even in a few months we learn to realise what we need, who we need, and if there was ever a time for being together, that time is now. So if there was ever a time for Scancell to soar away into the £££s then this is such a time, lol, and i jest not.
In the meantime, I would be so happy to see 50p again, feet on the ground and that in itself constitutes a 700% rise, perhaps my first target should just be my average of 14/15p, lol. So lets hope for a good end to the week, lets not forget this could well be a great buying opportunity too, as in all sincerity I thimk news is not very far away at all. Have a good un.
Evening Knowlesi, well as you can imagine I don"t agree with all of that at all. You say.............."" do your own research and remember everyone here is just a faceless poster, "". DYOR I do agree with, but as for faceless posters, no, that is your choice.
From day one I was interested in people as I have always been in life and business, I met up to about 15/20 Is here in person, still communicate with many and 3/4 of those have really changed my life, whether it be friendship, or actions they have taken with have really helped my life in recent years. It has been a great experience and the support they have all given me over the last few years, fighting my cancer has been a wondrous experience. So I disagree with you on that, if people choose to remain faceless then OK, but probably the three closest relationships I am proud to have wher people that I met at AGMs and really am looking forward to meeting just a few more that I do speak at the AGM this year. Just a couple were not so great, there motives were very clear to me, and we just went our seperate ways, that is normal.
I wasn"t under the impression we had madcap ideas of the BOD doing so many other things, but we know they are close to SCIB1 trial beginning, getting very close to MOD1 trial, and by actions taken some time ago awaiting the SCIB2 Trial sponsored by CRUK. That is just only a few items that i will mention now, so don"t get your point on that at all.
Don"t agree with your views about this BOD either, the reasons have been well documented and when you chose not to post during our rise from 3.50/9.50 in very short time those thoughts were not shared by any posters here. The addition of Vulpes has only strengthened that, we have doubled the staff, 12 of whom have PhDs and have brought in serious employess one from Adaptaminnu which will improve everything about us with their previous experience. Not so easy nuilding a team as many of us can comment on, but we are moving in the right diretion on all the promises JC made.
Agree entirely about the risk element here, as i said more companies fail than suceed and what we are mindful of is the risk/reward available to us. Those buying in up to 5p recently have enjbling of their initial investment, not bad for a company with so many alleged faults and we Vulpes on boar during this critical time which whatever way you see it is only a big positive.
The tone of your post is far more mellow, it doesn"t need to be so confrontational to people who have given so much to this BB. i welcome that as many will. Lets see in the passage of time who is right but only that can be used as a guide to our progress.
I often said to you we only differ on the journey not the destination, then you extended the journey to suit. Lets hope we can all benefit in time, the risk reward is huge and we have a really good chance in the Ommuno oncology space, lets hope that continues to be the case. Take care,
Chester, lol, I remember that post very well, it made me smile amongst all the mayhem that day.
As I said I just can"t really imagine that anything has gone wrong since those statements about actively looking for suitable patients, it has only been 7 weeks on, and I do think I/we were being rather hopeful how soon that process would take. However, could we not just get an update on how it is going?? Sounds reasonable but if Scancell had to justify every thing that affects the share price and sentiment by RNS then it would be a bit farcitical too, and somewhat pandering to the needs of a BB and to traders.
So sure you are right, just a matter of waiting for the news that matters, and I just wonder when it comes how many?or few PIs will be able to get back in around the price they have sold?? That applies not to just trial news too, and as I have said a few times I don"t think we have ever been better positioned for a series of good news, so I will just hold. Catch yer tomorrow guys, I find it hard to imagine anything but good news awaits us following Vulpes decision to take their position in Scancell, that is tangible and somewhat is far more important than any speculation we can come up with.
Ah over on NEX on 1323 odd at 7.23. Well done, it is funny all your crumbs size buys add up to just about the same as my every 9 months little splurges in the end.
I thought i had reached 220k but it is actually 214,098, so you must be getting close again. I so wanted to buy between 4/5p but i made that promise to myself that enough is enough, and I have kept to it. Seems so weird the price we both paid to get in here, and the SP now, think we have done really well to get such a holding. It must work out about £70 a week since i started, and fromt he moment I bought in i have never even bought a lottery ticket, nor spent time in pubs, so it feels like one huge bonus to have such a holding, and it is money that would have been whittled away over the years anyway. So I guess that is the reason I hold, we are far away from the SP I hope for to complete the trade. Considering I paid 41p and 35p for my first shares pretty pleased my average is down to 14/15p. Seems very reachable now if we can just continue the good news we had a few weeks back. Can"t say I felt the same way when we hit 3/4p though, lol.
Must of been one of the 5k trades? Just finding it hard to work out buys/sells today, it doesn"t help waking up at 4.00!!
I think anybodies point of view is worthy, we just don"t know, but whether it is something wrong or something that brings good news, is anybodies guess. I find it hard to imagine what could be so wrong, it was only 7 weeks ago that we were told that patients will actively be recruited in the coming weeks, and my point yesterday, until it was twisted, was that 7 weeks on news is not overly overdue, although the trial from the very beginning is well overdue.
Crumbs, I have been thinking that too, i.e. the whole trial being in the U.K. or just perhaps by offering the FDA early data from the U.K arm that would be enough for them to grant the IND.
It is a very difficult one to call as we are not exactly sure of why the IND is being delayed so much, I have wondered that moving away from Ichor in future trials plays any part in this. But at the end of the day the party that knows as much as anybody, in fact probably more is Vulpes, and whatever the reason may be it obviously played no part in them deciding to go ahead with their investment in Scancell. So on that basis, we shall just have to wait and see what develops.
The opposite emotion to excitement is possibly frustration at any further delays, so I really get that and feel the same, but for now I will revert to the VULPES investment and any future investment as a very good reason not to overly worry about the situation. Communication from the B.O.D is an issue that often comes up, I thought at the last AGM that was high ion the agenda of PIs attending. I can assure you it is the biggest issue I have, one I have put forward a few times to Cliff and as I am definately attending this year will be something I will bring up. Nothing to do with how it affects our SP movements, I am not trading this, but simply because I strongly believe it could be better. Take care all.
Another example of R&D , to the benefit of many
Yea, again today, 3 x50k sells at 7.16, 7.00 and 7.10 of which 2 were UT trades. This has been going on for many weeks, with the odd 100k sell thrown in on bigger volumes. Could well add up to around 4/5m in total. Wonder who?
Good post Dracula, you are sounding more like a seasoned SCLP lth every post. Yes this FDA delay bothers me more than the UK arm beginning. You mention Pharma politics, which is something that i brought up 5 years ago after a discussion with a top Oncology consultant over Scancell.
So the MMs finally have brought us down to 7/7.50, not exactly a blue day, there was that UT trade last night to consider for 95k. Must say struggling a bit to work out buys/sells, the sells at 7 are easy, but were any trades above that around 7.12 buys? No idea, missed it all.
