Opexa

Hi everyone,
Not really sure what this means but Opexa is the company that is researching Tovaxin. I am hoping that this means more money for them which I hope will go towards research and marketing of the drug? Anyone with some stock market background that could clarify?

Stem cell story

For the last 18 months the British press was full of stories about MS sufferers who had stem cell treatment in Holland and had seen miraculous recoveries. Now all the stories are about the same people who no longer see any benefit!
