  3. gday drrc QUOTE Interestingly, 92% (12/13) of the patients with extra-pulmonary TB were QFN-RD1 positive, whereas only 39% (5/13) were positive by M/C (P < 0.02) Also interesting is this In 1998 in England and Wales, the Public Health Laboratory Service reported that more than one-third of 6087 TB notifications (2161) were NPD. NPD (non-pulmonary tuberculosis disease) was most common in children (51% in 0-14-year-olds), and decreased with increasing age. It was also more common in non-white ethnic groups. http://www.extenza-eps.com/extenza/loadHTM...9&type=abstract NPD may be another area of concern for health workers. cheers rog
  4. In reply to: drrc on Wednesday 13/10/04 07:00pm Gday drrc The latest JAMA report continues to emphasis the importance of diagnosing LTB not Active TB, and the TST guide shows how difficult complex TST is to use in the diagnosis of LTB cheers rog
  5. In reply to: dr_dazmo on Wednesday 13/10/04 10:22am I think the whole board is moving over Dr D - market forces prevail - ozestock out to lunch http://www.ShareScene.com/html/emoticons/wacko.gif
  6. In reply to: dr_dazmo on Tuesday 12/10/04 04:04pm General consensus Dr D?- no idea would be close to the mark. It could be tomorrow or next week they might say another 4 weeks. However the inventory accumulation is a significant indicator of imminent sales.

    In reply to: Stock_Doctor on Tuesday 28/09/04 09:31pm Well then Doc after your enthusiastic support for DMX no wonder you are a little hangdog - time for some medicine?
  10. In reply to: drrc on Thursday 16/09/04 11:19pm Thats a good reference DRRC and the experience has been that the improved QFT-Gold detected TB where no other test would. Reference CST 7 th July 2004 QuantiFERON-TB Gold detects fatal tuberculosis when all else has failed A recent article in the Scandinavian Journal of Infectious Disease describes a case study where the QuantiFERON-TB Gold test (QFT-Gold) diagnosed TB infection that was missed by all conventional methods. The diagnosis was made in an experimental study in early 2001 where the treating clinicians were "blind" to the QuantiFERON result. The patient had a negative TB skin test, normal chest X-ray, and an extensive search for the TB bacteria in body fluids showed nothing. As a consequence, the patient was assumed to be TB negative. Despite the best efforts and expense with conventional diagnosis, the person did have TB infection, and after being given intensive immunosuppressive medication, the patient developed advanced tuberculosis. There were complications in treatment, and the patient died after a short period. QFT-Gold, however, had indicated TB infection three months before the person was diagnosed with TB disease, but as this was an experimental study the physicians were blind to the QFT-Gold result to avoid biasing their clinical diagnosis. The details of the study are available in the publication of Ravn et al 2004 in the Scandinavian Journal of Infectious Diseases 36; 499-501. Although "blind" studies are common in medical testing of new products, Cellestis does not recommend clinicians testing QFT-Gold use a blind study design. This was an early study, and QFT- Gold is now an established and effective diagnostic for TB infection. The data in the case study publication demonstrates the ability of QFT-Gold to find some cases of TB infection that are missed by all other methods. It also displays the need for QFT-Gold testing where immunosuppressive medicines or other causes of immune failure may lead to fatal activation of tuberculosis.
  11. Oavde, I cant for the life of me figure out what you are saying (black/white candles etc), particularly against the this weeks trading. Could you elucidate? cheers rog
  12. QUOTE rog, you are a fool. Thank you for your kind words Sheron, as I said, a campaign of unsubstantiated innuendo.
  13. What sheron omitted to say that sheron is the author, on another board, of the "as mentioned on another board there will be limited sales in the financials this year etc". Just another campaign of unsubstantiated innuendo.
  14. Thats right fforrest, an announcement would consolidate at higher levels, and an announcement or even two is due soon.
  15. Well 207 is history and 220 was the breakout so a spike to +300 is on the cards. Great news for long term holders.

    Can I take it zac (pints) that the huge finacial interest(meaning options) has yet to be exercised and that unless the situation (of option expiry dates) is rectified, can never be exercised?
  21. g'day C its the Fibonacci number system that some follow, some say it works, others dont, anyway $2.07 is one of the CST nos of resistance and it seems to have gone thru it convincingly
  22. Good volume and interest as anticipated FDA approval draws near has seen the price move to 205, no now 208!.
  23. The latest Cellestis announcement (issued after market 2/4/04) regarding the release of the results of the pivotal Japan study will also have a significant impact. This study is about to be published in the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine (AJRCCM) and a summary can be read on here The Japan study found that QFT test, used in conjunction with two specific antigens, gave a specificity of 98.1% in detecting latent TB whereas the skin test, or TST, gave a specificity of 35.4%. The study also noted that the specificity of QFT could be higher than calculated. The QFT test, with the two antigens, is the second generation Quantiferon test and is known as QFT-Gold. In regards to the current and proposed methods of diagnosing latent TB and comparing those with the Quantiferon (IFN) test the Japan test concluded by saying that:- In addition to the high diagnostic accuracy resulting from the use of M. tuberculosis specific antigens, the whole blood IFN assay offers many methodological and logistical advantages, both over the TST and other laboratory methods of immunological testing. The test requires a single patient visit, does not induce boosting of subsequent test results, and can provide results within one day. Inter-reader variability is low and results are highly reproducible[27] as it is a controlled laboratory assay. Importantly, whole blood testing uses minimal labor and simple equipment, allowing large numbers of samples to be tested concurrently.
