I don't know about the rest of you, but I bought this stock based on Thorpe's approved patents and the early Bavi clinical studies.

It seems that Peregrine management and BOD have done everything reasonable to forward the Bavi agenda given the limited financial resources available. Running the trials overseas in Georgia and India could not have been easy, but they did it and got promising results. As in many other cases Bavi may not pan out in later stage trials. I don't blame management for trying with Bavi, and I don't blame management for the perversity of Mother Nature. I could blame them for excessive optimism, but the science seemed sound to them just as it seemed sound to us.

I don't like that managment has diluted the heck out of our stock, but I really don't buy any of the alternative financing plans I've seen presented here. I am a retired CPA; so I have some confidence assessment on this point.

If Bavi finally hits it out of the park with second line NSCLC, there is still a chance for us to make money. Otherwise, this has been a very expensive lesson in wishful thinking on biotechs. I blame only myself if Peregrine flops. I never should have thrown so much money into such a crap shoot.
