OPKO Health (OPK)  I felt I needed to update you in the most recent developments pertaining  to OPKO Health

OPKO Health has received  from the FDA  Orphan Drug Status!

Here  are the headlines : This came out a day ahead of the companies Press Release from the stock news service theflyonthewall.com

OPKO Health unit gets orphan designation for hemophilia treatment

According to a post on the FDA's website, PROLOR Biotech, a unit of OPKO Health, received orphan designation for its long acting recombinant Factor VIIa-CTP3 for the treatment and prophylaxis of bleeding episodes in patients with hemophilia A or B with inhibitors to factor VIII or factor IX.

One of todays PR’s  dated 2/28/14 came from Business Wire and they elaborated on the news. 

Patients affected with this condition are  currently being treated by commercially-available Factor VIIa, with estimated 2013 worldwide sales of $1.7 billion. Ill write that down again in bigger font. 

2014 estimated  worldwide sales of $1.7

Here is more about what this special designation means

FDA's Orphan Drug Act of 1983 was designed to encourage the development of products that demonstrate promise for the diagnosis, prevention and/or treatment of life-threatening or very serious conditions that are rare and affect 200,000 persons or less in the U.S. The orphan drug designation provides for seven years of market exclusivity, reduction in regulatory fees, certain tax credits and additional regulatory support for R&D initiatives.

The thing that makes OPKO Health a great investment is it has Dr. Frost as the CEO.  Google Dr Frost for his list of achievements.

Dr. Phillip Frost, CEO of OPKO, commented, “We are pleased with the new orphan drug designation for Factor VIIa-CTP in the U.S., as it would allow OPKO seven years of marketing exclusivity upon commercialization of the drug. We have previously presented data in animal models of hemophilia showing that Factor Vlla-CTP demonstrates superiority across key efficacy and safety parameters compared to current Factor VIIa therapy. We are enthused about the potential for SC administration due to its improved bioavailability compared to presently available Factor VIIa IV therapy. Expecting to initiate a Phase IIa trial with our IV formulation in hemophilia patients in late 2014, we believe that we are in a unique position to be first to market with a longer acting Factor VIIa product.”

OPKO Health Short Squeeze

0 Comments

~~Record high Short Interest in OPKO Health (OPK) has placed the shorts in a very tough position.  Click here to see the SI http://www.nasdaq.com/symbol/opk/short-interest
With now 46Million shares  borrowed, these short sellers have recently doubled down on their bet that OPKO Health will continue to delay, disappoint.  Ive never really understood the short thesis.  They have over 160M in cash on the books.  That is more then enough to do their daily business for the next couple of years.    For those of you have  never heard of OPKO Health they are a rapidly  growing multinational pharmaceutical and diagnostics company.  They are led by CEO Dr. Frost (whose track record for creating millionairs is legendary).  Please see his Bio and his Insider Purchases. 
Todays announcement from OPKO Health is the main reason Im taking time to inform you of the impending Short Squeeze.  
2/13/2014.  Today  OPKO Health, Inc. (OPK) announced the successful completion of the calibration confirmation phase of the 4Kscore™ test clinical validation study currently underway at 21 urology clinics in the United States.
The OPKO 4Kscore™ test clinical validation protocol involves two parts: a calibration confirmation phase and a validation phase. The calibration confirmation phase evaluated the applicability of the 4Kscore™ algorithm, developed using banked samples from European studies, to the OPKO study samples collected in the United States and shipped directly to OPKO Lab in Nashville, TN for testing. The results confirmed the validity of the algorithm. The study is now more than 50% complete toward the final goal of 1,200 subjects. These results support the U.S. launch of the 4Kscore™ test in March 2014.
If you are unaware of the new piece of diagnostic equipment that OPKO Health is releasing world wide it is called the 4KScore.  Please click here to mead my most recent blog post about this.   http://organicchef.empowernetwork.com/
Here is an excerpt from my blog post that I feel sums it all up nicely. 
Opko Health has created a total game changer diagnostic test for the Prostate Cancer Market it is called the  4K Prostate Test — For patients with elevated levels of PSA, the current course of treatment entails a biopsy of the prostate — a costly and difficult procedure. I understand it is rather unpleasant.  Opko’s 4K test allows doctors to sidestep the prostate biopsy by using its proprietary software to analyze a patient’s blood to see if their elevated PSA levels should cause worry. This test has already launched in the U.K., and Opko has stated that it should launch it in the U.S.A. at some point in 2013. Of the 30mm PSA tests administered each year, 1-1.5mm of them result in a prostate biopsy. Opko contracted a third party consultant  making it around a $2 billion market.
OBAMA CARE may take the 4K SCORE over the top! Right now the test is being used to help urologists  Worldwide to see  if their elevated PSA results are malignant or not. The 4K will end needless  biopsies .  This piece of  equipment can also do other tests and this is just the beginning for OPKO. 
Before I leave here today I have to tell you a little about myself.  My username is Organicchef because I have been a Chef for my entire adult life.  Some of my hobbies are food related but I make my money investing in stocks and writing blog posts for the Empower Network.  If you want to be in the top pages of Google from your Blog posting efforts please click on one my bannor adds on this page  to find out more about the  Empower Network.  Send me an email and Ill get back to you.

Don’t freak out if your  Dr. has  told you that you  have an elevated PSA?

If you’re an aging Male you should learn about OPKO Health (OPK)

Full disclosure I hold long positions in Opko Health (OPK) and maybe you should buy some OPK too…. heres why.

Have you been told by your doctor that you have an elevated PSA and you may have to have a biopsy? 

Well if you have heard those words from your Dr. your in luck please read this:

  1. Opko Health has created a total game changer diagnostic test for the Prostate Cancer Market it is called the  4K Prostate Test — For patients with elevated levels of PSA, the current course of treatment entails a biopsy of the prostate — a costly and difficult procedure. I understand it is rather unpleasant.  Opko’s 4K test allows doctors to sidestep the prostate biopsy by using its proprietary software to analyze a patient’s blood to see if their elevated PSA levels should cause worry. This test has already launched in the U.K., and Opko has stated that it should launch it in the U.S.A. at some point in 2013. Of the 30mm PSA tests administered each year, 1-1.5mm of them result in a prostate biopsy. Opko contracted a third party consultant  making it around a $2 billion market.

The point is there is an alternative to the old fashion way to deal with an elevated PSA.  The crazy thing about the PSA is almost every male tests positive.

Opko’s newest prostate cancer test reduces the need for full biopsies, which are  more costly and more time-consuming than the typical POC test. On its corporate website, Opko predicts that 4Kscore “could lead to a 50% decrease” in the near “750,000 unnecessary prostate biopsies [that] are performed annually in the US” alone. A domestic launch is expected to occur  in the United States before year end 2013.

4Kscore™ Prostate Cancer Test

4Kscore™ is a next-generation prostate cancer test

  • In May 2012, OPKO licensed to International Health      Technology, Ltd. (Cambridge, England), the right to offer 4Kscore™’s      panel of novel kallikrein biomarkers in laboratory settings in the U.K.,      Ireland, Sweden, and Denmark.
  • In October 2012, IHT launched 4Kscore™ in Europe
  • OPKO is developing a point-of-care version of the      4Kscore™ biomarker panel.

Predicts indolent versus aggressive prostate cancer

  • A panel combining our PSA test and our novel kallikrein      markers could create a diagnostic test able to accurately predict prostate      cancer-positive biopsies

Could lead to a 50% decrease in unnecessary prostate biopsies

  • 750,000 unnecessary prostate biopsies are performed      annually in the US

 tested in over 10,000 patients

Now if you want a potential huge return on investment then you might want to read a couple of these bullet points before you buy (OPK)

The CEO is Dr. Phil Frost.  (google him and read his bio) he as created and sold 2 other bio- tech/drug companies making share holder rich both times.

Secondly he currently owns over 40% of the company and buys shares monthly with money out of his own pocket

and if that’s not enough to get you excited the stock is breaking out to an all time high.  as of 8/16 2013 the day I wrote this Blog Post.

The Los Angeles Dodgers

I may be a lot of things

But the color of my blood is Blue as in Dodger Blue.  Or as Magic might say A Whole New Blue.

So what Im going to do is when ever I feel like it Im going to pop in here and run this blog post together with all sorts of whats on my mind Dodgers.  It will be fun for me because I have a lot of really good things to say about the players and coaching decisions.

Aug 12 2013

So here is what me pissed off today in Dodger land.  Hanley Ramirez has missed a few games because of his shoulder right? and the word on the Dodger page is that he will back in line up sooner rather then later and according from him he will play through the pain.

www.dodgers.com

Excuse me Hanley I don’t think you should be in charge of your thinking if that’s your decision.  The dodgers keep winning and are expanding the lead in the NL West and you want to play through the pain.  Why don’t you just take another week off and we will see how you feel next week.  Remember what your playing for.   Your not playing to win games in August your playing to win games is Oct.  And you need to be 100% in Oct.  Keep out of lineup Don.

 

August 20 2013

Headline on Dodger home page is Matt  Kemp wont return until Sept.

My thoughts good who needs him.  He should do the right thing and give back his over paid salary to the Dodgers.  He plays 6 games then he’s out 6 weeks.  This last injury was a good example of how much his head is in the game.  HEs at third and when the ball is hit to first base he gives it a half assed attempt to score.  When he realizes there is a play at the plate he dosnt know what to do should I go in standing or slide? really….That’s the kinda of confusion you should have got out of your system in High school baseball.  Anyway is head was not in the game while he was at third and then he sprained his Ankle real bad.  I wonder if he has what Ryan Braun has no more juice running though his veins.

Oh yah a special note to Crawford….WAKE UP! stop being worthless Van Slyke will  do your job better and  for a lot less

OH Baby Im just getting started….thank you Empower Network

 

I am Jimi Rey AKA the organicchef.

I started www.jimirey.com in an attempt to organize my resource tools that I  needed to succeed in Internet marketing.

I want to say something right here right now. Im having a real bad experience with clicksure and Aaron Ward. If you ever come across a product sold by clicksure or Aaron Ward cash machines 2.0 do not buy it at all.  Both of these 2 groups are nothing but internet scammers and common criminals.  clicksure is set up outside the US and they wont refund any money to you even if the product  has a guarantee. There is no need to elaborate just stay away from Aaron Ward and cash machines 2.0 and clicksure
