  • Microsoft launches Office iPad apps; Nadella promises mobile/cloud focus [View news story]
    Has anyone heard of a company called Sphere 3D? (OTCQX:SPIHF)

    In my opinion, they are about to make compatibility issues of software platforms across different Operating systems obsolete.

  • Microsoft's Nadella set to make public debut with Office iPad version [View news story]
    IMO, Sphere 3D (OTCQX:SPIHF) is one step ahead with their impressive Glassware 2.0 technology. They are about to break through into the cloud industry in a huge way and I believe they will soon be uplisting to Nasdaq. Their proprietary tech allows anyone to use any program in its full native form with full features on any device, with no latency, no matter what OS they are using. It is really very impressive stuff and the market cap for this company is very low and they are flying very much under the radar - but not for long!

  • Read This Slowly: Microsoft's Non-Profitable Xbox One Is A Bullish Sign [View article]
    Great article that has the correct perspective on the Xbox One. This really is a multifaceted entertainment hub with still excellent gaming capabilities. Just being able to take those multiple tv, surround sound, and cable box remotes and set them aside in favor of simple voice commands is a fantastic feature to have, one that I suspect consumers will embrace more and more as time goes on. The road to monetization of this tech, and the multiple pathways for MSFT to generate revenue from all of this TV/video integration is going to be robust. There is alot to be said for products that can simplify our lives, Xbox one can be one of those products. Great write up QTR, long term I also believe this is a big, big winner for MSFT.

  • Cellceutix And Kevetrin Aligning With The Pharmacyclics Growth Curve [View article]
    Excellent article calling out the many parallels and similarities between CTIX and PCYC a few years back. Very well written and easy to follow. Nice job by the author. I have been saying for a while now that I believe the CTIX chart will look like the PCYC chart does today in short time.

    Excellent article, very well written with lots of good info and insight. The author has certainly made a compelling case here. If I were not tied up with another emerging biotech, I would certainly consider taking a strong position here after further DD.

    Great read, nice job. Look forward to your future contributions.

  • Cellceutix Corporation: The Next Generation Of Cancer Treatment Has Arrived [View article]
    A very encouraging development this morning and confirmation that my speculation in my article was correct. Cellceutix this morning announced an agreement with MD Anderson in Houston to perform a variety of studies with Kevetrin. Very encouraging that the planned studies seem to be pretty comprehensive and well thought out. I beleive this relationship will pay big dividends for CTIX down the road, and another world renowned cancer center funding studies for Kevetrin certainly speaks to the potential that MD Anderson sees in Kevetrin.

    Here is the Press Release from this morning :

    Cellceutix Signs Material Transfer Agreement for Research of Kevetrin in Lymphoma and Multiple Myeloma Cancers With Major Cancer Center

    Beverly, MA -- 06/26/13 -- Cellceutix Corporation (OTCBB: CTIX) (the “Company”), a clinical stage biopharmaceutical company focused on discovering small molecule drugs to treat unmet medical conditions, including drug-resistant cancers and autoimmune diseases, announces today that the Company has signed a Material Transfer Agreement (MTA) with The University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center (“MD Anderson”). Per the MTA, Cellceutix will provide MD Anderson with Kevetrin, the Company’s novel anti-cancer drug candidate, for laboratory research of Kevetrin as a potential new treatment for Lymphoma and Multiple Myeloma.

    MD Anderson intends to utilize in vivo and in vitro methods to research specific pathways, gene expression, mechanism of action and apoptotic activity of Kevetrin in a range of concentrations and time points in both mutant and wild-type p53 Myeloma and Lymphoma cell lines. Research is also planned to evaluate Kevetrin against models of Multiple Myeloma cell lines that are resistant to bortezomib, lenalidomide and other FDA-approved chemotherapies. Additional studies will be conducted evaluating the anti-tumor activity of Kevetrin when used as a combination therapy with several FDA-approved drugs. MD Anderson will provide funding for these studies of Kevetrin defined by the MTA.

    “This is another significant development in our advancement of Kevetrin. We are thrilled by the collaboration and MD Anderson’s interest in researching Kevetrin as a potential new drug for Multiple Myeloma and Lymphoma,” said Leo Ehrlich, Chief Executive Officer at Cellceutix. “Currently moving through clinical trials for solid tumors at Harvard’s Dana-Farber Cancer Center, Kevetrin being evaluated for blood cancers at MD Anderson puts our novel drug in the hands of innovative and experienced scientists at two of the most prestigious cancer research centers in the world, bar none. MD Anderson has defined a robust course of study that will provide invaluable insight to the anti-tumor activity of Kevetrin that will be used to plan for additional clinical trials as we continue to execute our strategy to aim Kevetrin at a broad spectrum of cancer lines.”

  • Cellceutix Corporation: The Next Generation Of Cancer Treatment Has Arrived [View article]
    Hello olsondavid and me39,
    Thank you for voicing your thoughts here, i appreciate and respect all opinions, as I would hope others would do for me even if they strongly disagree.. I understand that my opinions about Kevetrin are about as bullish as can be, and it certainly is not a view I expect everyone to have. However, I do want to clarify that although my thoughts are very direct and optimistic, I genuinely believe in the science and the management here. I am a long term investor in Cellceutix, and certainly not interested in any shady attempts at quick profits or "pump and dump" as its called. I am holding this stock because I believe it will be very successful once Kevetrin is fully proven with solid human clinical trial data.

    Fortunately for all of us, whether you are the biggest bull on CTIX as I am, or the biggest skeptic as some may be, the good news is that the human trials at Harvard have been dosing for going into 7 months now, and the team at Dana Farber will be doing a poster presentation at the ASCO conference at the end of this month. I do believe at this point and shortly after the facts and the trial data will draw a clear picture of just how Kevetrin is performing. I wish you both the best of luck in whatever choices of investments you pursue. - TP

  • Which Drug Moves Cellceutix First: Kevetrin Or Prurisol? [View article]
    There are many eyes on the Kevetrin trial. Targeting P53 and successfully activating this gene with low toxicity would without a doubt be a breakthrough into the next gen of cancer treatment. Will be very interesting to see trial data and results as the current phase 1 human trial at Harvard now enters its 7th month of dosing advanced stage 4 patients.

  • Pfizer Eyes Kevetrin? [View article]
    This article is more relevant today than ever. We are awaiting the next Phase I clinical trial update from Harvard. The next step is to approve a 4th cohort and elevate dosing. So far, so good with the trial as no Dose Limiting Toxicities have been reported.

    There is also a steady buzz speculating about the CEO's recent comments that Dana Farber has decided to initiate P21 biomarker testing so early in the trial. This could potentially signal at a very early stage that Kevetrin is activating P53 in humans as it did in animal studies. Clearly Harvard would not waste it's time testing for P21 unless they believed they had some compelling data to justify it.

    Things are about to get very interesting for Cellceutix and it's shareholders. ASCO, the super bowl of oncology, is right around the corner and Cellceutix will be center stage with a poster presentation. Perhaps a big announcement declaring efficacy will follow shortly after?
