    The Drug Belviq (Bel-Veek) was approved last year, ARNA investors have seen the $2 stock rise to $12 and settle back to $8 over past year.

    Next week BELVIQ will be available in USA for prescription for just under $200/month. It helps manage patients will critical weight management needs as alternative to much more expensive treatments.

    Investors in ARNA hope the milestone payment from EISAI of $65 Million for meeting FDA Approval will help launch the new drug into a huge global obesity treatment market.

    The OPTIONS on ARNA are seeing some major activity in anticipation of what hopes to be the best MONTH of revenue in years for this BIOTECH wonder. Some CALL OPTIONS are up 400% this week, as people pile in on speculation that the sales will be fantastic for the new medicine.

    So what does this new drug do? It apparently saves the health care system a lot of money from other therapeutic treatments, it saves some patients from expensive surgury and it does what it claims...it helps them suppress appetite and lose body mass in a reasonable time frame.

    Are they the only Drug maker with this product? NO, but they are the FIRST TO MARKET, and that means they are being watched by their peers, both VVUS (Vivus Pharma) and OREX (Orexigen) have skin in the game too, but their drug candidates are not yet approved.

    Author’s reply » belviq tv commercials started airing this week, so far Arena has spent $500K on ispot.tv ads so within a month we will see if the ads affect the scripts written for the new weigh loss drug.
