    do not invest in this company. The product was purchased from another company that went bankrupt (or something similar) after FDA did not approve Locilex. Do a google search on Locilex. Be very aware and stay away from this company; much better value out there

    AFTAB - FDA didn't approve due to manufacturing stability and API quality issues. Page 3/4 of the S-1 discuss steps management took before IPO'ing to address these issues.


    Phase III was mixed in the results in the late 90s. One positive one Neg and Pooled +. Company has designed this trial w/ the information from that. Still from what the S-1 says the non-approvable letter was due to manufacturing issues specifically.
