    Not only this news failed to report its MS drug Trimesta's discussion which was the first item brought by the CEP and also the last item mentioned at the end for its significance. The CEO particularly mentioned the confusion related to the PII data. On top of the he mentioned consistently in the cc that multiple partners (with deep pockets) are interested in the data and are deciding whar angle to approach the drug with the partnership. Surprising this news never even mentioned Trismeta at all, but added " expect capital raise in the near future". which was never even mentioned or questions asked! Put all these deliberate omission and addition to this "news" follow-up, the attempt to drive down the share price is simply too obvious. Wonder how SA would have allowed such biased report in print. However the share price still is up substantially in a terrible downward market.
