Hemispherx Biopharma, Inc,HEB
CEO of Hemispherx Biopharma is proported to regularly use an eight year old government report to assure investors the company's chronic fatigue syndrome drug will be approved soon.
The evidence is mounting that Carter is seeking to divert investors' attention away from the delayed approval of Ampligen as a treatment for chronic fatigue syndrome. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration was supposed to announce its decision May 25, but on May 26, Hemispherx said the FDA asked for a "brief delay" of one to two weeks.

The Sage Group, a privately held international health care consulting group, announced recently that HemispherX Biopharma has expanded the mandate for The Sage Group to include, in addition to the strategic partnering efforts related to Ampligen (an experimental immunotherapeutic) for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, additional partnering efforts related to Ampligen's use to increase the effectiveness of preventative pandemic flu vaccines and the additional role of Alferon LDO (an experimental therapeutic) for treating various types of pandemic flu.
In particular, Sage is assisting HemispherX in its work with the Japanese government in the rapid development of a response strategy for pandemic flu. According to Time Magazine, the number of swine flu cases in Japan are escalating with surprising speed, and health officials are not sure why.

Hemispherx Biopharma, Inc. (NYSE Amex:HEB) today announced that the U.S. Food and Drug administration ("FDA") has advised the company that it may require up to 1-2 additional weeks to take action beyond the scheduled Prescription Drug User Fee Act action date of May 25, 2009 on the New Drug Application for Ampligen(r) (Poly I Poly C12U), a selective TLR3 modulator, for the management of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Reason for the possible delay was attributed by the Agency to certain staff scheduling changes which might (or might not) delay the report. Accordingly the Company's development plan for Ampligen(r) continues as described in the recently filed 10Q and 10K, as the FDA did not request additional information from the Company at this time.
