    I agree, in fact I did do a chart for VICL

    I felt a little stronger about NVAX so I posted that one.

    Just a tid bit.

    I'm a Operating room nurse and one of the surgeons was basically talking about how this company is able to grow what they need quicker than in the past. (which was to use eggs). So that could be a good thing.

    Out of all I like Vical the most,since it's more than just H1N1.

    Vical Inc. (VICL) said it received a U.S. patent for influenza vaccines, including for H1N1 it has been developing and is waiting to test on humans.
    Shares jumped 15% premarket to $5.01. The stock has more than tripled this year.
    Vical is developing vaccines both for H5N1 Avian and H1N1 swine flu. Both vaccines use Vical's patented Vaxfectin adjuvant, which has been shown in tests to enhance immunity. The H5N1 vaccine completed early-stage testing last year.
    In June, Vical said its prototype swine-flu vaccine was ready for a large-scale tryout on people after the drug developer reported encouraging results of tests on mice and rabbits. But the company reiterated it needed funding to begin large-scale manufacturing of the vaccine for human clinical trials.
    Last week, the World Health Organization said H1N1 had overtaken other viruses to become the most prevalent flu strain. At least 2,185 people have died after contracting the swine flu virus. WHO also has urged the world to brace for a second wave of the swine flu pandemic as the heavily populated northern hemisphere edges toward the cooler season when flu thrives.
    The U.S. government said in May it was setting aside $1 billion to launch development of an H1N1 vaccine, but the bulk of the money will be going to drug giants Novartis AG (NVS), Sanofi-Aventis SA (SNY) and GlaxoSmithKline PLC (GSK).

    Is this thread about NVAX, or VICL? I am very confused.

    Would you please start a new thread on VICL? Or be more specific in your posts?
