After the halting of Xolair testing. I was wondering if any of you felt that mabey they will finally go back to tnx-901. This drug was about to enter phase-3 trials and had proven clinical trials, before Lawyers and greed by Genentech and Novartis stopped any futher tests by Tanox. I havent been able to find any info. Thanx Jags

Jags,

Here's a summary of what happened to TNX-901.

An interesting development was reported last month - that Genentech was purchasing Tanox.

Whether that means that someday down the road, we could somehow see TNX-901 re-appear is a really interesting question... I would think that because Novartis was part of the legal settlement, nothing could happen with TNX-901 until Xolair work is complete (which will take years)...

I've bumped my thread in the Media board about the sale of Tanox to Genentech (which was mistyped in my subject line).
