Thought I would start a topic for Okyanos. Came across something clearly showing they are NOT ready for prime time just yet, after reading for months from the website that January 2013 would be D-Day so to speak. This comes from from the "Freeport News", Ian Fair, Chairman
Grand Bahama Port Authority, Ltd. Dated March 25, 2013. Other business on goings on the island were written about as well.

"We are also eagerly anticipating the proposed Okyanos Heart Institute to officially open on Grand Bahama, which will provide cardiac stem cell therapy to patients with chronic coronary artery disease."

Clearly something that was anticipated behind the scenes did not come to fruition. Regulatory perhaps? I still have not heard publicly of one patient being treated there yet, and have been following it quite close. It would be interesting to know if a waiting list exists.

:bash: :bash:

I spoke with Matt about two weeks ago and the way I understood it, is that the Bahama´s are preparing some "official" legislation to back up their say unofficial approval of the Cytori technology and Matt expects to open sometime June.

I do not know what delayed everything in the past, but thats the plan right now.

by the way- I saw on LinkedIn today that he posted an interesting interview with himself on the Okyanos page with respect what made him do what he did. Good reason to visit the site again I think. :winky:

Board moderator and Site-owner. I still regret the day I started analysing the prospects of MacroPore (now Cytori) back in 2004- a left-over from the tech-bubble at that time from the century change in my portfolio- and became addicted to Cytori´s fat cell technology. :cry:

Hi d9...glad you made the trip over to this site !!! :happy:

We need every dollar in sales we can get but it will be years before this clinic or many others matter much to the bottom line imho. :yawn:

Personally...I am more interested in seeing the indication sales pipeline broaden...this all or none focus in cardiac has me a bit nervous.
The translational stuff is all very early imho ...other opinions differ a bit.
UK Breast...dead...at least near term and Japan is still a unknown for this reimbursement.

As always..we are running on a cash shoestring.
That means zero leverage.
On another note I see our short friends have picked up activity again adding 343K shares to the short holdings in the first two weeks of March/2013. CC the most brilliant CEO of all time in their eyes....LOL :evil: :bash: :KO: :cry: :puke:
