Biotech /Pharma Stock Trading Alert: Antares (NYSE Amex: AIS) Doubles From December 15th Lows

New York , NY - March 30 , 2012- Investorideas.com, an investor research portal specializing in sector research including biotech and pharma stocks, issues a trading alert and updated commentary from Josh Levine of the Levine MicroCap Newsletter, for Antares Pharma, Inc. (NYSE Amex: AIS).



In an Alert in mid December, Levine said the negative results on LibiGel’s Phase III trials for efficacy, which were issued by AIS partner BioSante Pharmaceuticals is “only a minor bump in the road for Antares. Today’s 30%-plus drop in AIS shares is an overreaction and the stock will rebound fully in time.” He concluded: “If you don't own AIS, I recommend taking advantage of this anomaly. If you were considering adding to your current position, this is the time to move.”

Levine followed up on December 30 with this comment about AIS: “Antares has surged 30% in two weeks and is again trading above its 200-day moving average. The market quickly and correctly recognized that the LibiGel event does nothing to tarnish the company’s outlook, which has never been stronger.”

Today, the stock is trading at $3.30, up strongly from its sell off and low of $1.51 on December 15th. As the chart below illustrates, AIS shares have experienced some wild swings during the past year. Most notable was the plunge taken in December.

The shares traded as high as $3.45 on March 26, marking a gain of more than 100% in less than four months. AIS is now higher than its 2011 peak and trading at a level it hasn’t seen in a decade.

“When big inefficiencies in the market arise for small stocks, it presents great buying opportunities,” says Levine. “Understand that every situation is different and we must weigh a range of factors, starting with the news or event that caused the drop. In the case of AIS, it was abundantly clear the event was equivalent to a minor scratch, and the market’s overreaction was a gift for investors.”

Medical Technology Stock Alert; PositiveID Corporation (OTCBB:PSID) Receives Nucleic Acids From the CDC Influenza Division to Develop a Diagnostic Assay to Detect H5N1 Avian Flu

DELRAY BEACH, Fla. - March 28, 2012 (Investorideas.com newswire) - PositiveID Corporation (OTCBB:PSID), an emerging growth company and developer of advanced technologies for diabetes management as well as sophisticated airborne bio-threat detection systems for America's homeland defense industry, announced today that it has received material from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) Influenza Division-National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases to develop a diagnostic assay to detect Influenza A H5N1, also known as avian flu. This assay will provide a test result in less than 30 minutes at the point of care, and is expected to be available for the upcoming flu season for diagnostic and surveillance applications.

The United Nations has urged people to be ready against a possible but major resurgence of the avian flu. According to the CDC, of the few avian influenza viruses that have crossed the species barrier to infect humans, the mutant strain of bird flu has caused the largest number of detected cases of severe disease and death in humans. Human cases of avian influenza A (H5N1) have been reported in Asia, Africa, Europe, Indonesia, Vietnam, the Pacific, and the near East. Slightly more than 60 percent of those who became ill have died.

PositiveID's assay for avian flu, as well as its other currently available assays, will run on the Company's patented Dragonfly Rapid MDx platform. Dragonfly was created out of the Company's M-BAND system, which was developed under contract from the Department of Homeland Security. The H5N1 assay will also be compatible with other commercial platforms.

The Company currently has proven assays for E.coli O157:H7; human papilloma virus (HPV); methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA); and a multiplex bio-threat assay that simultaneously tests for six bio-threat organisms on the CDC Category A and B list.

The development of an H5N1 assay is the Company's most recent push into the clinical diagnostics market, where it will offer faster, less expensive testing methods than those that are commonly used.

William J. Caragol, Chairman and CEO of PositiveID, stated, "Our assay for H5N1, as well as our other clinical diagnostic assays, will be faster and less expensive than the industry standard testing protocol. Furthermore, our microfluidic technology is highly adaptable, which enables us to develop new assays for emerging bio-threats and viruses relatively quickly, which we believe will help us as we enter the clinical diagnostic market."

Medical Technology Stock Alert; PositiveID Corporation (OTCBB:PSID) Finalizes First-in-Class Development of a Fully Synthetic Glucose Sensing System, a Critical Component of an Artificial Pancreas

DELRAY BEACH, Fla. - March 5, 2012 (Investorideas.com newswire) - PositiveID Corporation (OTCBB:PSID), a developer of medical technologies for diabetes management, announced today that it has finalized its first-in-class development of a fully synthetic glucose sensing system to measure glucose levels within the body for people with diabetes. PositiveID and its partner RECEPTORS LLC believe they are the first to develop a fully synthetic, stable, sensitive, selective sensing system that is responsive to glucose in human plasma, which is considered to be a critical step in the development of an artificial pancreas.

PositiveID's glucose sensing system is the mission-critical component of its GlucoChip(TM), glucose-sensing microchip for people with diabetes, and is based on PositiveID's Patent No. 7,125,382 for an "Embedded Bio-Sensor System." The Embedded Bio-Sensor System patent covers any bio-sensor system that utilizes radio frequency identification technology and includes a remote transponder in wireless communication with an implantable, passively-powered, on-chip transponder.

PositiveID previously announced it created and demonstrated a continuous glucose sensing system in a model blood plasma matrix, and has now advanced development of the sensing system to respond to glucose levels in human plasma. PositiveID also has a patent pending with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office covering its invention of the stable and reproducible, closed-cycle continuous glucose-sensing system. PositiveID now has five patents and patents pending surrounding the development of GlucoChip.

William J. Caragol, Chairman and CEO of PositiveID, stated, "The development of a fully implantable glucose sensor is one of the essential requirements for the successful development of an artificial pancreas. We believe that with the combined expertise of Receptors and our strong intellectual property portfolio that surrounds the development of our GlucoChip project, we are well positioned to play a potentially significant role in making an artificial pancreas a reality for people with type 1 diabetes."

More than 25 million children and adults in the U.S. have diabetes, or over 8 percent of the population, according to the 2011 National Diabetes Fact Sheet. The CDC predicts that nearly 30 percent of children born after the year 2000 will develop diabetes. The lifetime risk of developing diabetes for those born in the year 2000 is 35 percent. The total cost of diagnosed diabetes in the U.S. is estimated at $200 billion.

PositiveID also recently announced positive preliminary results from its biotransport research study relating to its GlucoChip. Preliminary results demonstrate that the membrane materials to be used with GlucoChip allow for successful movement of glucose from body fluids.

Statements about PositiveID's future expectations, including the likelihood that PositiveID has finalized its first-in-class development of a fully synthetic glucose sensing system to measure glucose levels within the body for people with diabetes; the likelihood that PositiveID and its partner Receptors LLC are the first to develop a fully synthetic, stable, sensitive, selective sensing system that is responsive to glucose in human plasma, which is considered to be a critical step in the development of an artificial pancreas; the likelihood that the development of a fully implantable glucose sensor is one of the essential requirements for the successful development of an artificial pancreas; the likelihood that with the combined expertise of Receptors and PositiveID's strong intellectual property portfolio that surrounds the development of its GlucoChip project, the companies are well positioned to play a potentially significant role in making an artificial pancreas a reality for people with type 1 diabetes; the likelihood that nearly 30 percent of children born after the year 2000 will develop diabetes; the likelihood that the lifetime risk of developing diabetes for those born in the year 2000 is 35 percent; and all other statements in this press release other than historical facts are "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, and as that term is defined in the Private Litigation Reform Act of 1995.
