We still have 15k shares of VCEL with cost basis of $3.32. We surely are not down 96.2% from all time high; rather we are up 1066.85% at close of $38.75.

Assuming VCEL gets the NexoBrid approval this year, I can see your 1066.85% becoming 5000% by end 2023. Not kidding here, all VCEL products are basically without competition and without generic pathways.

What do you see re direction of market the rest of year, AMRN in particular?

I only have a small position in AMRN........ its prospects seem murky to me, they don't seem to have stemmed generic erosion in the USA, and its always the USA that gets reflected in price.... of course PFE signing on for Canadian sales suggests interest. As for the market, who knows, but one would think recovery to some norm is inevitable. The most clear winners like VCEL should lead.

Surely an error in that it fails to calculate for one or two reverse splits by ASTM which was the former ticker until VCEL basically purchased it as a shell.

June 29th is when the FDA will reply to the request for approval.
If they say yes, then VCEL can sell NexoBrid in the USA.
Sales would be in Q3 of 2021

it sucks!

Vericel Corporation (NASDAQ: VCEL) today announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has accepted for filing the recently submitted Biologics License Application (BLA) for NexoBrid® (concentrate of proteolytic enzymes enriched in bromelain) for eschar removal (debridement) in adults with deep partial-thickness and/or full-thickness thermal burns. The FDA assigned a Prescription Drug User Fee Act (PDUFA) target date of June 29, 2021. In addition, the FDA communicated that it is not currently planning to hold an advisory committee meeting to discuss the application.

“The FDA’s acceptance of the NexoBrid BLA for review represents another important milestone toward our goal of providing a new standard of care for eschar removal in patients with severe burns,” said Nick Colangelo, President and CEO of Vericel. “We look forward, together with MediWound, to working with the FDA during the BLA review process as we seek marketing approval for NexoBrid in the United States.”

Sharon Malka, CEO of MediWound added, “The acceptance of the NexoBrid BLA is a major milestone for MediWound and it is gratifying to know NexoBrid is one step closer to being available to help burn victims in the United States. We thank all of the investigators, their teams, our employees and all our partners, especially BARDA and Vericel, for their commitment to the program.”

Vericel will host a virtual Analyst and Investor Day on Friday, October 16, 2020, from 9:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m. EST which will focus on NexoBrid. In addition to a general corporate update, Vericel executives will facilitate discussions with burn surgeon thought leaders on current burn debridement practices and how NexoBrid, upon approval, could change the current treatment paradigm for debridement of severe thermal burns.

MediWound and Vericel Announce Acceptance of the First Delivery of NexoBrid to BARDA for Emergency Response Preparedness

YAVNE, Israel and CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Aug. 25, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MediWound Ltd. (NASDAQ: MDWD) and its U.S. commercial partner Vericel Corporation (NASDAQ: VCEL) today announced that the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA), part of the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR) at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, has accepted the first shipment of NexoBrid® (concentrate of proteolytic enzymes enriched in Bromelain) as part of its mission to build national preparedness for public health emergencies. The initial BARDA procurement of NexoBrid is valued at $16.5 million, which includes additional quarterly deliveries planned through the end of 2021. In addition, BARDA holds an option to procure additional quantities of NexoBrid through funding of up to $50 million.

“This first shipment of NexoBrid is another major milestone in our longstanding partnership with BARDA, and we look forward to delivering the full procurement by the end of 2021,” said MediWound Chief Executive Officer Sharon Malka. “The acceptance of the first delivery by BARDA during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic underscores the importance of NexoBrid to U.S. national preparedness for the potential emergency treatment of large numbers of patients with severe thermal burns injuries.”

“The procurement of NexoBrid for our nation’s response preparedness is one of many key NexoBrid activities occurring in 2020,” said Nick Colangelo, President and Chief Executive Officer of Vericel. “This shipment, combined with the recent BLA submission and growing number of burn centers enrolled in the NexoBrid expanded access treatment protocol, bring us a step closer to ensuring that healthcare providers have both the supply and training needed to enzymatically debride burn patients, whether the need is due to individual accidents or a burn mass casualty event.”

On June 30, 2020, a Biologics License Application (BLA) was submitted to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) seeking the approval of NexoBrid for eschar removal (debridement) in adults with deep partial-thickness and/or full-thickness thermal burns. While the BLA is being reviewed by the FDA, burn centers across the U.S. are treating burn patients under the NexoBrid expanded access (NEXT) protocol.

The procurement is a key milestone of the Project BioShield (PBS) contract between MediWound and BARDA which was signed in September 2015 with procurement initiated in January 2020. Under the PBS contract, BARDA provides funds and support for the advancement of the development and manufacturing of NexoBrid, as well as the procurement of NexoBrid as a medical countermeasure for mass casualty emergencies involving thermal burns. In May 2019, Vericel entered into exclusive license and supply agreements with MediWound to commercialize NexoBrid in North America. As part of the license agreement, Vericel and MediWound will equally split gross profits generated by BARDA’s initial $16.5 million procurement.

In October 2019, MediWound initiated the NEXT protocol, which is supported and funded by BARDA and enables the continued clinical use of NexoBrid for U.S. patients during the preparation and review of the NexoBrid BLA. NEXT is an open-label, single-arm treatment protocol which allows for the treatment of up to 150 burn patients with deep partial- and full-thickness thermal burns up to 30 percent of total body surface area. NEXT has been designed to be consistent with current real-life burn treatment practices in the U.S. and up to 30 U.S. burn centers are anticipated to participate. MediWound received FDA concurrence that patients can be treated under the NEXT protocol in a burn mass casualty incident that is not a declared national emergency. Therefore, this provides a mechanism for U.S. burn centers to treat patients and gain valuable experience using Nexobrid prior to FDA approval as well as making the product readily available for response to mass burn emergencies.

BARDA submitted a Pre-Emergency Use Authorization (PEUA) to FDA for the intended use of NexoBrid under an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) during a declared emergency involving burn injuries. The availability of medical countermeasures (MCMs), such as Nexobrid, which mitigate preparedness gaps (like debridement and excision steps of burn care) will add to the United States Government’s armamentarium for treatment of mass burn casualties. The EUA is a mechanism by which the FDA can allow an unapproved medical product that qualifies as a mass casualty medical countermeasure to be used in a public health emergency.

unfortunately there isn't any catalyst until November, after the Elections. The only single news is MDWD acceptance by the FDA, as soon as this month, with the PDUFA FDA decision date assigned.

The bad news is that VCEL has several up gaps

up Jul-01-2020 13.85 to 13.905
up Apr-17-2020 11.22 to 11.42
up Apr-06-2020 8.66 to 8.79

Vericel Announces Preliminary Second Quarter 2020 Financial Results and Provides Business Updates
8:30 am ET July 9, 2020 (Globe Newswire) Print

Vericel Corporation (NASDAQ:VCEL), a leader in advanced therapies for the sports medicine and severe burn care markets, today announced preliminary financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2020, and provided business updates.

Preliminary Second Quarter Financial Results

-- Preliminary total net product revenues for the second quarter are expected to be approximately $20 million, including approximately $15 million of MACI (autologous cultured chondrocytes on porcine collagen membrane) net revenue and approximately $5 million of Epicel (cultured epidermal autografts) net revenue;

-- Total net product revenues for the second quarter decreased approximately 23% compared to the second quarter of 2019, with MACI net revenue decreasing approximately 27% and Epicel net revenue decreasing approximately 8% compared to the second quarter of 2019;

-- Total net product revenues, which declined approximately 78% in April and 32% in May compared to the same periods in 2019, increased approximately 30% in June compared to June 2019;

-- Total net product revenues for the first half of 2020 decreased approximately 2% compared to the first half of 2019, with MACI net revenue decreasing approximately 5% and Epicel net revenue increasing approximately 7% compared to the first half of 2019; and

-- As of June 30, 2020, the company had approximately $81 million in cash and investments and no debt.

Second Quarter Business Updates

-- MACI implants, which declined approximately 84% in April and 37% in May compared to the same periods in 2019, increased approximately 21% in June compared June 2019;

-- MACI biopsies declined approximately 79% in April and 22% in May compared to the same periods in 2019, and increased approximately 23% in June compared June 2019;

-- Approximately 70% of scheduled MACI cases that were cancelled in the first half of 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic have been rescheduled, with over 50% of the cancelled cases completed by the end of the second quarter;

-- Epicel graft volume, which declined 70% in April, increased approximately 20% in the May through June period compared to the same period in 2019; and

-- Epicel biopsies increased by approximately 6% in the second quarter compared to the second quarter of 2019.

"We saw a very strong recovery for MACI during the second quarter as restrictions on elective surgeries were lifted across the country," said Nick Colangelo, President and CEO of Vericel. "While considerable uncertainties related to COVID-19 remain, absent a significant resurgence in restrictions related to COVID-19 we expect growth for MACI in the third quarter, albeit at a more moderate rate compared to pre-COVID-19 levels given the decline in MACI biopsies in April and May. We will continue to monitor the evolving landscape and we look forward to updating investors on our second quarter earnings call."

The company will host a webcast and conference call to discuss its second quarter 2020 financial results and business highlights on August 5, 2020 at 8:30am Eastern Time.

We should see a response back on acceptance within 2 months.
I don't want to speculate on impact and timing for final approval.
Everyone seems to be looking forward to 2021 with this covid taking away 2020.

How long does it take the FDA to approve the license and if approved will it get any kind of a decent bump at all

When the FDA "accepts" the Nexobrid filing, it will assign a a PDUFA date.
