t’s been around since the 60’s, and it modulates the immune system by down-regulating Rnase L via cells’ toll-like receptors. Initial studies for Ampligen used very strict criteria and recruited only the most impaired patients from the top CFS physicians around the country – a group that typically doesn’t respond at all to any treatment
Been around since the 60's...but never approved.

Hence my problem with management. Carter's been running that company as his personal bank account for decades with nothing to show for it, but a bunch of diluted (and deluded?) shareholders.

So, to sum:
1) poorly-defined disease
2) a "treatment" that's been around for (almost) ever with no real clinical record of success
3) self-dealing management

sounds like a short to me, but it's only a buck stock so I'll just let it die.
