(NASDAQ: BPAX), Cell Genesys, Inc. (NASDAQ: CEGE), EPIX Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: EPIX), IDM Pharma, Inc. (NASDAQ: IDMI), La Jolla Pharmaceutical Co. (NASDAQ: LJPC), Neurogen Corporation (NASDAQ: NRGN), Northfield Laboratories Inc. (NASDAQ: NFLD) and TorreyPines Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ: TPTX) are all under strategic reviews and their futures are probably questionable at best.
