BOSTON ( TheStreet) -- Renton L. opens this week's Biotech Stock Mailbag: "Was there anything noteworthy in the AVI BioPharma (AVII) update announced this week? Are you still optimistic about this drug's chances; maybe the market is getting this drug all wrong?"AVI's eteplirsen is the first drug ever to significantly increase the production of dystrophin in boys with Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD). That's pretty darn remarkable, so yes, I believe there is reason for optimism.
