Scancell - £8m fundraise at 12p. A bargain?

My old (and terrible) tip from the 2015 New Year of AIM-listed Scancell (SCLP) has announced a placing.

Now we have an EIS-qualifying open offer on the table alongside a placing, with some detail of plans going forward. Still holding my shares, the question is what to do?
