If and when our RPE program becomes available in the market place. Certainly it will erupt a whole new firestorm of controversy regarding payment.Let's take a look at AMD for example. Most afflicted are of Medicare age. Besides the question of cost to care for these patients without the procedure vs the procedure. The political backlash of funding is an issue regardless. It will basically be available only to the ultra-rich IMO. Sure these things will shake out over TIME. But I for one frankly have heard a 30 billion dollar market one too many times.
pops on breakthroughs could happen at anytime. However, if you are waiting to make a buck on profit your hair will gray as if you just finished a four year presidential term. In which time one can only expect what one has come to know which is dilution and law suits.
surely the 30 B pool will be narrowed as well by those whose Bruch's integrety has been comprimised greatly.
They have shown that they can raise capital, Ha yeah we know
Medicare is covering for 3 a shot to extend life for 3 months, for Dendrion. This shot will likely prevent blindness and innumberable costs. I doubt there will be an issue of coverage. In fact, insurance companies and government, in my opinion, will be lining up to get this early, to save themselves a bundle, no matter what the cost up front. But a reasonable cost would generate MANY MANY billions of dollars in revenue.
really bio? no chance it would be interpreted by Right to life akin to abortion? certainly I don't agree but that battle will certainly happen.
lets say the battle is won, doling out treatment;s little by little saves capital for big money insurance as geezer gak from other afflictions, rathering then chunkin out change for an old dude only to have him keel over from a heart attck
