    • i is too bad that rumors spread by the uneducated and angry may actually hurt a fine company like celgene. it has
      a bright future and should be a fine growth stock for the future. Thalidomide will be approved and will have a large market;
      as it is effective for wasting symptoms of cancer and aids (cachexia) (among other ailments). i am in healthcare (rx) and see
      only a bright future and will maintain my positon. do some research and read newsweek, time and the new york times in the past
      few months and calm down. claiming that chiral molecules are the same and useless is like saying your right and left hand are
      the same; they are not. they are mirror images and are not superimposible on one another. each has a different physiological
      effect, thus, it is a clear advantage to have optically pure molecules for various substances including ritalin (which is an
      nonamphetamine central nervous stimulant: methylphenidate). do your homework before spreading the b.s.

      keep up the positive posting

      • First of all, I did not claim that chiral molecules are the "same and useless," I said that a chiral drug has never been
        shown to be more effective than a non-chiral drug for the same purpose. They HAVE NEVER been proven to have differing
        physiological effects. This is key to Celgene's BS. Yes, Ritalin IS NOT classified as an amphetamine, it differs in structure from
        amphetamine just enough to be classified as a non-amphetamine and for all practical purposes has the same effects as amphetamine. What I
        said was: Ritalin was discovered by accident; by a person performing modifications to an amphetamine molecule! I suggest that you
        do YOUR homework before spreading the bullshit. You should definitely stick to simply COUNTING pills!

    • Exactly right.
