Cancer varies a lot, I can't begin to list the different stains or suspected causes. I've lost a couple of close relatives to the disease. Anything that will stop any variety will help. I hopr the SELCIDS are safe, but without years of animal testing, especially pregnant animals, how we anyone know. At least the effect of Thalomid is know and it could be used a lot sooner for some.
This company is on the right track. But nothing is overnight. It would be nice to see some more positive news right now. I wonder whats holding up the FDA since they gave a preliminary approval for use against leprosy.
Do you hate all biotechs or just CGEN? You rant about how dangerous Thalodide is, but just about every biotech out there is working on some form of anti-angiogenesis drug to treat cancer. These new compounds are going to be much more potent than old thalidomide was, but by their very nature just as dangerous if taken by pregnant women. Are you waging a vendetta against all these other companies, or is your gripe solely with CGEN and Thalidomide?
Im not 100% certain, but i think that the newer anti-angiogenesis drugs ( and Celgene is also working on a few) do not have the same possible side-effects which could occur with Thalidomide. However, the dispensing of Thalidomide is going to be stricty administered by Celgene. Its not the same story as it was in the past, as FDA and Snoopy cant seem to or dont care to even try to comprehend.
Hey guys (FDA & Snoopy the Dog), unless your short, which you probably are, why do you take up our time. We are on this board to learn from each other and help each other make money. You boys need to either get a job or take up a hobby and let the educated post on this board.!
