    The Geron vs. Incyte wars...

    Posted this with a link to an article explaining it on Facebook, this is my Facebook post: "This is what is kind of "ugly" on the Wall Street "Cancer Wars." You all know I am invested in Geron which has the only drug that has ever been shown to cause remission in the type of blood cancer it is battling. Meanwhile, Incyte Corporation has been around for a while, they're already got an approved drug that improves the cancer symptoms in people who have the cancer, but can't do squat to cure it. In an ideal world, this would be a double victory, one research effort is finding a cure, the other is helping the symptoms. But under capitalism, this all just sucks. Everyone is framing this up as Geron vs. Incyte and it's all about, "Who will win?" "Will it be Geron's drug that appears to be delivering a cure to some people, or will it be Incyte that delivers relief?" I honestly HATE this, but this is the big debate we're in. I honestly say, that maybe there's a bit of mutual room here because although Geron is pretty impressive with Imetelsat, we're not close to 100% cures and while Incyte has impressive symptom relief, they've never cured a person. I just don't like how it's a battle between the two companies on Wall Street rather than a story on how both companies have both made breakthroughs and people suffering from the disease are going to win on two fronts..."
