This is actually an easy trade/investment...that 68 year old woman who was restaged
If after her inoperable breast cancer, treated with Synta's drug, was restaged as operable (it was) AND she survives and is given the all clear, shorts are in for a world of hurt. It will make the news, for sure. The hardest breast cancer to treat, and she might beat it.
The shorts will be hoping she has a relapse and even dies. But every single day that woman lives on, and every single day she is free from her previous cancer and death sentence, is another day where the short trade thesis loses its strength.
I will dub her Patient X. Godspeed to you Patient X.
