Question to Shorts and those who say Lymphoseek sucks and is of no value...
Would you really not recommend Lymphoseek as a viable option if the medical need presented itself and someone asked if you had ever heard of it? If someone said they had the unfortunate need for Lymphatic mapping and they had an option to use Lymphoseek, would you really tell them to avoid it because it sucks and has no value/use as has been stated repeatedly out here...not to mention of the evilness of the management team? Or one step further if there were a need, would you really stay silent and not mention that you knew of a viable option potentially to be used if someone else never heard of Lymphoseek?
Hopefully the need never arises for any of us, but life dictates otherwise sometimes.
Ok goes like this
Pt: doc what proof do you have this will work? , this is new and untested, i rather wait for more data . We have one shot at this and i am not a guinea pig.
Doc: of course, what we do today is good, i don t foresee you will need an axillary dissection, your tumor is small, the nodes are not palpable, the nomogram of memorial sloan kettering cancer center calculates your risk as low. No lympho seek necessary
Repeat this for the majority of pts that have today small tumors due to screening
Really? Is that how it works with cancer patients? Is that how it works with the FDA approval process? I did not know untested products make it to market, as I thought there were three phases of controlled clinical studies that took place as part of the product approval process. Thanks for the education....you are right, it is time to sell my position and take a short position. You should work on wall street, in the biotech industry, or for FDA.
Pup, the answer tells it all and puts your posts in the proper perspective. Thought you had some skills but the response that you would not use it, only reveals your lack of intellect or your purpose on this board. Fun reading however, at least from time to time
ummmm I do not recall living longer being one of the claims made by the company. I will have to look back at all the releases and information. Send along where you saw the company make the claim of living longer. I think the claims were that it was easier to use thus allowing better planning, just as accurate (if not more so), no adverse reactions, and the idea that you do not have to remove all of the lymph nodes thereby reducing the impact as a result of doing so...typically disfiguring.
Thanks in advance for sending along the info regarding the increased longevity claim.
