    Lay off of 351 people...frees up cash, gets ride of non-cf staff...hhhmmmm

    I could see Vertex CF partnership or acquisition in the near future. I think investors would like this move, as long as it doesn't make Kalydeco, 809, 661, etc...look bad. Any partnership must be perceived as a compliment to their CF program. That Vertex is attacking CF from multiple fronts...really marking their territory in CF. Thoughts?

      They are eliminating their sales force (translate network of relationships) for Incivek... the same sales force / network they need to be competitive with VX-135. Translate another 150 million in ramp up costs just to get 135 off the ground. And where do you think those people are going be? Because I heard Gilead is hiring...
