Agreed - How long did it take Doctors to abandon outdated notion that 80% ulcers were caused by Stress? (search Barry James Marshall)
How long will it take Medical community to realize EDAP HIFU is the future of Prostate treatment? I say judge for yourself......from the current information from National Inst of Cancer "http://www.cancer.gov/cancertopics/treatment/prostate/understanding-prostate-cancer-treatment/page4"
From the current options "Active Surveillance, Surgery, and Radiation Therapy"....look at the survival rates of these options at lower part of page4, "Most men with early-stage prostate cancer can expect to have many healthy years ahead of them. The average age
for men to learn they have early-stage prostate cancer is 65 years. For all 3 treatments:
Nearly all men will still be alive 5 years after treatment.
86% of men will still be alive 10 years after treatment.
56% of men will still be alive 15 years after treatment"
,......so after detection & using current "FDA approved" treatment options after 15years = 56% survival rate ...go back & evaluate latest EDAP data...after 14years 90% survival rates across the board!!!
This data/outline from National Inst of Cancer also reports recovery time for each option + the approved Drugs - these cash cows for Pharma Cos. are toast! - I would making major bets that their $$$ cash flows will dwindle.
A look ahead - FDA Approval - we may only double (big deal)...took to the future, the EDAP management is spending capital on future treatments in conjunction with HIFU (Liver Cancer)....that my friend is were retirement dreams are made...see you on the other side of 30+
I guess all these major holders are all stupid too? Wells Fargo, Bank of America...the stock is at it's current price because HIFU, while not new to the world, is a new prostate cancer life saver to the majority of the US. In time this company will be worth some decent change. This technology is a a money saver to patients and insurance companies...American Drs. are not fans...it's going to take the people to get this stock going.
Allsarocky, with all due respect, what is your agenda? Why do you care about telling us how stupid we are?
