    Longs Shorts and in Betweens

    Surprisingly the shorts here have a real lack of understanding of the deeper clinical issues at play. I say surprisingly because the shorts usually do their homework and a position this large should not be dismissed.

    Shorts know that ABVD is cheap and effective (90%+ cure) so they believe that there is no place in a first line setting for adcetris. What they don't understand is the huge interest in reducing the long term health effects of current treatment. The 20 year old Hodgkin patient (and there are plenty of them) will eventually become the 40 year old heart failure or pulmonary failure patient (bleomycin). These so called "late effects" are a known problem. The interest in reducing them can't be understated. If it is as effective as current standard treatment, adcetris use will explode.
