Doubt if Elan is thinking along these lines nowdays- they are more likely to circle the wagon. PFE has a full plate and unlikely but possible. Think however, Aventis, Novartis, or yes BMY. The first two are already entering into partnerships withsmall companies, and the later is getting desparate. Be curious to see if this price trend continues. While in absolute terms the volume is aaaanemic, for this stock it is quite remarkable today.
