    LARGE CO.can do it better-MYTH---- Small co.do far better.

    AJAX--you are right that Biotech.co are doing most of the innovations.But failure rate of Biotech.is high also because of Risks. DNDN,SVNT are one of those co.
    GILD,MDVN ,REGN are the success stories.

    • Not exactly: Most Biotech failures, 95% are due to safety issues in late stage clinical trials.
      That said, I was short DNDN. HGSI, and SVNT. The reasoning was that all three products were flawed. Marketing a new drug regardless of the exciting benefits of Vascepa, is the
      most difficult task. A non vertically integrated Biotch Co. launching a new drug.for the first
      time is the most challenging of all potential pitfalls.

      Sentiment: Strong Buy

        I enjoy reading your posts .
        I would just pt out that Vascepa has to be one of the safest drugs ever to launch.
        There appear to be no safety issues other then if the person is allergic to fish or has a bleeding issue.
        In addition ...it's going thru the door opened by Lovaza. Those that I know that prescribe drugs look at Vascepa and say " ok it's Lovaza WITHOUT the LDL cholesterol problem .....it won't hurt you , may help you "
        Now we know it's more then that but that's the quick take away from those I know who prescribe drugs .
        In addition there is a huge unmet medical need ....so I would like to know why you think Vascepa
        may be a difficult launch .....I think the opposite
        Akanz

        Sentiment: Buy
