I am a shareholder in Shield Diagnostics in the U.K. There has been a lot of talk that ABT is going to make a deal with Shield re- AFT, a heart attack predictor. Is ABT in talks with them? The CEO of Shield says that ABT cannot sign the deal because the guy from ABT is away on vacation. Is this correct? I just feel Shield is not being totally open about this. Could anyone help, please? I am not asking for info. which is restricted, just for confirmation of Abbott's interest.
Just heard on the evening news that ABT has discovered a new drug 200 time more potent than morphine. This drug is from the toxic skin of a tree frog. ABT has know about the drug for years but has just now discovered how to aviod the toxic effect of it.
