The person on Motley Fool is one for sure. Ask him to explain Antisense technology .
This was no dark surprise, however, I didn't expect the failure so early in clinical usually antisense can string it along further in the trials. Some smart Ph.D knew enough to cut bait & leave to save millions upon millions.
Remember, with antisense 20% of the disease gets through to roam... wished it wasn't true. : ( Then up pops toxicity... bad stuff.
BTW, I love the panic in Vical that hedgies put on hedgies. This is fun stuff... hang in there folks ! Chortle. : )
