    Todays Boston Globe page A7, great article ( here synopsis )

    I own no Aria stock but the company is talked about in the Boston area were I live and after its large drop it made lots of local news so I started following it.

    Todays Boston Globe page A7 has a great article pro Iclusig and how it has kept many people alive and that people on it now should stay on it at a cost of $115,000 per year. They interviewed some people and they all said they would not be here if it wasn't for this drug. The drug works!!!

    The main point of the article is there was a letter writing campaign by both patients and some of the most important cancer dr's including the head of Dana Farber Cancer Hosptial (one if not the best in the world )to try to persuade the FDA to allow the drug to still be sold and also use it with labelling change.

    I will look for an electronic copy of the article and post it or you may try Googling.

    I will be buying a starter position , when patients say the drug works and there is really nothing else there will be pressure on the fda to come up with a deal and make the drug available.

    The risk reward is very good 300 to 400 up side vs 50% downside.
