Ajohn32, What has gotten in to you? I thought you had some good perspectives... If you had $ 4 billion on your balance sheet , still, will you throw away $80 million for nothing or just on "promise" that some day I will give you back $300 million? Remember Deerfield IS investing $80 million. They are investing with "calculated" risk. They are not making a blind bet on poker table. There is a reason why Deerfield is not giving $80 million to any one and every one and instead gave to MNKD.
