    more competition for opko

    Necropsy is the methodology, not the technology. I was just pointing out this totally different method that may in fact prove superior.
    The topic of the discussion is competition, - as in a company losing .08 per share vs. a couple of funded universities.
    Okay, I realize it's a big concept. If the most relevant qualification in your life is still tied to your SAT score, I suggest you stick to your bean counting ways of copying and pasting Frost's share purchases.

    • I don't know much about this stuff but when I read this excerpt it didn't sound much like and easy way to determine early diagnosis.

      "It’s long been known that dying, tau-filled cells are an early sign of Alzheimer’s disease. They first appear in the entorhinal cortex, a small area of the brain behind the ears that controls memory and navigation and form tangles. The disease then spreads to other areas of the brain."

      Maybe someone else could explain it for me.
      Do we tap the entorhinal cortex the small area of the brain behind the ears to look for these dying tau filled cells? Sounds rather risky, painful, and invasive in comparison to a simple blood test. Again I'm no brain surgeon, so this is certainly not my area of expertise. Remembering too that OPKO's study must be validated.
