    Article in the San Diego Union Tribune magazine 12/7/97 regarding
    Thalidomide.."has reemerged to treat AIDS, Leprosy and now brain cancer. Patients with malignant astrocytoma, the most common brain tumor, usually die in less than a year. Dr.Gruber of NYU Medical Center has combined chemo-therapy with thalidomide--which
    keeps the tumor from creating its own blood supply--for those who have exhausted all other treatments. "In the first two cases, the tumor was gone after six months." "We can't get on the soapbox and scream how wonderful this is, but it is a good beginning," said Dr. Gruber.
    I believe this is extreme significant news for those patients that need Thalidomide, for the company Cocensys and the shareholders!!!!!!!
