Well....you indicated with regard to the patents, " I would guess that tngn patents are surrounding the manufacturing process but can't be sure. They were probably filed as of the work that has been done by the company over the past few years."
I would GUESS that to, but was hoping for more than a guess. The reality is, if someone else, like J&J, recruits the good Dr., his work will go with him. They can extend, write around, or license, if they need to. How interested are you in TNGN without the Dr.? Answer to that question helps value the patents and the fact that they could be licensed reasonable if needed.
I'm not your enemy, I have a significt position and just don't like this unknown. Something doesn't feel right with regard to what is going on and I can't put my finger on it.
