For the last time, It is LAR or internally called EQW.....NOT LARS. In addition, there could never be too much advance press for the first weekly, and most effective diabetes treatment in history. And yes it is coming from a little San Diego biotech called Amylin. BTW, Lars was the husband of Phyllis on the Mary Tyler Moore Show. He was a dentist, and sadly a disloyal husband. This was hard on their daughter Beth, who I had a crush on in the early 70s. Despite the constant rumors the legendary Kiss ballad 'Beth' was not written for her.
