    There is only one person responsible for your bad investment decision, and that is you. So please stop blaming others and suck it up and move on.

    I imagine that almost everyone that reads this board is sick and tired of your wailing, clothes rending, and ranting about something that is only your own fault for making an investment in a field you know nothing about and in which you didn't even bother to perform adequate due diligence on before plunking your money down.

    Take it like a man and move on to your next bad investment.

    It is you that is a very, very poor investor in this space. You know nothing about this industry and you obviously ignored the fact that Mirkin had a prior history of failed start-ups.

    Please go away. You have become a pestilence upon this board.

    You have previously claimed it was

    1. Others deleting your posts
    2. Yahoo deleting your posts
    3. You deleting your posts

    If it is you deleting your posts it is after someone or several people have pointed out the absurdity of them.

    What? JTR will be straightjacketed and whisked away in a padded wagon next week?

  • accurateinformation accurateinformation Nov 7, 2014 6:51 PM Flag

    JTR already admitted that his legal counsel already told him that he had no case against anyone.

    The only case he has made is against his own sanity.

    Really?

    And just how many molecular diagnostic device manufacturers has Google absorbed up until today?

    NONE!

    Please stop posting utter nonsense here in an attempt to intentionally mislead people.

    While Google did invest in 23andMe, a personalized genetics and discovery company, 23andMe is not a molecular diagnostics device manufacturer and the do not even perform ANY diagnostics testing, only genetic lineage (ancestor) testing.

    When they did try to claim they performed clinical genetics testing the FDA quickly shut that down with an enforcement letter. The company didn't do what the FDA required in the enforcement letter and received a cease and desist letter from the FDA as a result.

    That's some kind of record Google has there.

    The only one exhibiting hubris here is you if you think that anything you have dome and are doing on this board is the type of thing that either Ackman or Taxin would do. After all, all you do is post harassing and derogatory comments here, all of which are Yahoo TOS violations. Ackman would never be caught posting on a message board. He would simply take action...something you are incapable of doing.

    It is no wonder that Yahoo keeps deleting your posts and not surprising that you think someone else is deleting your posts due to their "wonderful and amazing content".

    You are a joke.

    If you truly had institutional investors backing you, you wouldn't be harassing people the way you do on this board.

    Also of note, since you say you were a millionaire, not that you are a millionaire, apparently NSPH hasn't been your only investment mistake. I guess that is why you posted that the "investment group" you were part of parted ways with you after the shares were dispersed among them.

    Sammy is right, you no nothing about the molecular diagnostics industry.

    And all of the companies you just mentioned have nothing to do with that industry, so please stop blowing smoke.

    "Know" not "no"

  • Stacie Chapman’s heart skipped when she answered the phone at home and her doctor — rather than a nurse — was on the line. More worrisome was the doctor’s gentle tone as she asked, “Where are you?”
    On that spring day in 2013, Dr. Jayme Sloan had bad news for Chapman, who was nearly three months pregnant. Her unborn child had tested positive for Edwards syndrome, a genetic condition associated with severe birth defects. If her baby — a boy, the screening test had shown — was born alive, he probably would not live long.

    Sloan explained that the test — MaterniT21 PLUS — has a 99 percent detection rate. Though Sloan offered additional testing to confirm the result, a distraught Chapman said she wanted to terminate the pregnancy immediately.

    What she — and the doctor — did not understand, Chapman’s medical records indicate, was that there was a good chance her screening result was wrong. There is, it turns out, a huge and crucial difference between a test that can detect a potential problem and one reliable enough to diagnose a life-threatening condition for certain. The screening test only does the first.

    But a three-month examination by the New England Center for Investigative Reporting has found that companies are overselling the accuracy of their tests and doing little to educate expecting parents or their doctors about the significant risks of false alarms.

    Two recent industry-funded studies show that test results indicating a fetus is at high risk for a chromosomal condition can be a false alarm half of the time. And the rate of false alarms goes up the more rare the condition, such as Trisomy 13, which almost always causes death.

    Companies selling the most popular of these screens do not make it clear enough to patients and doctors that the results of their tests are not reliable enough to make a diagnosis.

    California-based Sequenom Inc., for instance, promises on its web page that its MaterniT21 blood test provides “simple, clear results.” Only far down below does Sequenom disclose that “no test is perfect” and that theirs can produce erroneous results “in rare cases.”

    Now, evidence is building that some women are terminating pregnancies based on the screening tests alone.

    And at Stanford University, there have been at least three cases of women aborting healthy fetuses that had received a high-risk screen result.

    “The worry is women are terminating without really knowing if [the initial test result] is true or not,” said Athena Cherry, professor of pathology at the Stanford University School of Medicine, whose lab examined the cells of the healthy aborted fetuses.
