The musical chair game last week could have been a major player shifting ownership for many reasons. The shelf stocked with poison pills scenario kinda needs tweaking.... to be continued in the next episode of...As the Stomach Churns with GERN
....well you certainly dug up the CV goods on Chippy. That guy reads like a used pharma salesman in a white polyester lab coat. So it's a buyout again.
Now for the secondary that apparently wasn't exercised recently in that 100mil share turnover game. Wonder if that had anything to do with a potential buyer? INCY must be getting antsy. Maybe the shelf is GERN's poison pill threat to stop any hostile takeovers
Humira binds to tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNFa), preventing it from activating TNF receptors; TNFa inactivation is effective in down regulating the inflammatory reactions associated with autoimmune diseases but it is also part of the immune system that protects the body from infection. Treatment with adalimumab may therefore increase the risk of infections. Obviously if you shut down this defense response one becomes prone to infections caused by bio-organisms.
Imetelstat is the first telomerase inhibitor which binds with the RNA template of telomerase, (a DNA/RNA nucleus cellular growth activity) thereby directly inhibiting telomerase activity; activity which is greatly increased in cancer cells. IMET stabilizes this activity in plasma and tissues cells, as well as significantly improves binding affinity to its cancer target. Side effects; dose-limiting toxicities which are thrombocytopenia and neutropenia. Seems to me the difference is that Imet can be regulated to levels that effectively reduce telomerase activity in targeted cancer cells yet allow normal telomerase activity to continue. A drug like Humira inactivates TNFa eliminating the body's immune response.
Hope this helps ....my biochemistry was from observations derived from beaver pond life
Yuri....he ended up penniless with a broken heart. You Joan on the other hand are more like Tanya, Yuri's embittered unloved wife or better yet the tenement comrade that runs Yuri's former Moscow city house telling everyone what they should do for the good of the collective making everyone equally miserable.
I just copied this and pasted it from Yahoo...swore they changed it from Monday earlier today

There is a possibility this company is a different animal than the one that bit you in the past. Ever hear of the ugly duckling? Well just the other day 4 black swans were videoed surfing at the beach in Kirra, one of Queensland's prime surfing beaches, when one caught a rolling wave and was carried into the surf swam out to be joined by the other 3 to catch the next wave. Who would have thought swans could surf?
it's the guys from NSA that you have to watch your back for. They keep getting those drone coordinates mixed up.
there's a Dunkin Donuts in the Court house....just pretend you're delivering a box of chocolate dipped and honey glazed for the judge. I'm sure he'll stop proceedings and then slip into one of the back rows. Keep us posted.
