The combination of PD-1 technology and provenge would be powerful to say the least. BMY probably realizes this better than anybody.This could be revolutionary as a cancer treatment. It gets my vote.
The ONLY treatment in ALL medical science,to my knowledge,for ANY illness that improves over time.This is truly an amazing result. Conceptually a miracle drug and technology that could and should be applied to other conditions.What would that mean to humanity?What would that mean to healthcare costs?What would that mean to the price of the stock of the company that owns this technology? To me it's that simple.
Imo,These latest reports change the whole tone of this treatment. Instead of the effect waning with time as with other drug treatments, with Provenge it actually improves with time. This is HUGE and revolutionary.Keep in mind that with most vaccinations you need a periodic booster shot. But not with Provenge, It Improves and widens in its positive effect and could even show positive response on other cancers without altering or tailoring the drug.I repeat, in the scientific community this is unknown and unheard. This is HUGE. Watch the increased interest as more details emerge. I believe this could be the biggest single improvement in the treatment of cancer ever. Time will tell. Just remember where you heard it first.
You are the one who is dense? Just saying. New studies and clinical trials are first NOW start exhibiting the full extent of the benefits of the treatment that was not known by physicians and BP earlier. IMO as other studies advance tree will be even more.
There is a learning process even for physicians and BP before they become comfortable with new concepts and treatments. I believe Blackrock understands this,but they are smarter than most
News today.Pay attention to it.Provenge has an increasing benefit over time and also has an effect on some other cancers.This is the most positive effect I have ever heard on ANY cancer drug treatment.What it indicates to me is that this type of treatment,be it provenge,or some related product is going to be the preferred cancer treatment down the road.Training your own immune system,with a personalized response will prove to be the most effective way to treat a wide range of cancers as well as other conditions.
It's always nice to see that there are others that really understand the situation.Well said Gold.
