They said the results were basically astounding. That tells me that this trial may be more successful than many of the other trials they are conducting. It still sounds like there is no silver bullet when it comes to treating aggressive brain cancer. A friend of mine was treated at MD Anderson for aggressive brain cancer, and he died within 7 months. He had surgery and state of art treatment, but he still passed very quickly.
You have to wonder why it took shorts so long to try to stop the bleeding.
That's why I wrote,"...when combined with traditional treatments." The Duke press release said the tetanus shot supercharged the immune system, which better enabled the medications and the patient's own immune system to fight the cancer. By itself, the tetanus shot is good for preventing tetanus not brain cancer. However, the Duke researchers thought outside the box and apparently have found a cheap, readily available tool that may prove highly effective in helping patients survive brain cancer.
Nice summary. Thanks. I find their treatment to prevent cardiac remodeling after a heart attack to be very interesting. If they can get this approved, it will revolutionize the way doctors treat people who have survived heart attacks. I imagine that most large pharmas would pay a nice price for BLRX if they think they are really on to something. Good luck!
give OPK a nice pop this Monday. With presentations being made late today and tomorrow, Monday's newswires should report updated info. that should be very positive. IMHO.
I would imagine that they will report how using a simple tetanus shot to treat brain cancer patients helps super energize the patient's immune system when combined with traditional treatments. Amazing how such a cheap and available treatment could revolutionize how we treat people with brain cancer.
Kansas Rep. Tim Huelskamp admitted he has signed up with ObamaCare even though he has repeatedly condemned the Affordable Healthcare Plan. He is not mandated by law to participate, and he could have bought his insurance on the open market, but he just couldn't pass up the government subsidy. So much for principles. A few dollars evidently is all it take to get these tea party types to quietly participate in a plan they constantly condemn.
I don't know what the $ potential will be, but the fact that BRLX claims they can achieve a desired result in just one procedure is great for patients, doctors, and insurance companies. Why would anyone want to undergo multiple procedures when one would be just as effective. IMHO. I also like the fact that Novartis has taken a stake in the company. How often can we buy a company for so cheap after a pharma giant like Novartis has validated their science and strategy. Good luck!
I thought Teddy would need at least a few days to embarrass himself after he announced his run for president. It appears he only needed a few hours.
