Bernie Sanders / Elizabeth Warren 2016!!
Pray in one hand Kendrisa in the other...for efficacy? one piles up & both stink.
@rebecca herbs - smoking or eating too many herbs Rebecca...in lieu of work however, it's a lovely career, if you can afford it.
Are you sure you're spelling your moniker correctly? At least Yahoo spelled your adjective correctly...alas, neither are pronounceable.
Relative to what there is to know, our collective species knows almost nothing as well, so I'm in good company as long as I avoid church socials, teaparties and tractor pulls. I'm a foolish old man but I remain curious...and hopefully curiosity will lead us to truths...but for truth we need the perspective of others...therefore,
Thanks for answering my questions...and don't forget to take your meds.
Thanks for the civil reply, what? My post upset some folks...not my intent; nor was it my intent to disrespect Jett nor the McSherry family...whom, as you surmised, I don't know at all except as they are mentioned on this board and through my very limited observation already covered. I've been on the long side of SRPT long before we became known as Sarepta. Regardless the defensive upset caused, I am happy to be informed that Etep has nothing to do with the weight issue. Thanks again...
Oh my red...somehow I sense you're on steroids and maybe testosterone boosters as well. You don't have a clue...I've been long Avi before you could spell it...so calm yourself and your shaky hands and bone up on somethng besides your thick skull...like, say, grammar and spelling... and remember, "even the fool, when he holds his peace, is counted wise"....shhhh be still.
That's no rat...not by a long shot...open your eyes and pull your nose out of the beaver...and please...don't give me TOO much credit for knowing TOO much here...just happen to know more than you apparently.
Thank you for your reply Easy. I am happy to hear that Sarepta has accepted Jett in their trials even though he is likely not a statistical plus for them.
Do you know if corticosteroids are always part of the DMD regimen? Does the steroid regimen typically continue after Etep treatment begins?
I am happy that SRPT and my holdings there are coming back ... and that they hopefully are on the way to where they perhaps ought to be...$100+. More important, I am an investor here because I have known a DMD victim, now deceased, and believed that Avi had promise of an answer to this horrible disease.
That said, I have just seen a picture of Christine and son, Jett, posted with an article on line. Concerns that immediately came to mind are : (1) How does Jett get up and walk at all, let alone make it through a 6 minute walk test, given his morbid obesity? (2) Does Etep and/or any other medications that Jett may be taking have anything to do with this obesity which is not evident in his mother? (3) Is the obesity is a common side effect of Etep? ...and if so, what would be the advantage to live to be a 600 lb. person?
I'd appreciate any informed comments on these concerns from longs here.
Shrekli is an arrogant thief and a liar...long overdue for his destiny: A remote landfill or nuclear waste site...
Red - Ouch...hands so important in that game....my old ones giving me fits as well - but staying away from the knife on advise from now deceased dad: "fond of lawyers - little wealth; fond of doctors - little health." Keep your spirits up and head down and have some good rounds next week.
I suspect that if 'they' arrive at a clinic in a spaceship, making 'them' far more advanced scientifically than we...they will know better than to give their children poison - and a different kind of death as an option to the life and death that DMD offers.
I hope you're enjoying life and shooting your age or better...
Red - I have great respect for your knowledge and your scientific knowledge...Can you be a bit more specific and clear? " technology sucks" really doesn't convey anything more than a personal prejudice to most people I think. Thanks.
...more of a corruption theory, really. A plausible one I think, given that the FDA has little other reason to give poison the green light and delay approval on real help for these children. Get a grip??? Maybe on your scrawny neck...if the margins don't get you first.
I wonder...does BMRN pay off ALL influential FDA employees? Are the payoffs equal or do some more zealous/influential FDA people get more money? Did BMRN lobby the Supreme Right for Citizens United? Can big money buy anything and everyone?
There is corruption and evil afoot at the FDA...how many children die as a result? When will one of the lesser-paid there publically whine about the inequality of graft?
Neither up nor down if you'd like to see the SEC put him in jail for 100 years.
