realtruf....you ARE wrong, and a liar, and i will now put you on 'ignore'.
Biotimes hES cells are fully sequenced, GMP grade, animal free cell lines. And yes we have patented hundreds of them. It's kinda like 'mapping the embryome'. Oh and btw, Biotimes PrueStem cell lines are clonally derived and don't form tumors.
An extensive patent portfolio doesn't necessarily mean a the company will be successful. But with that said i am keeping quite a large % of my high risk with BTX because:
A:Dr. West is a legend in the field and i think has the vision
B:Cancer diagnostic product looks industry leading and is low hanging fruit for BTX
C:BTX has many promising products in multiple therapeutic fields plus the most popular research engine(LifeMap/GeneCards) on the net along with research products using the 'Gold Standard' embryonic stem cells.
Final touches being put on cancer diagnostics, ie a whole slew of new gene markers. Mammogram diagnostic up first then other cancer trials soon after. Should have a pretty good idea of who the players/partners are when the announcements are made.
