DNR anything but the tweet, but how would there be thousands of insurance claims about an arthritis drug reducing Alzheimer's by a certain percentage? What is the process here?

Also DNR anything but that tweet, but that seems like more of a problem with FDA policy leading to perverse incentives.

Pfizer not moving on this doesn't mean they're shitty, they just made a bad bet because they purged development of therapeutics for Alzheimer's and Parkinson's around 18 months ago. If Pfizer was smart, they'd license it out to another pharma because FDA-approved drugs that get repurposed are typically fast-tracked because the DMPK, ADME and tox work is already done. If not, another pharma will likely make a crap-ton of analogs and get around the Pfizer patent pretty quickly.

This pharma thread is sad, we are dragging big pharma all over the board, but the master thread is hurting. Let's see if Katie Porter can give us some life.

btw, i've told you this before, but it is very tiresome that you continually suggest that i'm trolling when i post something you disagree with.  i sometimes write something as a joke, irony, sarcasm, what have you.  i think it's usually pretty obvious.  i do not troll.  i have almost no interest in soliciting responses to my posts.

you should really just accept that we have different opinions on some subjects.

I don't think you're trolling because you disagree with me, I think you're trolling because I'm attempting to give you credit for not sounding like a rough ridin' lunatic. You called that woman trash and a piece of crap not because she did anything harmful or offensive to another human being but because she has a different viewpoint on how to grow the economy of the country. You started this rant because she had the audacity to tell a pharma executive that his bonuses shouldn't be directly tied to increasing the cost of cancer medication.

I'm assuming you're trolling because presumably people here, that I know, also know you personally and don't think you're a despicable, intolerant sack of crap who would call a stranger trash and a piece of crap based on such flimsy reasoning. Just like I assumed you aren't a rough ridin' abhorrent human being who spent three years being serious calling people nazis because of they like a college basketball team.

If you want me and I suppose everyone else to take you seriously when you're behaving like a rough ridin' psychopath, I certainly will. I'd like to think the people I know who know you, and the same people who presumably also aren't taking you seriously when sound like an unhinged lunatic are a better judge of character than to think you are serious when you do this stupid crap.

He hates boarder control too. Which to me seems complex, but he feels that everyone should be let in, with no questions asked. No negative consequences at all...

my political views are pretty run of the mill pro-business liberal with a few idiosyncrasies.

What is pro business by allowing a bunch of undocumented immigrants in to run wild and take citizens jobs away?

We have enough struggling citizens as is. I don’t know why this is such an issue with some in the US. People who wanted to leave the US for Canada after 2016 found out real quick they’re stricter than us and whiter than us, but somehow the libs feel like it’s a safe haven from the US. I think the last debate should wake ppl up a bit. Both parties suck, we have dudes in their 80’s running the show, and none of them can actually relate with what we’re dealing with these days. It’s seriously embarrassing.
