A biotech company doing incredibly vital medical work at its most crucial stage, a NEW treatment that could save HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS from blindness and ruined lives, just got hit with a huge fine. I don’t care what they did!! I don’t care if there was insider trading or whatever. DO NOT CARE. Huge corporations get away with murder, but tiny little startup ACT, operating on a shoestring, is the one that got nailed.
And come on, we all know why. They work with embryonic stem cell research, the only kind that is actually effective right now. The treatment for age-related macular degeneration could be two years away from hitting the market if they were not being undermined all the time. The studies are going great. There are absolutely no adverse reactions in patients. But because of the insistence that a stem cell= person, and apparently the people who are already born don’t count…who cares about all the old people, anyway… and ten year old children going blind from Stargaard’s disease aren’t important… ACT is being brought down. VILE AND DISGUSTING.
