I must have just gotten very cynical and mean-spirited in my golden years but I don't really "get" DNDN....

The technology is kind of a miracle, yes. But $90,000 to prolong life an average of four months? Yes, I sound like a "death-panel" booster but with so many medical expenses occurring in the last x months of life, is this the right thing to do?

Never mind the company leased a mountain of space for offices and labs and, it would seem, didn't have the business to use it all.

--Grumpily,

Shuksan

PS: Maybe the point here is to work the technology to the point where it can be used much much earlier in the treatment plan for PC....
