Hey Applefoot

Can I ask, since you said you were "up with" NVGN' ideas, what you make of this $5M+ purchase from Genentec of the Brain Tumor alkylating agent.

My concern is that the $20M bank account is burning a hole in the CEO's pocket. So he spends. Genentech would never part with a useful drug; $5M is about what you'd expect to pay for a useless one.

Novogen shows the Genentech data that - at appalling quality of life - survival is prolonged a few weeks.

My question is: do they think that used with one of their other agents, it might be useful. Remember, a clinical trial would wipe out all their Cash, so it would have to be good.

Any views appreciated
