for educational purposes only and is not investment advice
lot of stuff going on in ai, biotech and health sciences

this is a potentially much larger deal than it may seem

about twelve minutes or so and this analyst lays it out pretty well

around the 6 min mark you'll get the idea and applications

Humans Have Salamander-Like Ability to Regrow Cartilage in Joints

Process could be harnessed as a treatment for osteoarthritis 

 
Inflamed hip joint

Contrary to popular belief, cartilage in human joints can repair itself through a process similar to that used by creatures such as salamanders and zebrafish to regenerate limbs, researchers at Duke Health found.

Publishing online Oct. 9 in the journal Science Advances, the researchers identified a mechanism for cartilage repair that appears to be more robust in ankle joints and less so in hips. The finding could potentially lead to treatments for osteoarthritis, the most common joint disorder in the world.

Investor ROI doesn't grow on trees you know.

If you don't increase revenue faster than costs, how would you ever make more money?

 

I think you are trying to be funny rgio but that is actually not how markets work.   Risk-adjusted ROI does not evolve that radically over time.

But who cares?  Almost of voting American adults just voted for a guy who clearly has his own unique personal view on how markets work.   Is it not fascinating that just shy of 50% of voting American adults just voted for Marxist Keynesianism?  

Besides that, Trump had 4 years to replace Obama Care and finally decided that the status quo was acceptable.

This is just one more example of private equity firms gutting businesses. ToysRUs is another: a perfectly good company brought down by a rapacious PE firm. They do not add value - in fact they extract it. They do not create jobs - they create unemployment. They do not serve the community, local or otherwise - they exist to serve a handful of obscenely wealthy people.
I still do not understand how these transactions can be legal. They are certainly immoral.

The health care scare
I sold Americans a lie about Canadian medicine. Now we’re paying the price.
(...) The most effective myth we perpetuated — the industry trots it out whenever major reform is proposed — is that Canadians and people in other single-payer countries have to endure long waits for needed care. Just last year, in a statement submitted to a congressional committee for a hearing on the Medicare for All Act of 2019, AHIP maintained that “patients would pay more to wait longer for worse care” under a single-payer system.

While it’s true that Canadians sometimes have to wait weeks or months for elective procedures (knee replacements are often cited), the truth is that they do not have to wait at all for the vast majority of medical services. And, contrary to another myth I used to peddle — that Canadian doctors are flocking to the United States — there are more doctors per 1,000 people in Canada than here. Canadians see their doctors an average of 6.8 times a year, compared with just four times a year in this country. (...)

Interesting role on the brain/vagal nerve connection to health and chronic inflammation:

One nerve connects your vital organs, sensing and shaping your health. If we learn to control it, the future of medicine will be electric.

Tres Biggs went to jail for failing to appear in court for unpaid medical bills. He described it as "scary."

"I was scared to death," Tres Biggs said. "I'm a country kid — I had to strip down, get hosed and put a jumpsuit on.

When a DNA Test Says You’re a Younger Man, Who Lives 5,000 Miles Away
After a bone marrow transplant, a man with leukemia found that his donor’s DNA traveled to unexpected parts of his body. A crime lab is now studying the case.
But four years after his lifesaving procedure, it was not only Mr. Long’s blood that was affected. Swabs of his lips and cheeks contained his DNA — but also that of his donor. Even more surprising to Mr. Long and other colleagues at the crime lab, all of the DNA in his semen belonged to his donor. “I thought that it was pretty incredible that I can disappear and someone else can appear,” he said.

Mr. Long had become a chimera, the technical term for the rare person with two sets of DNA. The word takes its name from a fire-breathing creature in Greek mythology composed of lion, goat and serpent parts. Doctors and forensic scientists have long known that certain medical procedures turn people into chimeras, but where exactly a donor’s DNA shows up — beyond blood — has rarely been studied with criminal applications in mind.

Millions in U.S. Lost Someone Who Couldn't Afford Treatment
More than 13% of American adults — or about 34 million people — report knowing of at least one friend or family member in the past five years who died after not receiving needed medical treatment because they were unable to pay for it, based on a new study by Gallup and West Health. Nonwhites, those in lower-income households, those younger than 45, and political independents and Democrats are all more likely to know someone who has died under these circumstances.
