This is an old story. This marks a new chapter in the CCS. We will now make it our mission to explain why this (RNAi) happened and how it will end. We have learned much from gene therapy and the demise of hundreds of biotech companies. Tens of billions of dollars are gone but there is something to be learned.

Just for fun, we start with a Harvard PhD who is fired from MIT after a rather successful beginning to his career. As you read about this story please think about the environment that make it possible. Harvard? MIT!!! But... but... PhDs? 461 citations. But there was a Nobel prize awarded for the RNAi story. Why would anyone in such a world have to cheat?

One Flame Out, One Flame Close Behind

Nastech is no more. Therapeutics will be done soon as well. Notice the name change at Nastech however. Cell Therapeutics may do the same thing. There is much to learn from companies like these who promise the cures. They take until they can no longer get away with it. Then they change their names and go back for more.
