Cancer may have just met its match
A revolutionary approach to cancer fighting has the medical community buzzing. Here's how to profit.
Ever since the nation declared war on cancer, back in 1971 when President Richard Nixon signed the National Cancer Act, it's been an uphill battle. Cancer is still the second-leading cause of death in the U.S., behind heart disease.
Merrill Lynch predicts a 2015 launch for the drug, "reaching peak sales of $2 billion five years after launch, which implies a 35% share of the three markets in which nivolumab is currently in Phase III trials." (Merrill, like other firms, is not yet modeling the potential for this drug in other types of cancers that Bristol-Myers is not yet testing).
Analysts at UBS project $6 billion in annual sales, but caution that competitors are developing their own cancer immunotherapy drugs, which may cap the potential for nivolumab.
God bless a Repukelican free America!

YES - we must be prepared to die for the progress.
