TG Therapeutics announces positive results for Multiple Sclerosis drug Ublituximab
"The next company. I wanna to talk about is t g therapeutics ticker symbol. Tgt ex and they're now trading in a market cap of five point five billion dollars and we heard some news at ashley and then we heard a huge readout. Come out on thursday or friday. I believe of this past week on their. Ms data so very exciting stuff and what. They showed us at ashes. That umbrella said plus tax which is their molecule combination. Which they call you to. They showed that. It's superior to open new tuesday mab. Plus chlorine useful in patients with treatment naive and relapsed and refractory chronic lymphocytic leukemia and they presented their full data set from the face three unity. Cll study and this is a follow onto the top line data that they showed in q. Two twenty twenty. So i'm just gonna blow up the data here and the the data they saw and i'm just took the most important headline that i thought. Is that the hazard gratiot from patients that receive youtube versus. Oh plus h l was zero point five four six so what that means is that they have the risk of not maintaining progression free survival in patients that took you to which is a huge improvement in response from the standard of care. So this is great news for the company. it's really the the best kind of outcome you could expect from a follow on data released to the top line data so i think this is absolutely going to allow them to get approval. Nc l. l. And if we go back to our non-hodgkin's lymphoma list here. This is an indolent non hodgkin's lymphoma and they or they're planning to submit the be. La for this molecule and to the fda soon
ASH 2020 Update
"So. I'm excited we back and we have a lot to get into and the reason for this is that we heard a number of from the american society for hematology conference. That just took place a couple of weeks ago. So we're going to talk about updates from trillium therapeutics tgi therapeutics actinium. Pharma and i wanna do a little bit of a follow on to my video about anna back with regards to their parkinson's disease data so we're going to touch on all of this stuff and Overall is a pretty interesting conference from some of the data. Updates that i saw of course i'm just going to focus on the companies that i'm interested in but then i'm gonna follow it up with a few other updates that we saw that led to huge increases in in their stock price. So have a lot to get into. So i'm just going to get right into it. And i think before we talk about the company's specifically i did just wanna talk a little bit about non-hodgkin's lymphoma and the reason for this is that to companies trillium in focus a lot on this disease and i just want everybody to be up to speed. So i've talked about non-hodgkin's lymphoma in the past. And i showed like a version of this slide. But i've included a few like prices of previously approved drugs for these diseases just so that we all have a bit more context on what we can expect in terms of a proper valuation for the companies. So just we all understand. Non-hodgkin's lymphoma characterizes a group of malignant lymphocytes cancers. These are known as he malignancies and lymphocytes as we know at their b or t cells and these are part of the adaptive immune system. They collect mutations such that they can grow and then deposit in different areas of your body leading to non lymphoma so they're characterized based on where the lymphocytes and of depositing also whether or not they're indolent or aggressive so the inland version are very slow growing. And they're not always emergency such that they don't need to be treated necessarily immediately but they need to be monitored so the decision to treat with any of the different treatments that event lined here is really up to the doctor themself. Now when it comes to aggressive versions of non hodgkin's lymphoma there's obviously more of a drive to treat and to get rid of this cancer because it's leading to significant side effects on the patient so just to give a little bit more context here the prevalence of non hodgkin's lymphoma and this is the all of them. So i'm just including all of them in this calculation it's around twenty cases per one hundred thousand adults and this is around seventy seven thousand patients in the usa per year so it's a significant patient population treatments out there. That exist are pretty numerous. Though so there's chemotherapies immune therapies targeted therapies. And then i also put radiation stem cell transplants. And then just to give a little bit of a description on the different one. So for indolent non hodgkin's lymphoma. Cdl small lymphocytic leukemia lymphoma marginal zone. Lymphoma cutaneous t. cell lymphoma so that would be on the skin now. All of these cancers have been aggressive version. So if the indolent version gets more aggressive it would turn into these types of cancers that include p tcl deal mantle cell lymphoma or burkitt lymphoma. So keep all that in mind. And i did just wanna put here. So i'm showing a chart from various corporate presentation on Talk about them but just to sort of frame What we can expect in terms of objective response rate of what we want some of the approved drugs already. They hit ours in the range of twenty to thirty percent and then the drugs that verizon was looking at they did a little bit better. But when we're looking at whether or not therapy is is good or bad. You need a reference to compare it to so depending on where they are in terms of the line of treatment. They're looking at and the mechanism of action in the side effects. If they can garner in objective response rate of twenty thirty percent in general that is seen as decent or approvable at least for the fda now it comes to price this is also pretty critical because when we're looking at understanding the total value or potential value of a company. We really have to look at the potential addressable market so drugs that have originally like longtime ago been approved for different types of non hodgkin's lymphoma reduction was one of the original ones and right now it's approved for first line non-hodgkin's lymphoma and i didn't get into the details because they do specific indications but generally a course of this treatment for four months costs around thirty nine thousand dollars so that's kind of the the floor and then there's another one here that's approved for second line or greater see. Tcl cost around twenty nine thousand per month in this zelina but then this can go all the way up to. Yes carta which is approved for third-liner deal as a gilead drug and the cost for that is three hundred seventy three thousand dollars per treatment course so there's a big range and the total addressable market for the entirety of non hodgkin's lymphoma is around three point two billion dollars. So you have to think of all of the approved therapies that are out there and if companies are going to try and get drugs on the market you know how much of that three point two billion are. They going to be able to get for their specific drug.

Let's let's about your story, and if you would tell us in ten minutes or less, you drink how long it was a problem and why you decided to stop High School I. Think I. I didn't drink a lot. I drank little bit It wasn't a big part of my life very much into sports, student, government and right between high school and college. I just out of nowhere. came down with a non Hodgkin's lymphoma and is very surprising to me. traumatic obviously, and I checked into hospital had wonderful doctors in went through chemotherapy at I, was very fortunate to. Be Able to go to college a semester late and come out in full recovery, but I think things kind of change for me there and when I did get to college, I started to drink pretty frequently and I would say that was like the point when. I started to drink a law you know throughout college pretty consistent. In then I graduated moved to Manhattan, and I had a job in banking, and I was trying to Ford my rent so I had a side hustle in Bayliss. Promotions, which again weeds bit more drinking within two years, I had the nightlife promotions business was actually producing more income from you than my job, so I left my job and I went into that industry time for about eight years, and that was eight years more shrinking, and towards the end I met my wife, and I wanted to kind of have a career change and I knew if I wanted to have a family and it was pretty clear she wanted. To Change? In order to have a family I did eventually I was thought. Hey, you know this is probably circumstantial. It'll go away, but I ended up moving into technology, which is eventually where I wanted to be I wasn't a simple transition, but I got there and the drinking go away, just kind of morphed in I from there was. A trigger drinker I wasn't drinking. Galley I didn't have cravings. I never thought about drinking but I'd hit a trigger. You know out with friends out to dinner on vacation and say I'm GonNa have one or two drinks. Inevitably, it was countless number of drinks, and that was my challenge.

"This week we're gonNA talk about some updates from Lasko. Twenty twenty and then I'm going to focus on either as well as another company called, carry farm, so we're doing a little bit of a cancer focus on the show with this episode last episode. And yet should be should be a pretty good show, so I hope you're keeping safe and everything's going well for everyone. I know that the US in particular has been dealing with a lot right now. Not GonNa get too much into that, but I'm GONNA touch on it for the sake of the market, but. With Dell, let's get right into it. So the first thing I want to talk about is some news from Moscow. And one company in particular that I hadn't mentioned, but they seem to be. One of the bigger winners is adapt therapeutics ticker symbol ad, and they showed phase one trial data of ADP A to m four where fifty percents of patients with Sino you'll. Sarcoma exhibited partial responses. Now they also showed some data in believe lung, cancer, neck, and head cancer, and then also with melanoma, and a lot of these patients had responses so I think it's not only due to the soil sarcoma data, but for a lot of solid tumors they show that they're molecules able to lead to some kind of response, and the shares traded wildly high on this news up one hundred twenty eight percent, and then they didn't offering and as I brought this kind of stuff up before in the past. Seeing positive solid tumor data is huge because the market is gigantic I'm GonNa talk about this later, but in lung cancer non small cell lung cancer, the patient population is like two hundred and eighty thousand patients per year. So when you're thinking about companies that are likely to see big increases in stock you know. Are they looking at solid tumors? That's a big thing that you can ask yourself and if they're going to see some positive data in that than maybe you should think about how you WanNa. Play it. So good to see that from them might might do deeper dive in the future, but another company touch on is allergy therapeutics, and specifically they are a company that is doing an off the shelf cell therapy. And the data they showed isn't in it off the shelf car. T. Therapy so aloe five zero one and they were looking in relapsed, refractory, non Hodgkin Lymphoma, and the to specific subsets of that was deal. As well, as F. L.. And for all of you who've been watching my show, you'll know that as of last week. You understand clearly that deal is aggressive form of non Hodgkin Lymphoma whereas NFL or Informa- is more of a slow growing. Or an indolent non Hodgkin Lymphoma, so in both of these forms, which is better than just seeing it in say the version they saw an overall response rate of sixty three percent and thirty seven percent were complete responders and I believe this is in line with traditional car. T. Therapy in all explain in a second with off the shelf part means, and just before going to that. They also saw that around thirty two percent of patients saw site time release. Syndrome, which is also I. Think in line with some previous. Cardi therapies so. The benefit here really, and he's been approved for a few years now, and it's seen a lot of success, but those therapies aren't autologous cell therapy, so they need to get the patient. Take the blood from the patient isolate the cells, edit the cells, and then infuse them back into the patient,

"non hodgkin" Discussed on NewsRadio KFBK
"Food web ports. Whether it's a civil court criminal court. The problem is many times when you have you're not sure you're just not sure of what happened and what who's at fault. It's a hard call. That's why in many cases in civil court. It's not a matter of criminal court. You gotta have twelve members of the jury say guilty or not or. Yeah. Twelve say guilty. It's gotta be an animus, otherwise you'll walk criminal. It comes down to well. You were sixty percent at fault. But not completely the other guy was partially at fault to that. So we'll we'll we'll divvy up the liability. So I don't see the divvying up here, the liability. But if but if if they don't know. What causes non-hodgkin's lymphoma? And there's been studies done that round up doesn't cause. Cancer than. How do you make doesn't this give you some pause here? When you start seeing two billion dollar verdicts, eight five five two nine five sixty six hundred a lot about just. Birdie, and what are juries? How do they come up with these these huge numbers talk to Nick in Arinda, California? Hello, nick. Going good. I hear northern California windows, only like ten miles Oakland. And this is the thing, you know. I mean, I'm really honestly, I mean, I think lawsuits settled and everything it's kind of like social the. Thought you know, I feel bad for these corporations. They should not have pay because somebody thinks thought it causes issues even those causes issues that should be they shouldn't the public use these products at their own risk. I mean, you have a recourse stupid. You know that I really think that's very important. I mean, I really really think about socialism, it really is people are going to get a billion dollars. And essentially, that's all it is, you know, people get you could damage by product, you should have no recourse with relation with operation should be free of that completely. Well, but that's I mean now you go back to big tobacco. Big oil big anything on how big. My opinion is with tobacco use those problems that use those things at your own accurate. Yes. I understand. I understand. I understand the the the the guy that eighty years old who started smoking when they didn't. They were. They were saying this is this is great. Okay. So they they do CT them. But since nineteen eighty five they've had warnings on cigarette. Packages saying this is dangerous. So how can you believe somebody? That that day. Those those those carriers of the best things for kids. And then the kids killing themselves in preparation. That's the parents. You don't wash your kids. I wouldn't happen. Well, if they know there's a Deepak than than they they're at fault. But. Even though even if you don't know, there's even if you buy a product that you're still still be responsible. Relation. It's really not. It's not fair to the court. It's not. So it's up to the corporations do ever used roundup. Yes, I've used use it anymore because they say causes cancer. So I don't use it anymore for that reason blaming when you find the stuff out you stop using it if you could sit from us. I got it. That's the way I've got I've got. Very if our buddy I got a slightly different take I saw an ad around of on on television last night. They're still selling it at the stores, if it's so horrible how can this? How can this poison is product that causes cancer be still for sale on this on the shelves? I would use roundup tomorrow. If I needed it. I I am not worried about roundup causing cancer. Well, I use the product. But I will I wish you this. I mean, you know, there has a long history of this sort of stuff. I mean, you know, you know, that they made the cyclone for the concentration camps during World War Two. So I mean, I don't know. I mean, it's just one of those things they make chemicals, and this is what they do with them. Yeah. I just I think that if if round up which is so popular in used in such broad measures is so dangerous. There would be two hundred million people that have died from using roundup. I dunno. I smell that. This thing is just if they don't know what causes non-hodgkin's lymphoma. How can they save this 'cause they're cancer? I don't understand how they can hear you. Then. I hear you. I I don't I don't get it either. But I'm telling you, you know, this is where I'm at with that. I think the corporation should be free of this stuff. I.
A Third Verdict Finds Roundup Caused Cancer
"The couple in this case are a couple of their seventies alva- alva- pill Yod there in the San Francisco Bay area and they've used roundup on their property for thirty five years, and they say that. That extended roundup us gave them both non-hodgkin's lymphoma, and this is the third award against Bayer. Yes, this is the third award since August in trials over a roundup safety the first back in August sent the stock reeling. And then there were two verdicts of both this month also all in the San Francisco Bay area. Also bear is facing a shareholder revolt connected to this since the company purchased Monsanto last year Monsanto makes the roundup weed killer urbicide at the center of the suits shareholders have not responded favorably today's verdicts, they've lambasted the company and last month, they had a vote of no confidence in the management's actions from the last year, which was the latest signal that they're not happy with this month Santo deal the cases of really clobbered bear stock haven't they? Yes. Since the first jury verdict in August. The stock has fallen some thirty percent. And we'll see what happens this week after this third verdict in how many total claims are there the tyrod up to cancer their current? Around thirteen thousand four hundred claims time ran up to cancer, which is a pretty extraordinary number even in these mass torts cases of this one has accelerated quite quickly since the first jury verdict came out. No will this jury award stand or is the judge likely to cut the amount as happened in the first two verdicts. So the biggest part of this award is two billion dollars in punitive damages when those are damages that are awarded essentially to send a message to the defendant to try to correct their behavior than rest of it is fifty five million dollars in compensatory damages which are awarded for things like past economic loss in future economic loss to the couple and so oftentimes juries will award these massive amounts of punitive damages and on appeal or even from the same judge that oversaw the trial. They often get cut down, for example, in the first case that went to trial. There was a pretty large punitive damage award that the jury that the judge rather cut by more than two hundred million even before it. Up on appeal to the next level of court, so often these punitive damages or easy to dole out by Jerry. But they get ratcheted back with zero. What's the big question? Going forward facing these lawsuits. The big question now is whether and win these cases will ever reach a settlement on the company seems to be saying it's still too early. They say this litigation will take a long time. And none of these appeals from the earlier trials have gone through yet. And others. Have also said that the company should probably wait, and is likely to wait until appeals have been processed before they even think about settlement. But as the investor pressure ratchets up, it seems like the company has to either change its Trump strategy or do something to move toward resolution. So it doesn't hang on with over them for years to come shares in buyer where nearly three percent lower this morning in early trading in Europe. Since the first verdict was announced in August shares in the firm have plunged by more than a

The authors of this recent French study like many consumers hypothesized that those who ate a lot of organic foods would have a lower risk of developing cancer because of a lower exposure to pesticide residues to test their hypothesis. The researchers invented something called the organic food score to calculate this. They asked participants to say how often they consumed sixteen different categories of organic foods, if you usually consume that category of organic food, you get two points, sometimes consuming, organic you one point and never eating organic for that category earned you zero points and the points for all sixteen categories were tallied up for a score that would range from zero to thirty two points. Although each category was weighted equally in the score. They were hardly equivalent in terms of their poten-. Pesticide load, for example, two of the sixteen categories dairy products, and eggs are foods that generally have no detectable pesticide residues asking how frequently someone chooses organic. Instead of conventional also really doesn't tell you anything about how much someone is consuming. Some of these categories in the organic food score are things that you might consume occasionally or in very small quantities, such as condiments herbal tea or vitamin supplements other categories on the other hand daily, Staples like bread and milk. How can these contribute equally to your organic food score? So if I drink only organic wine and take only organic vitamins, but never eat organic, fruits and vegetables. I'd get the same score as someone who ate only organic fruits and vegetables, but settled for conventional marmalade and coffee, the others were trying to test their hypothesis that reduced exposure to pesticides would be. Associated with the lower cancer risk. But in my opinion, the organic food score that they developed is an extremely poor proxy for pesticide exposure. But perhaps people who buy organic foods more frequently or at least who say that they do have a lower risk of cancer for reasons that have nothing to do with pesticides high scores on this organic food score might reflect more disposable income or greater health consciousness, or beliefs or fears about food and health and all of those could in turn be associated with other healthy habits. And in fact, the researchers found that a higher frequency of organic food consumption was associated with reduced risk of cancer. Specifically those with the highest organic food scores had a twenty five percent reduction in cancer risk compared to those with the lowest that was the headline. But if you look more closely, you'll find there are some really weird things about this data if organic food consumption or pesticide. Boater were associated with cancer risk you'd expect to see some sort of dose effect. The more organic food you ate the lower. Your risk would be and for certain kinds of cancers. This was the case, for example with skin cancer. The risk went down as the organic food score went up, but for other types of cancer, including colorectal cancer, prostate cancer and premenopausal breast cancer those with organic food scores in the middle of the range had a higher risk than those with the lowest scores and in the show notes for today. I have some graphs that might make it easier to see what I'm talking about. Perhaps the strangest case is for non Hodgkin's lymphoma. Those in the highest category with average organic food scores of nineteen had an eighty six percent reduction in their risk compared to those in the lowest category who had an average score of less than one. But those in the second highest category who scores averaged ten had twenty. Percent increase in risk compared to those with scores of less than one to me. That's a red flag for some really funky data. Then again, when you consider how the organic food score was derived, it makes sense that the relationship between that score and cancer risk might be kind of all over the place because asking people how often they buy organic wine or coffee is not a very effective way to assess their dietary pesticide exposure now to their credit. The researchers also calculated a simplified score based only on the six categories of food that represent the major sources of dietary pesticide exposure. And they are fruits vegetables soy based products, grains, legumes, breads, and cereals and flower. Unfortunately, the results of this secondary analysis or just as problematic those with higher scores suggesting lower pesticide exposure frequently had much greater risk than those with lower scores despite the hoopla and headlines that accompanied the study, I don't think that these results. Make a very strong case that eating organic reduces your cancer. A risk the best evidence today indicates that eating fruits and vegetables is mildly protective irrespective of whether they are conventional organic now there may be a lot of other good reasons to buy organic produce such as reducing the amount of synthetic pesticides that wildlife and agricultural workers are exposed to or supporting your local organic farmer by all means choose organic when it's available affordable and as fresh as the conventional options just promise me that you won't limit your intake of fruits and vegetables due to concerns over pesticides. If you're worried about your cancer risk that energy would be

I guess we'll introduce is the director of the division of cancer prevention and control for the CDC. That's Dr Lisa Richardson. At least a good morning here. Tell us about the name of this app. No, I would stare for talking about is awareness. And this is a condition where the white blood cell count is low and it's low because people get chemotherapy to treat. Toner is an avatar. On the web that all you can download it to your phone. Who use it there? And what she does is walk you through the white count. Who? And what to prevent yourself from becoming sick with an assessing today. Also, joining us on the phone other doctor in a cancer survivor himself. That's Dr Bob Lou bits, Bob. How are you? I'm doing. Well. Thanks, good morning. Tell us a little bit about your experience as someone who has had cancer beaten it. And and how that experience perhaps you're looking at this and realizing. Wow. This might have been pretty helpful. Right. I I was diagnosed with non Hodgkin's lymphoma and a patient here, they have cancer. It's just devastating and disorienting. I was fortunate to be surrounded by family, my friends, and and a and a great medical team, I wound up having radiation therapy, but had a relapse and and had therapy. Just this past year. The common side effects from weight loss, nausea. And I also had this this low. Wha what's now? I would have been an incredible resource for me at the time. Now, I know a lot of medicine, but when you're opposed from this, very different you have a lot of questions, and sometimes you forget to ask that question to your doctor. Sometimes you forget their answer. So it's nice to have a reputable resource to go to get answers to those important questions. Well, let's take that up another level. Then what what is the things that you're talking about? Fortunately, I it's not something I've had to deal with. But I I can certainly see where there's a myriad of of new issues. Questions. Details that you have to keep straight and keep aligned who interacts with this particular app. I mean, it's obviously there's there's information that a user and a patient is going to want to to kind of keep straighten in the using it on the front end. But who else uses this? Where does information come from? Well, the calls from all the things we've learned over the years about Puma therapy session, the things you can do to stay healthy. What is evidence? There's whole is now interested towards tosa part of the Puna, oh that Essex place physicians and other healthcare providers for how to talk to people in a plane with language about this. We start using words like neutral, and at that point, everybody's losses. So just on doctors how to talk about it, nurses, and you know, patients and their families and caregivers as well. We censor forget those. For mason. Also, Bob, I can see where this would be the just the benefit of our conversation talking to a general population where there's the most people are not doctors. So certainly there's an awareness element here for for for for cancer patients families of cancer patients how much of an awareness is there already within the medical community and the usage of of something like this. Don't know how much individuals will know we can get enough. But now, there's a constant evolution of medical knowledge and development of new tools like that are out there and part of our role is to raise awareness, both the community and the medical community without this is so valuable because there is so much information some misinformation, lots of outdated and Tina and prevent infections dot org provides updated resources and evidence based materials. When Lisa you mentioned, all I mean, there's so much information so much research so much data that that could be put into something like this. When you just talk about the topic, generally walk is through just sort of on a thumbnail sketch basis of what you knew that certainly had to be part of this app. Understanding they're probably could have been dozens or hundreds of bits of information or categories of things that could have been included. Also, the the goal here was the keep it simple. So that people wouldn't be struggling through at going. What's that? What is that about? And also is things that we know. So we're here diagnosed with cancer of the initial, you know, Bob said the initial thought they lead to lack of remembering what we tell you for not being able to ask the right questions at that five somewhat does sex is that. So the material at your own wherever he wanted to do it at home at their assemblies or very non threatening way. To learn about the problem and also provide questions for people to ask the provider or the healthcare when they go in. So you're getting your chemotherapy, we tell you when your white count will be low when of the most critical time to careful in the use those interventions that we know work, and then what is going to be you. I know. And what needs to do is get a fever. Call the doctor right away or talking about cancer. Generally speaking, Bob, is there a particular kind of cancer that we're talking about with with patients that maybe would benefit from this the most or is it pretty comprehensive all the website prevents dot org is very comprehensive and has a lot of great material on how to lower your risk of infection. And that's. Goes up with therapy. Moines neutral opinion, again, you didn't mention this earlier. Lisa. What exactly is it? Cell celtel. The white cells are the ones that fight a session in your body. So when we get small Fathy, it's the normal cells as well as the cancer cells, and the white cells are very sensitive chemotherapy window cells are low risk of infection is higher and as we were talking earlier. Flu shot. Those are some simple things that you can do your prevent yourself getting sick. Great information. Lisa do want to remind our audience one more time where they can find out more about everything we've talked about and including the app. The app.

"Two thousand nineteen free agency. As de metro said, there's going to be big players, billable their thing. Look, he's coming off the surgery rate. You could look at it like, hey, this is good for everyone because it frees up more money and he could get more help. There is a feeling among some players and you have to tell me, hey, you don't commit to me. Now when I'm just coming off the injury, you're not willing to believe in me in me. Now the way like say the Sixers dude with Embiid before they knew he would be healthy. That tells me something. We saw Gordon Hayward in Utah, take into account that they didn't extend him early and that he had to go out and that you know that there was more than that. Next summer that he signed his extension deal. I looked at this as if I'm in this position and I know what it's been with this franchise I had, I I'm sure he's has some talk with them that they're going to pay him, but let's just see what we're able to gain an off season. We get ten extra ten million dollars, right? If we don't sign you right. We're, we're able you restrict the fear free agent. So if there's other offer some other teams, we, we're gonna mash that regardless. So we just wanna see what's out there, what we're able to gain, you know, to put alone. I should be upset. First of all, you got to ACO injury and you have a max right there as a player. You want that you want to secure going out engine xactly, but what's going to happen this next year he comes back where he doesn't come, but he can hurt it again, him being their franchise player. Don't you think they had a talk with him saying that I just wanna see, you know what I mean? We can put alongside of you. We're gonna pay you. I mean, we're, we're going. I'm not so sure about that though. What if he gets hurt again, do you pay this guy again, if he gets her again, this upcoming season plays the last five games or he doesn't play at all. Do you give them an extension next even if he doesn't play at all as a player. I want that extension right now coming off acu l. injury how many players tear to ACL and get offered the max? Well, first off, I actually think he shouldn't play this. You play right. Who win that we ever put the Knicks and making a smart move. The same sense. Personal. Smart move. Management in place. Scott Perry is doing a great job. The fish, they absolutely. I mean, they're, they're foundation. Their brain trust is a lot better today. I think this was a smart move for the Knicks. I completely understand that it could though reverberate and we've seen players have feelings down the road. And then here's the thing. The raptors had to talk with the Marta Rosen when he signed right, and it was, oh, leave a little bit more money. This let us do more things as a franchise. Dhamar didn't even go look anywhere. And then when it came time a couple years later to do the right thing by the franchise, and I think most GM's make that trade right. You get quite Leonard on your team like most gyms would do that. Obviously, Dhamar was not in the situation. He thought he signed up for Clint. Capello was restricted free agent. This past summer did not get the amount of wanted because because for the rockets, it was smarter for the rockets to keep lex ability and get him for list. It's just not always smartest for the player. So I'm, I'm curious. I will be upset if I didn't get that extension, he might be happy. We'll see. We'll have to see how he feels about it. We'll find out because he, he tells us how he feels before we go to break. I do want to turn our attention to the loss of Paul Allen who died yesterday due to complications from non Hodgkin's lymphoma. We've talked about Alan on this show over the years because he is the owner of the Portland trailblazers. But honestly, there is very little. He didn't do if you use a computer at all for anything in impart. Thanks to Paul Allen. He co-founded Microsoft with Bill Gates.

"Non Hodgkin's, gastric lymphoma. I was living here again, I'd fallen into depression again, but I went home because I had no healthcare and then Canada. My beloved Canada took me in and cured me and without even no questions asked. I mean, beautiful thing. And and then I, I went home and I decided I would become a stand up comic. I would. I had nothing to be afraid of any longer. I was like, what are you gonna? Do you've tried to kill me million time. You're just not gonna do it. I'm gonna live for a long time, you know, just for spite and I thought I got nothing to be afraid of anymore. So I'm going to reinvent myself. And so I started doing stand up and I don't think see, I would have probably if I've been a young kid today, I would've probably gone into stand up right away, but not for my generation that was not possible. You couldn't do the kind of stand up that I do. In those you could not. You couldn't be openly gay. That's just the way it was. You could not. And so and that's what brought me. And that was again, this was also what brought me back after the cancer was art, stand up, reinventing myself. And I wouldn't say that cancer gave me depression because honestly. In a strange way the year of where I fought it, why beat it in many ways was the worst year of my life. But in some ways it was a good year because I had this is ugly, but I had a a monster to defeat.

"I was diagnosed in two thousand six with non Hodgkin lymphoma. So it's a blood cancer, and I was in the category that is considered incurable. A very large majority of the scientific community sort of viewed this as fringe research. Received my infusion on July second. I had a scan July thirtieth, and I was supposed to find out the next day, but they called me that evening and told me that I, it was clear that it was totally clear. I was in remission. When you see someone go into complete remission, three weeks after this treatment just astounded, and I've seen huge tumors just melt away in the first couple of weeks. I think it may in some ways be essential to cure cancer. Wait, you're hearing about is not a miracle. It's a new kind of cancer treatment called car t. immunotherapy. Basically, this is where scientists reprogram your immune system to destroy cancer, and it is the hot thing in biotech, the companies that are making it are selling for billions and billions of dollars. And there's a reason it's saving the lives of patients like Stephanie Florence, who you just heard, but it wasn't always this way. Carty therapy started out as a black sheep in the cancer research world. A lot of people thought that it was impractical or it just wouldn't work and for many years and actually didn't work.

Maybe we should just try to completely get rid of it around everywhere. Well, maybe we could, if and when we have enough vaccine and treatment on stock, you know what I mean? But like until those things are well established to work, it's going to be hard to get rid of it because you need it to start.

Ninety percent of. They don't give more people cancer. That's right. They make me feel good. This scary one so this, well, they're going to appeal it and we'll see what happens on the appeal. But this was a horrible decision because this is against the science, and this is an example of non expert juries making a motion decisions in my opinion, based upon very flawed legal process rather than just having experts review the actual evidence and making all the evidence and making a decision. But in any case, the best data we have at this point does not support the conclusion that there's any correlation and he sociation between glide for safe or round up as a whole and any cancer. This is a lot of this stems from the. A r c of the World Health Organization who couple years ago, two thousand fifteen declared like say to probable carcinogen, but infamously. Yeah. The guy who was in charge of that Dr Blair did not include evidence from the largest study today at the time of more than fifty thousand farmers and their families showing no correlation showing no evidence of a link between glyphosate exposure and cancer. Was that that he, he overlooked at it wasn't published, no, yeah. Well, he knew it existed. It was a lot of it was his own data. The publication of it was delayed and he didn't include it in the review, but he knew it. We knew the data he and he was like totally panned for doing this. And he said under oath, the data would have altered the IRS's anals. Of course, because it was the laureate was the largest investigated we had today, and it was negative. Also, the decision was an outlier pretty much every other expert panel that's reviewed. The same evidence has come to the opposite conclusion that there is no correlation between glyphosate and NHL non Hodgkin lymphoma specifically or any cancer. But this was a jury trial, right? Yeah, there's a jury trial matters if the jury believes the arguments, yes, who put on a better dog and pony show.

"The program hey thanks dr drew for your attention to lease case as well as what is what is a truly global issue so this issue is whether glyphosate is in fact carcinogenic and whether monsanto has a responsibility in distributing the commercial product or for the rally vailable retail product roundup correct that's right we're in a personal injury trial that opening statements today for for johnson who developed non hodgkin lymphoma line is now terminal after using hundreds and hundreds of gallons of of of round up over about twenty six months as a pest control manager at the school district here in the north bay area now there's always been a question about this product and a lot of peer reviewed published meta analyses have been done and most of them showed no consistent association with any cancer the the epa says no then all of a sudden the world health organization turned around and said oh no there's really a cancer as care where's the controversy coming from yeah so i would invite anybody who's looking at the published science to sort of set aside anything that was either authored explicitly by monsanto which a lot of it was or ghost authored by monsanto and what the public has seen some of that already and we'll find out more during this trial of montana's influence in writing a lot of this socalled science now in terms of actual published meta analyses i believe two of the three did reach a conclusion with a statistically significant increased risk of non hodgkin lymphoma and then as you as you obviously picked up on human empathy miala g is sort of the highest and best evidence that we have right now you can't it's not ethical but a group of people in a room and having drink round up and see if they get cancer so we track populations over time and consistently independent epidemiological studies that have been peer reviewed and published have shown on at least a doubling up to a quadrupling of the risk for folks that are consistently applying this stuff so it says you're that last year more than eight hundred patients were suing monsanto claiming it's popular weed killer roundup gave them cancer is that the non hodgkin's lymphoma cancer or is it all different so i i firmly believe and this is just timothy lichtenberg speaking that we're gonna find out in the future that there are other cancers related to this product at the moment the science is very strongly supports a link with non hodgkin lymphoma for for causation so i personally and we at the miller firm have about two thousand clients who have non hodgkin lymphoma after using after using roundup extensively now the animal studies are not conclusive now not not that animals are the same as humans but the animal studies have have been quite uncertain sure and i'm not gonna comment too much on the science because i think you're gonna learn a lot of interesting things about the animal studies at the evidence comes out in this trial you'll see what happens when a month into gets a result with lab animals so they don't like it generally does not make it to the light of day or there are a lot of resources but into changing the results but no we absolutely look for consistency across species and there are certainly multiple animal studies showing the same thing and this causing blood and lymph cancers in mice and rats roundup has been on the market though for years why why so why so recently are now so many people with cancer looking to this product as a cause why hasn't this come up sooner yeah you know what else have been on the market for a long time is is cigarettes and i think that we are they are right now in twenty eighteen where cigarettes were in the nineteen nineties that is that is the month into argument is hey this has been around for a.
