Eggzactly. Which is why profit and healthcare don't mix.

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

i really hope there is something here

i know people who suffer with/from arthritis in a big way...

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.
