Good find on the above article.
I invest in stocks and have been looking for a way to play this. The company that comes up with this is "AM Pharma." They are in another country and I haven't the foggiest clue how to invest in them. Except that a London company, BBI Holdings, apparently has a subsidiary that owns 8% of AM Pharma. Then I found out that an American company, Inverness , stock ticker IMA is seeking to buy BBI Holdings. But IMA has been doing nothing but acquiring companies lately. Ironically enough, after having taken the back door into this research, I find out Cramer likes IMA and I found a video of him referring to his stockpickr website that states George Soros has IMA in his portfolio.
This is not my field of expertise. I would assume if this led to a novel treatment, whoever held the patent, whoever supplied the materials etc would profit. Sometimes that is just hard to figure out.
Sorry as this is slightly off-topic; I just couldn't resist sharing this information I spent hours researching with you guys. I obviously see huge potential in any company that can more effectively alleviate the suffering that not just us, but folks with many autoimmune conditions go through.
Let me know if anyone is interested in pursuing this investment research.
