Goldman Sachs ‘Is Curing Patients a Sustainable Business Model?’

‘Is curing patients a sustainable business model?’ The answer is NO – can’t make money on healthy – cured customers, must make money on chronically ill, not dying patients.  Just have to keep them chronically ill for Trillion dollar after market care from vaccines and chemical drugs. What happened to the Hippocratic Oath – first do no harm? The answer is a trillion dollar industry.

No safety reports in 30 and fiercely defended the ‘safety’ claims, vaccine are safe and effective….

Goldman Sachs 'Is curing patients a sustainable business model?'

Post from Tae Kim – Goldman Sachs asks in biotech research report: ‘Is curing patients a sustainable business model?’

Goldman Sachs analysts attempted to address a touchy subject for biotech companies, especially those involved in the pioneering “gene therapy” treatment: cures could be bad for business in the long run.

“Is curing patients a sustainable business model?” analysts ask in an April 10 report entitled “The Genome Revolution.”

“The potential to deliver ‘one shot cures’ is one of the most attractive aspects of gene therapy, genetically-engineered cell therapy and gene editing. However, such treatments offer a very different outlook with regard to recurring revenue versus chronic therapies,” analyst Salveen Richter wrote in the note to clients Tuesday. “While this proposition carries tremendous value for patients and society, it could represent a challenge for genome medicine developers looking for sustained cash flow.”

Biotech shares soar on dealmaking, drug progress from CNBC.

Richter cited Gilead Sciences’ treatments for hepatitis C, which achieved cure rates of more than 90 percent. The company’s U.S. sales for these hepatitis C treatments peaked at $12.5 billion in 2015, but have been falling ever since. Goldman estimates the U.S. sales for these treatments will be less than $4 billion this year, according to a table in the report.

“GILD is a case in point, where the success of its hepatitis C franchise has gradually exhausted the available pool of treatable patients,” the analyst wrote. “In the case of infectious diseases such as hepatitis C, curing existing patients also decreases the number of carriers able to transmit the virus to new patients, thus the incident pool also declines … Where an incident pool remains stable (eg, in cancer) the potential for a cure poses less risk to the sustainability of a franchise.”

The analyst didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.

The report suggested three potential solutions for biotech firms:

“Solution 1: Address large markets: Hemophilia is a $9-10bn WW market (hemophilia A, B), growing at ~6-7% annually.”

“Solution 2: Address disorders with high incidence: Spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) affects the cells (neurons) in the spinal cord, impacting the ability to walk, eat, or breathe.”

“Solution 3: Constant innovation and portfolio expansion: There are hundreds of inherited retinal diseases (genetics forms of blindness) … Pace of innovation will also play a role as future programs can offset the declining revenue trajectory of prior assets.”

  1. This is part of the TRANSHUMAN Project …..to change Humanity…..control, space travel and living and other things.

    The 98% of the DNA has info about all human potential.

    Vaccines and Pharma Meds and don’t forget Radiation , which is what causes evolution of species..

    The US Military is working on using one million veterans for DNA, Gene study…said to help because they love everyone.

    Worldwide not just one banking house…..Part of the Agenda

    News Propaganda misdirects.

  2. In 1958, Turkey producers lost 50 percent of their turkeys to aneurysms. Damn, that’s a lot of turkeys! So what did Butterball and the rest do? They sent a few dead turkeys to the lab: “Please tell me what they’re missing.” No problem. Weeks later, came the answer: They’re missing copper: Lack of copper causes aneurysms. So in my book on how to prevent and reverse heart diseases, I give two chapters on the role of copper in human nutrition and the role of copper in cardiovascular health. (No, it’s not published yet.) My point? if it’s an animal that makes money for some producer, they’ll solve the problem pronto, but humans? Forget about it! My mom died from a brain aneurysm. (Stroke). Sure, it was lack of copper in her diet. BUT that’s $2.00 per month in a dietary supplement. On the other hand, aneurysm surgery is $30,000. Do “we” care about preventing or curing anything? NO fckng way! This post is spot on.

    I hope I made my point. That’s why there is NO “Diabetes Reversal” journal, but there sure is “Diabetes Maintenance” Journal. I reversed Diabetes in a 14 year old client a few years back, even though the patient’s doctor said, “Type I Diabetes is not reversible.” Not true. In two weeks, the patient was off insulin! (Full disclosure: The patient must be young, with measurable C-peptide, and recently diagnosed, THEN you can reverse Type I Diabetes. Type II is easy to reverse.)

    This article is spot on, but what makes me sad is that the mainstream media NEVER has articles like this. Why not?

    1. Media Corruption – No lame stream media attention because they are bought and paid for by Big pHarma, what a brilliant strategy! US and New Zealand are the only 2 countries that allow Direct-to-Consumer Pharmaceutical Advertising – $5.2 billion on TV ad for 2016 and rising, with a huge pot of money from all the mandates vaccines and NO LIABILITY! Will do a post on this…The average American television viewer watches as many as nine drug ads a day, totaling 16 hours per year, which far exceeds the amount of time the average individual spends with a primary care physician. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3278148/

      ‘When you think of how many children are autistic because the major media lied about the dangers of heavy schedules of vaccine. They should be prosecuted for that … They made their money by tricking productive people into going along with a system that was harvesting them and they did it on purpose and they thought they were clever. If you look at the wealth that’s been stolen from the productive people and the harm that’s been done to them and their children and their grandchildren I don’t think the backlash is anywhere near from over.’

  3. Spot on admin…Thanks for the great site and the great reporting. Your dedicated work is appreciated!! : )
