After all, if every economic issue is framed as a struggle between a hard-working white middle class and undeserving minorities, then workers of all shades will be left fighting for scraps while the wealthy withdraw further into their private enclaves - Barack Obama

Viagra? Nah! even though you cited the first letter correctly.

That drug molecule is called VISMODEGIB. It was approved by the FDA in the year 2012, as a drug for treating basal cell carcinoma - skin cancer. Genentech is the Pharma that manufactures it.

The way it works is by targeting the hedgehog (Hh) signaling pathway that is so vital for the formation of organs in the body. Abnormal Hh signaling is associated with the development of cancer cells.

I hope this explanation helps those who want to learn something new everyday. It is NOT for the intellectual MIDGETS with their gbose-gbose widgets in bad behavior on the Bintu.

I wonder why, Vg - the Biochemist? Do you not want to save lives on a global scale?

What new field are you involved in at the present time? if I am allowed to ask you. Is it more rewarding to you and yours? In that case, more power to you me bra.
