Any comments about this new lung cancer technology?

I also read about the Biomoda website
( and was intrigued about their lung
cancer research. This is a company that is offering their stock via the
internet.  Apparently, they claim that their technology will test for
lung cancer from sputum.

To my way of thinking, this would make testing a lot more efficient and
cost-effective, which I imagine is the driving force behind the

Can anyone verify this technology, or is this another goose chase?

Pathology Residency and Jobs

My wife is applying for residency programs in pathology and we were
curious how difficult it is to obtain residencies in Pathology
(particulary for foreing medical graduates) and what the future for
pathologists is like in the U.S.  We have heard that a lot of hospitals
are cutting down on the number of pathologists on their staff and that
it is getting harder and harder to get jobs in pathology nowadays.

Can anybody shed some light on these topics?

Sudden Death, Negative Autopsy

There are a number of subtle cardiac abnormalities which are associated (and
considered causal) for sudden unexpected death in young people; some are
especially common in athletes.   Are you certain that the epicardial
coronaries were not embedded within the myocardium, so-called ‘myocardial
bridge.’  This one can certainly be missed if you are not aware of its
significance.  Also, we have had several autopsies in the past few years with
very minimal very focal lymphocytic infiltrates (would be missed for
instance in a sparsely sampled heart) in the myocardium, which I would not
have called myocarditis, except that by PCR, Adenovirus nucleic acid was
retrieved.  Adenovirus seems to be able to provoke sudden death, presumably on
the basis of arrhythmia, without leaving much evidence of its presence.  It
is a virus which easily moves into host cells…I suggest you PCR a sample of
the myocardium for viral nucleic acids, especially Adenovirus.  Good luck,
these are frustrating cases.

Help! Has anyone bought Biomoda stock via the internet?

I know this may not be the appropriate forum for this topic, but I would
appreciate any information anyone has on a company called BIOMODA.  They
are a medical company doing research on "diagnostic and therapeutic"
technolgy as applied to the detection of lung cancer.

I generally handle my own investments and this comapny was suggested to
me by an associate who found it through their website (they’re doing a
direct public offering).

I know this isn’t an investment list, but I wanted to hear whatever the
medical and science communities had to say about the company.

My questions:

1.  Has anyone on this list ever heard of this company?
2.  Is their technology worth investing in?

If anyone is interested, the website is at

I’d like to hear your input on this, as I am always looking for ground
floor investments, but I don’t want to throw my money away!

I am also posting this request to other lists.

Thank you,

Breast Cancer

As far as I know there is no association between Hep. C infection and
breast cancer.

Ibon Ascensor, three months old, is in a critical situation due to
pulmonary hypertension,
for which doctors have not found any scientific cause. The first crisis
took place when he
was already 3 months old. Only a prompt solution can save his life.
