Quotes

...Dr. Rajagopalan, Fractyl CEO, said, "We are preparing to launch our multinational study by the end of the year and working towards our clinical development efforts in the U S , which we expect to commence during 2016."
"I pray every day to get better and to live a normal life" he said. "If I beat cancer twice, I can dodo it three times."
"MR enteroclysis would not have performed better," Dr. Koonstra continued. "The critical point is that the prevalence of small-bowel neoplasia in LS does not appear to be high enough to warrant screening."
"A gastrointestinal implant device includes an unsupported flexible sleeve and an anchor coupled to a proximal portion of the sleeve. The flexible sleeve is open at both ends, and adapted to extend into the duodenum to limit absorption of nutrients in the duodenum. The anchor is adapted to be retained within the duodenum, particularly in the duodenal bulb just distal to the pylorus."
