Interesting story of Scios' CEO and p38 program

I think in the news biz they'd call this a human interest story: Scios' then-CEO's battle with multiple myeloma inspired the company to try their p38 inhibitor in multiple myeloma.

Unfortunately, following the article, Scios' compound ran into tox issues, so it never made it to market (particuarly for it's first application, RA), but at least it appears that the CEO is still alive and kicking - a quick GOOG search shows news articles about him in 2006, so presumably he's very healthy.

And, of course, today, Scios is no more, and the scientists mentioned in the article work somewhere else.

My evil boss from Celera went to Scios. At risk of being considered an uncharitable churl, I will say Good for her.
