Lastly, Anaflaximab

By

...And finishing on carbon macrophages.
Data show sustained ability
to activate reverse cholesterol
in Chinese hamsters at the early stages
of vaccine-naive stability
analyses. We ran a blind control
on higher primates in adjacent cages.
Anaflaximab's utility
is illustrated clearly if you scroll
to slide sixteen online or turn to pages
nine and ten. Despite sterility
in females, blindness, and a minor toll
on lungs in specimens between the ages
5 and 12, the drug's facility
in vivo constitutes a shot on goal
with first-in-human scheduled for June.
These metrics may evolve.
