I’d heard of Neose Pharmaceuticals on and off over the years. They’d been trying to make a go of it in carbohydrate-based drug discovery, an underappreciated and underserved niche. But late last year the company announced that it had run out of money and out of time. And if you really want to see what the end of the line looks like, well, this is it.
