This is what the needle biopsy yielded

"January 20, 2014

Dear Mr. Suskin,

The purpose of this letter is to confirm our conversation that took place over the phone last week in reference to the genetic sequencing of recently acquired lung tissue. Upon conclusion of your biopsy on 12/11/13, five (5) core biopsy samples were transported to Champions Oncology’s laboratory. Two (2) of the samples were immediately prepared for shipment to Personal Genome Diagnostics (PGD) for the purpose of whole exome sequencing while the remaining three (3) samples were frozen.

On 12/30/13 I received an email from P60 informing me that the pathologist did not find any tumor in the two initial samples provided. When I informed my scientist of the situation, she had the remaining three core biopsy samples sent to an outside pathologist for review. The plan was to submit whatever sample(s) came back as positive for tumor. We received word last week that the remaining three samples also did not contain tumor. For this reason we are unable to complete whole exome sequencing on your tissue samples.

As you are aware, I have requested that your payment of $”Non of your Business” be returned to your bank account. Of course, should another opportunity arise during which it is appropriate for Champions Oncology to obtain an additional tissue sample, I’d be happy to facilitate such testing again at that time.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions surrounding the information provided above."

I will explain more soon...

Carpe Diem.
