Notes: Exciting, fast-paced account of the race to design a drug and build a company. Drama switches rapidly from laboratory to board-room. The original goal of the company was the investigation of the structure and function of the immunosuppressant molecules Cyclosporin and newly-discovered FK-506, to enable the development of a new, safer, effective drug for use in facilitating organ transplants. Commercial pressure and serendipty result in the objectives broadening out in the search for a blockbuster - leading eventually to work with potential anti-viral treatments for AIDS.
