                        Chairman's Views on The Antibiotics Related Industry

   The simple truth of the matter is that the Pharmaceutical Industry is going to have a rather drastic slide.   The fact is that there is a disease that is killing white blood cells.   As the disease grows, the source for new antibodies subsequently declines.   They are inversely correlated  (rate of disease vs rate of new antibodies).   As a result there will be a drop in earnings forecasts, which will make it harder to raise money for the pharmaceutical companies.   This risk was not mentioned in the 10K of the following company.

   It is as if they do not know that the solution is theoretically The KIN Intravenous Solution (Glucose + Cloned White Blood Cells).   If anybody needs more information on the protocols for ex vivo production of white blood cells, then please contact the Chairman at khalidnatto@gmail.com.

  Overview:

  Abbott Laboratories engages in the discovery, development, manufacture, and sale of health care products worldwide. It has four segments: Pharmaceutical Products, Diagnostic Products, Ross Products, and International. Pharmaceutical Products segment offers adult and pediatric pharmaceuticals, which are sold on the prescription or recommendation of physicians. It offers products for the treatment of epilepsy, migraine, and bipolar disorder; dyslipidemia; rheumatoid arthritis and psoriatic arthritis; hypothyroidism; hypertension; obesity; HIV infection; and hyperparathyroidism. Diagnostic Products segment sells diagnostic systems and tests for blood banks, hospitals, commercial laboratories, physicians' offices, alternate-care testing sites, plasma protein therapeutic companies, and consumers. It offers immunoassay systems; chemistry systems; assays used for screening and/or diagnosis for drugs of abuse, cancer, therapeutic drug monitoring, fertility, physiological diseases, and infectious diseases, such as hepatitis and HIV; hematology systems and reagents; blood glucose monitoring meters, test strips, data management software, and accessories for people with diabetes; and point-of-care diagnostic systems and tests for blood analysis. Ross Products segment includes pediatric and adult nutritionals. It co-promotes Synagis for prevention of respiratory syncytial virus under an agreement with MedImmune, Inc. International segment markets pharmaceutical and adult and pediatric nutritional products, as well as consumer products outside the United States. The company also has a 50% owned joint venture, TAP Pharmaceutical Products, Inc., which offers pharmaceutical products primarily for the United States and Canada. Abbott's products are sold to retailers, wholesalers, hospitals, health care facilities, laboratories, physicians' offices, and government agencies. The company was founded by Wallace Calvin Abbott in 1888 and is headquartered in Abbott Park, Illinois.

Pharmaceutical Products

   The Pharmaceutical Products segment's products include a broad line of adult and pediatric pharmaceuticals, which are sold primarily on the prescription, or recommendation, of physicians.

   The principal products included in the Pharmaceutical Products segment are:

• Depakote®, an agent for the treatment of epilepsy, migraine, and bipolar disorder;

• TriCor®, for the treatment of dyslipidemia;

• HUMIRA® for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis and psoriatic arthritis;

• the anti-infectives clarithromycin, sold in the United States under the trademark Biaxin®, and Omnicef®, an oral cephalosporin antibiotic;

• Synthroid®, for the treatment of hypothyroidism;

• Mavik® and Tarka®, for the treatment of hypertension;

• Meridia®, for the treatment of obesity;

• the anti-virals Kaletra® and Norvir®, protease inhibitors for the treatment of HIV infection;

• the anesthesia product sevoflurane, sold in the United States under the trademark Ultane®; and

• the specialty product Zemplar®, for the treatment of hyperparathyroidism.

   In addition, through an agreement with Boehringer Ingelheim, the Pharmaceutical Products segment distributed and co-promoted Flomax® for the treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia, Micardis® for the treatment of hypertension, and Mobic® for the treatment of arthritis. Abbott's co-promotion of Flomax® and Mobic® expired as provided by the agreement in 2005. Abbott will co-promote Micardis® through the end of March 2006 and will receive residual commissions on Boehringer Ingelheim's sales of the three products. Abbott's activities as the distributor of these products ended effective January 1, 2006.

   The Pharmaceutical Products segment markets its products in the United States and generally sells its products directly to wholesalers, government agencies, health care facilities, and independent retailers from Abbott-owned distribution centers and public warehouses. This segment directs its primary marketing efforts toward securing the prescription of Abbott's brand of products by physicians. Managed care providers (for example, health maintenance organizations and pharmacy benefit managers) and state and federal governments and agencies (for example, the Department of Veterans Affairs and the Department of Defense) are also important customers.

   Competition in the Pharmaceutical Products segment is generally from other health care and pharmaceutical companies. The search for technological innovations in pharmaceutical products is a significant aspect of competition in this segment. The introduction of new products by competitors and changes in medical practices and procedures can result in product obsolescence in the Pharmaceutical Products segment. Price can also be a factor. In addition, the substitution of generic drugs for the brand prescribed has increased competitive pressures on pharmaceutical products which are off-patent.

Diagnostic Products

   The Diagnostic Products segment's products include diagnostic systems and tests for blood banks, hospitals, commercial laboratories, physicians' offices, alternate-care testing sites, plasma protein therapeutic companies, and consumers.

   The principal products included in the Diagnostic Products segment are:

• immunoassay systems, including ARCHITECT®, AxSYM®, IMx®, Abbott Quantum™, Commander®, Abbott PRISM®, TDx®, and TDxFlx®;

• chemistry systems such as ARCHITECT® c8000® and Aeroset®;

• assays used for screening and/or diagnosis for drugs of abuse, cancer, therapeutic drug monitoring, fertility, physiological diseases, and infectious diseases such as hepatitis and HIV;

• the Vysis® product line of genomic-based tests, including the PathVysion® HER-2 DNA probe kit and the UroVysion™ bladder cancer recurrence kit;

• a full line of hematology systems and reagents known as the Cell-Dyn® series;

• the product line of FreeStyle® blood glucose monitoring meters, test strips, data management software and accessories for people with diabetes, including FreeStyle®, FreeStyle Flash® (sold in certain international markets as FreeStyle® Mini), FreeStyle Papillon™, and FreeStyle Tracker®, and other blood glucose monitoring meters, test strips, data management software and accessories, including Precision Xtra™, MediSense Optium™, Precision PCx®, Precision Q.I.D.®, MediSense II™, TrueMeasure® strips, Precision Link® Direct, and Precision® Sure-Dose® insulin syringes; and

• the i-STAT® point-of-care diagnostic systems and tests for blood analysis, including the i-STAT® system.

   In addition, under its strategic alliance with Celera Diagnostics, a business of the Celera Genomics Group of Applera Corporation, the Diagnostic Products segment develops, manufactures and markets a broad range of in vitro molecular diagnostic products for disease detection, disease progression monitoring, and therapy selection. Through a sales and marketing agreement with Enfer Scientific Ltd., the Diagnostic Products segment also distributes diagnostic tests in Europe and Japan that are used to detect bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) in cattle.

   The Diagnostic Products segment markets its products worldwide. These products are generally marketed and sold directly to hospitals, laboratories, clinics, and physicians' offices from Abbott-owned distribution centers and public warehouses. Outside the United States, sales are made either directly to customers or through distributors, depending on the market served. Blood glucose monitoring meters and test strips for people with diabetes are also marketed and sold over-the-counter to consumers.

   The Diagnostic Products segment's products are subject to competition in technological innovation, price, convenience of use, service, instrument warranty provisions, product performance, long-term supply contracts, and product potential for overall cost-effectiveness and productivity gains. Some products in this segment can be subject to rapid product obsolescence. Although Abbott has benefited from technological advantages of certain of its current products, these advantages may be reduced or eliminated as competitors introduce new products. Certain of this segment's products are subject to restrictions on their sale in the United States under a consent decree entered in 1999. The consent decree is discussed in the section captioned, "Regulation" on page 8.

Ross Products

   The Ross Products segment's products include a broad line of pediatric and adult nutritionals. These products are sold directly to consumers, often on the recommendation of physicians or other health care professionals. The Ross Products segment also includes specialty pharmaceuticals.

                            Highlights of Risks Related to Our (ABT) Business

   For further detail please review the 10 K Form in detail.

1. Abbott may acquire other businesses, license rights to technologies or products, form alliances, or dispose of or spin-off businesses, which could cause it to incur significant expenses and could negatively affect profitability.

2. The expiration of patent protection and licenses may affect Abbott's future revenues and operating income.

3. Competitors' intellectual property may prevent Abbott from selling its products or have a material adverse effect on Abbott's future profitability and financial condition.

4. Abbott is subject to cost-containment efforts.

5. Abbott is subject to numerous governmental regulations and it can be costly to comply with these regulations and to develop compliant products and processes.

6. Laws and regulations affecting government benefit programs could impose new obligations on Abbott, require Abbott to change its business practices, and restrict its operations in the future.

7. If Abbott does not introduce new products in a timely manner, Abbott's products may become obsolete over time, customers may not buy Abbott's products, and Abbott's revenue and profitability may decline.

8. The manufacture of many of Abbott's products is a highly exacting and complex process, and if Abbott or one of its suppliers encounters problems manufacturing products, Abbott's business could suffer.

9. The international nature of Abbott's business subjects it to additional business risks that may cause its revenue and profitability to decline.

10. Significant safety issues could arise for Abbott's products, which could have a material adverse effect on Abbott's revenues and financial condition.

11. Abbott faces significant competition and may not be able to compete effectively.
