Hi Timo,

Thanks for your comment. I wonder if you’d mind answering a few questions?

You say that you localised the OPN3 protein. Yet this was first reported in 2001 by the Department of Molecular Genetics, Institute of Ophthalmology, University College London.

They say that OPN3 was discovered…

in a wide range of tissues including brain, liver, and retina.

So, my first question is: did your team really discover OPN3?

Secondly, when are you going to publish the data from your original experiment?

Thirdly, you said that we could expect answers in early 2011 – it’s now late 2011 – when will your work be published by any peer reviewed journal?

Finally, the patent for Valkee was filed in 2009 – a few years before you conducted your experiments. Is it usual to file a patent before your research has proven the science?

I look forward to your answers.

Many thanks.
