Where's there's muck there's brass

A Chinese couple, Li Li and Li Tan, have just made US$6.2bn from listing their pharmaceutical company. Shenzhen Hepalink Pharmaceutical, on the Shenzhen stock exchange. Its speciality is making heparin, a blood thinner derived from pigs' intestines. Li Li met his wife when they were studying chemistry at Sichuan University and they founded the company in 1998. They now want to keep a low profile and are refusing all interviews. Good for them!

That's a great success story. I wonder how they stumbled across pigs' intestines in the first place..
