There were already reports at that time that people were going to Walgreens and getting venous draws. Parloff pushes her on why they would use a nanotainer for tests it doesn’t do on the Theranos machines. She goes off the record to basically say, “that gets into a whole thing about how the devices work, which we don’t really want to get into.”

We hear another conversation where Parloff asks how many tests they can do. She says, “I think can we say more than 1,000.”

Parloff says he provided his recordings of his conversations with Ms. Holmes with the government in response to a subpoena. We hear a two-minute clip where he asks her whether Theranos can perform all the tests that Quest could. She says, “We can do all of those tests.”

Parloff had never visited a lab before so when he returned from Palo Alto, he arranged to visit a conventional lab for contrast. He agreed not to identify that lab.

Christian Holmes sent Parloff a presentation with “detailed clinical background” on Theranos’s science, which was encrypted and he no longer has access to it. We also see a PowerPoint that Holmes walked him through.

He toured Theranos’s office and the Newark lab. He also went to a Walgreens in downtown Palo Alto, arranged by Theranos.

We see an email from Parloff to Holmes with a long list of things he wants to do when he visits for the profile. He asks for a blood test and Theranos offers to get him a prescription for the test.

Parloff has been coughing a little and explains that he has a seasonal allergy that happens every November, “I’ve got three vaccines,” and the room laughs in relief.

Boies Schiller’s head of comms approached Parloff about writing an article about a patent lawsuit Theranos had won, but then told him “the real story was this remarkable company and its remarkable founder and C.E.O., Elizabeth Holmes.”

Parloff was at Fortune from 2004 to 2016. He wrote an article in 2014 that Holmes then sent to many investors while soliciting funding.

Schenk blew through that testimony in less than 10 minutes! Mr. Ellsworth is dismissed.

Dr. Ellsworth, a dentist, had to get a PSA test before going on a long mission trip through his church to Asia. He testifies his first test, which was given on a fingerstick, returned a PSA level of 26.1, which was very high. “I’ve never exceeded a 2.”

Mehrl K. Ellsworth, the patient who was given the irregular PSA tests, is now on the stand.

Dr. Burnes is excused. Another “short” witness is coming after the break, likely another doctor or patient.

Jeff Schenk does redirect and asks Dr. Burnes whether one of the “specific harms” of getting a PSA test is that the test is inaccurate and the patient takes steps they shouldn’t have.
