Has anybody read this article?! by the way, it's a "point of view", so i dont even know how the BLEEP it got published in the Annals of Neurology - oh, wait, Annals of Neurology
?! oh, THAT's how this rubbish managed to get published! Man, I should REALLY use my brain a little bit more hey?! oh, but..wait.. I have MS! and i suffer from brain fog/lack of mental clarity ALL DAY LONG.. cause no-one will help.. I guess i can be excused then!
Anyway, bored as I am at 12:30am, I decided to google each of the author doctors of this article. Turns out the majority are neurologists, a handful are their sidekicks (neuroradiologists) and one DEVELOPS DRUGS AND IS GIVEN HUGE
incentives from Teva (team copaxone) and Biogen (team Avonex). Interesting to see team serono (rebif) hasn't been included - however this article
http://www.nature.com/nbt/journal/v19/n ... 1_696.html
highlights how PETTY drug companies are against one another - and i guess the attitude is adopted by its prescribers too.
oh and the cherry topping everything else I've ever
read was brought to the table by none other, than *drum roll*
the MSRA themselves (yes, they did this one all on their own!). They published the following statement on their website about CCSVI LIBERATION - "all patients remained on disease modifying therapies makng any interpretation of efficacy questionable".
Ok, (now i am being real generous) IF the CRABs generally worked, that argument would be viable and rational - however, they really need to stop before they continue to become the laughing stock and last resort support for PwMS..
We should really start out own support groups with REAL ppl behind it!
