Why wage a war on pharma ? What do patients with MS gain from it ?
The battle to engage in is much more simple - Step 1, How do pwMS get the Ultrasound/MRV without going to Poland. Step 2 How do pwMS find a Interventional (Neuro) Radiologist to perform angioplanty on restricted veins.
Do not expect the medical and pharmaceutical community to jump at this method. Please spend your efforts and energy in making progress for pwMS rather than battling pet hates.

I agree. A pharma as any other firm has to make money, and is normal that they do not investigate something if there is no money involved. They have the right.
The ones that had no right at all for ignoring this OLD research are the MS societies around the world. From my point of view they are the ones that had the duty of investigate these non-standard publications, and they never did.
I think there was a thread explaining that Schelling had problems with them. I hope that someday they will have to apologize.
