Placebo fraud in clinical trials?

Postby HarryZ » Fri Oct 29, 2010 7:32 am

This is an interesting article, to say the least!

We know that the MS drug companies hang their hats on the drug vs placebo trials to obtain approval and then market their medications for MS.

Kind of makes you wonder, doesn't it!

Hi Harry,

Thank you for posting this article. I'm disgusted by the 92% figure quoted in the article and with all the doctors, researchers, and peer-reviewers who let this happen. Clearly, it's time for some drastic measures...

I never thought I'd say this, but here goes...

CALLING ALL TIMS' SKEPTICS!!! CALLING ALL TIMS' SKEPTICS!!!

Skeptics, you are needed to investigate the placebo pills used in the clinical trials of the new oral MS med, the new MS "walking" pill, the CRABs, and Tysabri.

Forward march!

Not all drugs are compared with a placebo - in the EU for example they are compared with other drugs and have to prove more efficient (e.g. campath vs rebif)
