All those neurologists looking out for your health by alerting you to the dangers of treatment for CCSVI have overlooked the adverse event data for the drugs they prescribe day in and day out.
Adverse Events, a company that analyzes the FDA data and flags drugs whose adverse event reports indicate they warrant more attention highlights two MS drugs as ones that should be on the FDA radar:
Tecfidera (Dimethyl Fumarate)
Almost more interesting is that of all classes of drugs, Adverse Events singles out MS drugs with a special table because they all score so highly in the Adverse Event scoring system for drug warranting further scrutiny by the FDA.
Registration is required but a new white paper by Adverse Events is available at:Expediting Drug Safety Using FOIA:
An Analysis of 57,000 New Unreleased FAERS Reports
