Good point, Finn.
I read the presentation. You know the clinical trial he mentioned was very important right now? The one comparing Copaxone with Betaseron and DOUBLE dose Betaseron! I DIED laughing! That was the trial I was almost in, and guess who is doing it? SCHERING!!! And I swear! The neuros must be TOLD what to tell patients when they ask about it. My neuro said EXACTLY what that doctor said in his presentation, when I asked him why the pharma corp. was testing a DOUBLE dose of Betaseron. He said, "It's like the chemotherapy drugs. If a little works, then maybe more works better!" Except I literally called my neuro stupid for saying something as dumb as that! (Well, what can I say..........I DO think that's a stupid response coming from a PhD in pharmacology/toxicology.) THAT'S a scientific reason for doubling a dose of a drug? Sounds more like that they are finding that the interferons aren't working that well, huh...........otherwise why the need to test a DOUBLE dose of the drug in the first place, if the standard dose does so well?
Yep.............call me skeptical.
