NHE...I work in medicine and have to the Micomedex here at work...which has all of the information that you mentioned as being in the "secret compartments." That information has been a god send to me...as I've just been diving into the internet and library here at work trying to learn as much as I can about MS....especially the treatments. The corporate materials that I mentioned getting are...just as you said...sales tools. They kind of piss me off because they provide no real information other than what drug uses what number of shots and where. However, they will make great DVD/CD cases once I clean all of the sales crap out of them.
I asked Biogen (in 2001) over and over again for more information. They kept sending me glossy sales-prepared materials. I finally said "Just don't send me any more brochures with people on the front cover".
I was told to go back and ask my neurologist. Which I did.
The good part:
What I got from the MS nurse was the peer-reviewed paper that Biogen needed to submit to the FDA to get their new drug approved.
I called the MS nurse back to say "thank you, that's just what I wanted".
The bad part:
At the time I was working in R&D and delt with statistics every day/hour/waking moment and was agast at how ineffective this drug was.
But you wouldn't get that idea from reading their colorful pamphlets.
