Did you see all the research I have done regarding VLA-4 antagonists? And posted? Well, ok....I didn't post it "all", because it would be mounds of it. I researched in depth both the company AND the chemical.
Antegren is simply a VLA-4 antagonist. Do some research on VLA-4 antagonists yourself (or read the thread where I did a lot of it). Also, do some additional research from there on about what happens to fertility, miscarriage and birth defects when VLA-4 is blocked. Do some in depth research into integrins and their complex physiological functions in the body. THEN talk to me.
All I'm posing are some valid "questions". It seems pretty "odd" that nobody can present alternative evidence that my "caution" is misplaced.
Note........I say "caution". I'm a researcher by trade. Believe me, my research has to be pretty sound or I'd have my butt in a sling many times over the years. My research, data, and hypotheses are depended upon in courts of law.
Besides, I never said Antegren wouldn't be helpful, I am just asking if the side-effects have been FULLY investigated, and if so............show me.
And as I said....I haven't come to any conclusions, just posed some questions that nobody seems to be able to answer, can they?
EDIT: Also, a very prominent neurologist even requested that I do some pharmacological research for him on a couple of different things. Do you really believe that if he didn't think he could rely on my correlations, etc. that he would ever have asked me to do it for him in the first place? Sorry........sounds like I'm bragging, but that's not it. I'm just explaining that my credibility is pretty high and trusted. There is no way I'd ever jeopardize my hard earned reputation in research by being "sloppy".
SECOND EDIT: Meadow, the more I think of it, the more it sounds like you haven't read most of my posts over the last few months to get a "feel" for who I am, what I do, etc. The chemical/scientific research I did is under "General Discussion", not this category.
THIRD EDIT: Oh.....
....and believe me, I DO put EVERYTHING through the same "lens" before I make comments. I rarely leave too many stones unturned.
