I take your note as confirmation that you are unwilling to have anyone confirm the facts behind your story.
What is interesting is that you posted your story on this thread as “Elmo” on Tuesday, Nov 2 at 10:24 a.m. An entry characterized as “Guest” replied to your story two hours later and spread a rumor that three more people had strokes while taking Antegren. Elmo referenced the reply of “Guest” in his subsequent message, indicating that Elmo and Guest are not the same individual.
The exact same story told by Elmo (sister suffered stroke taking Antegren) was posted on another thread on this website on Tuesday, Nov 2 at 10:18 a.m. However, it was not posted under the Elmo name, but instead was posted under “Guest”. Follow this link to confirm:

So Elmo, please explain the same posting under two different screen names which were six minutes apart. Alternatively, allow Arron or myself to confirm the facts of your story by providing contact information for your sister’s neurologist.

PS As highlighted in the New England Journal of Medicine, the Phase II results for antegren did not show any side-effects that were different from placebo. Results for the Phase III study have not been released. It is my theory that message boards will be vulnerable to malicious rumors from antegren competitors until the Phase III results are released
PPS As I noted earlier, I am an investor in Elan, the drug company that developed antegren with Biogen, so I have a natural bias.
