You try to shift the spotlight off the quote I made reference to by throwing in someone else's statement....however, I was not referring to anyone else's remarks other than the person who made this crappy inuendo:Dr. Lawrence Steinman, one of the inventors of Tysabri, has said on more than one occasion that this drug was going to cause problems such as PML... Other researchers also stated the drug was marketed too quickly before any kind of long term safety data was completed. Would you call their comments "defaming" as well?
[emphasis added in bold].I find it interesting that Biogen has teamed up with a pharma company to look for a treatment for PML. Wondering if they expect a number of cases to show up in MS patients who use Tysabri.
If you can't see the crappy innuendo implied by this poster, who shall remain nameless so as not to embarass him further, then you are more over the edge than I originally suspected.
I am no great fan of Biogen, but I am of Tysabri, and I am sick of the lies, mis-statements, false innuendos, and mis-truths thrown around to satisfy some perveted revenge upon a drug that offers hope to so many suffering MS patients.Biogen made a total mess of introducing the drug for MS patients and that is the main reason that you are finding it an absolute mess in trying to get approved to use it.
Further, if you knew anything about the TOUCH program enrollment forms (which you obviously don't), you wouldn't make such an absolutely ludicrous statement.The docs and clinics that will eventually use it have to cover every possible angle to prevent any possible legal action against them
Geeeeeee, ya think it could be to protect their own drug Rituxan? Duuh.At the same time they are going after a PML solution
I couldn't care less what you say about Biogen, and what I do with my energy is my business, and certainly none of yours.It may be better to concentrate your energy on getting approved for Tysabri as opposed to worrying what I say about Biogen.
In fact, take your own advice and concentrate on helping your wife who has MS as opposed to spreading FUD about Tysabri and/or telling me what I should/should not be doing.
Good evening to you.
