Has Death taken a holiday?
Has the Seeking Alpha Expert discovered how many deaths among CKD patients on dialysis there have been in the past 8 months? WE'd like to hear death has taken a holiday from this fact finding reporter. WE'd appreciate an update from someone with a propensity for updating, to shed light on the - CKD on Dialysis - stats. WE'RE sure AE is all for fair reporting of the facts.
WE'RE having a good time going through the 107 page FAERs. Send US more thanks.
I am the sole writer of this post.
No luck yet getting a response from Stinking Alpha's expert and you know he monitors Affy info.
We all appreciate Seeking Alpha's need to publish articles to bring Affy's price down. Correct me if I'm wrong but didn't we see a volume spike just BEFORE one of these articles hit?
By the way I used WE US in homage to AE's talent in doing the same.

Ok, this is a different patient than the one earlier, and shows the concomitant epogen. I think you touched on it before, why isn't epogen suspect. Possibly/probably because omontys was the administration at the time of the event occurrence. However, that doesn't take into account the possibility of epogen still being in the body and omontys adding to the amount, producing a dangerous oversupply of this type drug. Just a possibility though. I doubt they would've administered omontys too soon after the last epogen administration. But you never know. I do see coreg is also on the list of this one.
Is there more info on patient 9095316? Is there something besides an s notation next to Omontys indicating Omontys was the cause of death? Was there a mention of a catheter?

Where's the notation of the concomitant administration? Or is this a different case? Also, on coreg,
"Patients with hepatic impairment should not take Coreg. Care should be taken if the patient is taking other drugs, especially those that affect blood pressure and glucose levels as these may interact with Coreg and produce hypotension or low glucose blood levels. Severe exacerbation of angina, heart attack and ventricular arrhythmias has been reported in angina patients following the abrupt discontinuation of therapy with beta-blockers like Coreg. Effectiveness of COREG (carvedilol) in patients younger than 18 years of age has not been established. There are no adequate and well-controlled studies in pregnant or breastfeeding women; Coreg may be used during pregnancy or breastfeeding only if the potential benefit justifies the potential risk to the fetus or infant.
