I am not of the opinion that he is malicious or a liar, I am just of the opinion that he plays the fool to the Hedgefund Kings. Only instead of the jester telling the king what he wants to hear, the kings are feeding the advice to the jester.
He then takes their opinion and publishes it, and the public buys it up and the HF masters make a fortune
There is no way to extrapolate from 2011 to 2012 since all MD's are delaying their Benlysta Scripts until January when the new Jcode is effective to facilitate reimbursement.
So the thinking public knows to expect stagnant or lower Benlysta sales this Q and a ramp up as doc's write scripts in January and an acceleration in late Feb-Mar as they see the timely reimbursements.
Idiotic. I am suffering from immense pain due to my lupus... I cannot get out of bed. I am crying everynight in pain. I go to my doctor and he tells me I have to wait 4 more months to try Benlysta because his reimbursement time will drop from 7 days to 2 days because of the Jcode. You are all grasping at straws. Very few have lupus, less than 40,000 people in the country.
