Just did a report on Avonex and BIIB...finally got it right on tysabri being a different class of MS drug with "RARE", side effects....What he did not mention was that Tysabri was used in conjuntion with Avonex when the neuorologic symptoms occured. One of these days these guys will get the whole story straight and then we fly...like we deserve to and the patients can benefit again. BOL
<<One of these days these guys will get the whole story straight>>
They need better staffers and researchers. Do you really believe that they write their own copy? All that they do is edit down what is put in front of them.
Everybody on this board should send him an email informing him of the full story of the combo effect being the main suspect.
If all of us keep after these reporters who report incomplete stories, they can't ignore all of us.
"Everybody on this board should send him an email informing him of the full story of the combo effect being the main suspect."
He's not getting paid to tell the truth.
Look at what happened to ramer when he wasn't towing the line on VIOXX, he was removed from the Kudlow and Kramer show...pronto.
I would suggest that you contact the SEC, but I'm afraid that won't work either.
Sad time in America's life.
The financial press has made a mess of this story since time zero, in no little part assisted by some of the professional "study" types in the medical community. I have yet to see any piece put out on this situation that has not had major problems. Either they have gotten the basic facts wrong, have used incorrect words (e.g. withdrawn instead of suspended) or just plain made the mistake of ignoring the dual therapy issue entirely.Its no small wonder that folks have been pushed into selling this. Oh well. (As an aside, I once tried to get an author of a WSJ story on MCI to correct their piece where they had confused free cash flow with cash on hand. No such luck. But say, whats a 4 or 5 billion bucks or a 250% error between friends anyway..)
This is so much garbage. What Kernan got right is that this is really non-news. People have known forever that beta-interferon causes liver damage. Any neuro worth his salt does liver panels from time to time on any patient who is on that therapy and who is demonstrating questionable symptoms. There is no free lunch in regard to any medication and we all know it. I'm no fan of the interferons, but they do benefit many people. This whole thing is idiotic.
hey you clueless dumbell, what does avonex have to do with T and its 2 cases of PML? FDA action today on all MS drugs that go after the same target as T speech very very bad for T and this class of drugs.
Kernan is a punk. I saw how he tried to slide BIIB around the truth then try to slime ELN. CNBC must hold a lot of shares of BIIB and Tysabri competes with Avonex which is questionable and not as effective when it stands alone then hurts Tysabri when taken together. This slant has Cramers influence all over it.
