No one can enter the Unit 1, 2, and 3 reactor buildings at the power plant because radiation levels are so high, he said, adding that pools and streams of water contaminated by high-level radiation are being found throughout the plant, crippled by a killer earthquake and tsunami March 11." Unbelievable.
We have no idea what may or may not be actually happening right now. There are a lot of possibilities, such as: 1) There may not be any Prochymal of the right strength available. 2) Our government may not allow any Prochymal to be used until the FDA approves. 3) The DoD ARS program has run into problems that have not been adequately addressed and more testing must be done. 4) The Japanese government does not want any outside help if they have another potential drug that could possibly help. 5) Osiris does not want to risk failure if it does not adequately work. 6)The big pharmaceuticals are preventing Osiris from proceding through various legal actions to protect their own pipelines. 7) Maybe it is too late to effectively administer Prochymal. 8) The correct dosage amount, strength and frequency are still unknown. 9) If there are insufficient supplies, who gets it and who doesn't? 10) Or something else or a combination of any of the above.
Common sense says "Lives are at stake, we need to take action now, even if Prochymal is not FDA approved". There is nothing to lose, except for the loss of life.
