Yesterday, Reeves was the ring master of what turned out to be an “Ampligen love-in” at the Health and Human Services event. Not an insignificant fact when you consider that this was the CFSAC's first meeting under the Obama Administration's and that the HHS is at the top of the food chain and rules the FDA, the CDC, The Social Security Administration, National Institute of Health, HRSA, Etc."
"As some of you may already know, Ampligen, is an experimental immunomodulatory double stranded RNA drug developed by HEMISPHERx Biopharma (Amex: HEB). In addition, it is the only drug in any pipeline of any pharmaceutical company in the world which aims to become the standard treatment for CFS."
"Reeves showed slide after slide with a diagrams and lists. Almost always near the top of those slides were references to HEB and Ampligen. “This is our current model. You see the brain in the middle. Around the brain, stress is involved, traumatic childhood stressors, allostatic load maladaptation to stressors, genes interact with one’s reaction to stress...”
I BELIEVE THERE MAY BE TOP DOWN PRESSURE TO APPROVE... Dr.Reeves is at the cdc, and obviously carries some weight (political)!
(also keep in mind ampliagen is a new type of drug for the fda to review--no doubt the decision has been delayed this long...).They ARE UNDER PRESSURE to approve even if FOR restricted use.
“This is our current model. You see the brain in the middle. Around the brain, stress is involved, traumatic childhood stressors, allostatic load maladaptation to stressors, genes interact with one’s reaction to stress...”
Well, with a model like that....
The point Reeves was making is that CFS is an NO cyclic diseease with oxidative stress as it's fuel. He was comparing the latest results of the large CDC study on CFS in Altanta wit HEB's foolishness. Look at the study. What Reeves is saying is HEB is off it's rocker.
In fact as a result of the CDC study in CFS, Pfizer will be doing a PIII to establish efficacy claims for iy=t's drug Solucortef in treating attenuated Cortisol Levels found in the CDC Study:
