in a public clinical trial on the effects of inhaled insulin causing lung cancer
Sentiment: Strong Sell
Most good doctors would probably recommend some sort of complicated lobotomy procedure for someone like you. However, I personally feel that ignorance is an incurable disease, Maybe you could join some kind of AA type group, designed for ignoramuses like yourself.
Almost every oral diabetic medication has a perceived cancer risk of some organ because clinical trials are done on a small sampling. Doctors rely on animal studies and there was zero lung cancer signals in animal studies. Your fear is unrealistic. In a clinical trial of Exubera two former smokers developed lung cancer and that was outside the expectations of one patient. That is the problem with small clinical trials and is why they are followed by larger clinical trials. At the Afrezza ADCOM, the FDA talked about Exubera for the first 20 minutes. The cancer study is because Exubera failed to do a study and because MNKD wishes to use this device to deliver other drugs. You don't get a ADCOM vote like that on a drug with a perceived lung cancer risk. The study is to rule out that risk which is almost zero.
