What are you talking about, are we even on the same post? If you read it you must not have comprehended what it said. It was a piece advocating for patients, you are just pivoting again. You talk yourself into a corner and change direction because you can't adequately explain yourself. That's OK, but sometimes it's just best NOT to post.View Thread
How did you get that? I'm guessing you did not even read this so let me highlight what was said about patients like it was a headline so it will resonate with you;
Who loses? Patients. Few have the competence to interpret the disclosures, and because of the new rules, they'll have fewer new drugs. Hundreds of millions of dollars once applied to innovation will shift to "Sunshine" management.
Tom says the patient is the ultimate loser, never blamed a thing on the patients. He says few are competent to interpret the data, much like you were when you insisted "ownership rights" were not reported when in fact they're all over and listed as royalties. He is saying this is a problem for patients, not their fault, understand?
I see you don't read my posts any better than you read your own before you post. Maybe you could spend less time asking the same rhetorical questions over and over and spend more time reading what you're responding to.View Thread
