Dr Lalezari sent this email to Kush Dhody after receiving a response from Jeff Murray at the FDA:
Please see Jeff Murray's bizarre response to the email Nader asked me to send last night. They do not seem to appreciate a pattern of cytokine reduction, immune restoration and clinical improvement. Without sounding too condescending, I really think we need the simpler and easier to understand graphics that Jonah can put together.
One point of clarity-Jeff claims that our 7 pts did not fit the definition of "critically ill". First I am not sure why it matters whether they were critically (intubated) or severely ill. But second, how many of our 7 patients were, in fact, in the ICU and/or intubated?
