Well a lousy workout and weather today but a/ I stuck the bike trainer out for 42 minutes no matter how lousy it felt so I get points….right??!!
and b/ there was literally about a 40 second clearing this morning when you could see the Olympic mountain range so catching that improved the rest of this socked-in day immensely 😉
Other good things that happened despite it being Monday –
Who would believe it – the FDA finally thought the benefits of a drug should outweigh it’s “serious and potentially fatal safety issues” – woohoo!! 😉
“FDA has taken the position that Genzyme has not submitted evidence from adequate and well-controlled studies that demonstrate the benefits of Lemtrada outweigh its serious adverse effects,”
FDA staff determined in a November report that Lemtrada has “serious and potentially fatal safety issues” including risk of cancer and autoimmune and thyroid diseases. – (Bloomberg)
I especially liked this decision because this drug had been pulled off the market for it’s off-label use for MS so that they could put it back on at a much higher price later.
