Reply To: GBS/CIDP Survey

Jethro, you haven’t provided any facts on what survey you did five years ago, how it was conducted, which organizations you tried to interest in it, or what their exact responses were, so you seem to be inviting readers here to draw a conclusion based on essentially no information at all.

My conclusion is this: no valid conclusions of a general nature can be drawn from a study which has not been designed and conducted according to sound scientific method, so organizations which declined interest in it did so because they thought an amateur study to be a distraction of little or no value to their purpose. I don’t fault any organization for upholding standards of research.

And by the way, speaking of scientific research, it is well established that the incidence of GBS is the same as between those who have been vaccinated for influenza and those who have not.
