Dear Sam and all,

Unsubstantiated claims about non-licensed drugs which have no
biologically plausible mechanism of action are very common and repeating
them leads to the danger of lending a spectre of truth to claims of
efficacy (which probably is limited to increasing the bank balance of
the prescribing clinic/doctor). If there are any randomised, double
blind, placebo controlled trials of the use of Carnivora which
demonstrate its efficacy I would be very interested but until then its
best to leave quackery well alone. Not only will the use of unproven
drugs endanger the lives of patients it will also endanger the survival
of the CPs from which the drug is made.
