This was apparently just before Xmas - sorry if it`s already been posted, but I`ve only just seen it.

Quote from PeterMac:

Let us hope he doesn't change his mind half way through the trial

"When I said in the previous report that Group 1 had been given the placebo, I now wish to make it clear that this was Group 2,
In view of that the previous report which found that the drug in question was of no effect, can now be seen to be 100% effective in all cases,
and should be patented and licensed without delay . . .

Easy really, with a track record like his and hers.
----------------------
From John McCann  linked in:

AstraZeneca
integrated healthcare specialist
AstraZeneca
2002 – May 2011 (9 years)
Initially as GP rep then as IHS(Integrated Healthcare Specialist)in CV/diabetes products

So first time I've heard  of a drug being 100% effective, puts paid to all those warnings on side  effects when you buy so much as a few aspirins.

Further by a great coincidence diabetes was just what brother John's firm was promoting/producing?

Big Pharma has Big connections in political spheres I've been told.  pale

I don't know of PM's quote above pertains to diabetes research but Linked in  lists JMcC  still at work in pharma.

Incidentally the remark above puzzles me. It's surely not up to a dr. supervising a drug trial to  say it should be licenced AND patented?  Surely that's the job of the pharma manufacturer.

Back to the 100 % success rate - imo such a result should result in another trial with possibly larger nrs.

One may also wonder how it was that Dr. gerry confused two groups. Had it been a multi group effort, perhaps. Was the  other group a 100% failure.?

I smell a rodent.  scratch

GM has got quite good at this funding malarkey.

Persuading everyone and anyone to depart with cash.

How the hell he still works for the NHS I will never know.

Although not for much longer I predict.

The NHS are loathe to get rid of anyone and they wouldn't be able to sack him without good reason.

This research might be the equivalent of putting him in a corner with some paper and a packet of crayons - it keeps him quiet and causes the fewest problems IMO.

Does GM actually treat patients anymore?

I expect he does, that`s if any member of the public is prepared to talk to him. He is shown as a Consultant Cardiologist and Honorary Senior Lecturer

Tigger is that quote about mixing the groups and hence the data from an actual report written by GM? Do you have a copy you could pm me? I have a background in pharmacological research and that quote is screaming professional suicide. No one would/could take anyone seriously after publushing that (that was a typo but it's rather apt I think) If he has published that retraction, he has at least come clean and there are many who wouldn't.

I've asked for the reference but haven't had it yet. My apologies if it's wrong , source on the same topic is JH as quoted above. Beginning to think I've quoted a joke. Very Happy

Totally agree with you as you can see from earlier posts.

GM's other work  which I've read is very basic. Especially the bit on sports medicine. The MRI study report is a joint effort.  Also very average imo. GM did not finish the year and left a month early . His entire medical career is back to front.  His expertise with patients can be seen in the film clip above.

The pharma connection via John McCann is of inerest though. Astrozeneca had or still has close connections with a pharma lab in Huelva. The large number of NHS related guests in PdL make a pharma freebie quite likely. Include also a few Finance experts - one expert on PFI, few industrials, somebody from Porton Down and I do feel that a swinging theory is highly unlikely.

We've been told that John McCann left his job as a representative for AstraZeneca for a position as one of the directors of the Madeleine Fund.

Another source says that AZ granted John McCann "indefinite leave as he plays a central role in the international campaign to find Madeleine."
http://www.pharmafield.co.uk/features/2007/04/MISSING-Madeline-McCann-age-4

Is it possible he could have been fired from AstraZeneca as a direct result of what happened in PDL, if there is an AstraZeneca connection to the events of that week? And the "quitting" or "leave" news was spin?

Or, if he initiated the leave - he wanted to distance himself from AstraZeneca...?

His LinkedIn profile says the following:

integrated healthcare specialist
AstraZeneca
2002 – May 2011 (9 years)
Initially as GP rep then as IHS (Integrated Healthcare Specialist) in CV/diabetes products

Key Account Manager
Bayer
May 2011 – Present (4 years) Glasgow, United Kingdom
Covering Greater Glasgow & Clyde,Ayrshire & Arran,Dumfries supporting projects in anticoagulation in patients at risk of VTE and treatment .

According to Enid O'Dowd, John McCann was Chairman of the fund until he resigned in July 2010.
http://www.mccannfiles.com/id405.html

Was he on leave from AstraZeneca from 2007 until 2010?
And then he quietly went back to work for them from 2010 to 2011?
Or did he ever actually go back to work for them?

Speculation only for the sake of argument. Nothing implied in terms of facts.

On his FB page J Mac lists his current job as KAM at Bayer. Past states AZ and Eli Lilly a pharma co with HQ in Indianapolis. In 2009 they were fined $515 million for illegally marketing Zyprexa, an atypical antipsychotic drug used in treatment of bipolar disorder and schizophrenia.

http://www.lilly.com/
After graduating from Glasgow in chemistry he moved to S Africa for 5 years. He then worked for EL based in Basingstoke from 87 to 92. He then joined Bayer for 10 years after which he was With AZ from 2002 till 2011. He seemed to be unemployed from Mar to Dec that year when he returned to Bayer where he is currently employed. 
His profile was presumably created pretty recently as there is nothing on it other than an employment timeline. 2015 is when his first posts appear.

ETA additional info.
