Finding the Issues

One must look beneath the rhetoric (a.k.a. lies, deception and personality characterizations) to see the issues that are important.

Timely US patent granted

10/1/2020: A timely US patent was just granted for a skin disinfectant/sanitizer. The formulation is one that has a solution of water or alcohol that contains the proven virucidal reagent, protocatechuic acid for the SARS CoV2 virus.

The spray when it dries, unlike other sanitizers has long lasting effect as it leaves behind a invisible coating of the reagent that kills the virus on contact.

I have Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) application in to the FDA for such. It provides an addition means of mitigation of COVID19.

A spray bottle would be available with alcohol to sanitize the skin, plus add prevention to a mask or PPE.

The water vehicle would be used to spray one’s nose and mouth, the pathways of the virus to one’s lungs.

I am hoping for an early response to all the regulations. However, since this is a nutraceutical I am legally able to market without prior FDA approval. I have 10,000 bottles of each on order.

I will keep you posted on the progress.

Jerry Sloan; one of my first famous athlete patients

5/22/2020: I saw in the press that Jerry Sloan, famous basketball player passed away.

He was one of my first famous athlete patients to undergo arthroscopy in the mid 70’s. I remember it well as I was lecturing at a meeting in Chicago suburb and his agent arranged for me to come down town and perform a diagnostic arthroscopy under local anesthesia. I did not tell anyone where I went and as my custom I created no publicity. I forgot about it until today.

Malaria Drug? Yes or No?

5/22/2020: Malaria drug; yes or no? The results are based upon patient selection, the common denominator of medical treatment.

That is why reports and opinion are widely diverse on the use of hydroxychloroquine; yes or no. The latest today in very respected journal: Lancet.

The conclusion was no benefit and in fact worse results than not using it.

The subjects (research word for patients) were all sick enough to have been placed in the hospital. They were not patients who showed early symptoms of coronavirus infection. Those so sick they are hospitalized: NO!

Those treated early in the disease get a YES when this is the patient selection criteria.

Allow me to give you an analogy. Aspirin has been reported as beneficial as a preventative for heart disease. Aspirin is not the primary treatment for a patient hospitalized in heart failure.

Amazing Data Analysis

If you are looking for reason concerning the coronavirus, you will be surprised at this Politico report.

Mother Earth or Father God?

4/29/2020: I saw today that Michael Moore invoked the name of mother earth as controlling or affecting events in this world. If one is to accept mother earth, would it not be logical to at least grant a similar position of authority to Father God?
