I would remind everyone that the scientific “evidence” provided by WADA expert witness, Dr James Cox, and noted by Chip in his book “removed nearly all remaining doubts in the minds of the CAS Panel” (that the sample tested at Bio21 was TB4)
The CAS decision stated that “the Panel was wholly convinced by the impressive evidence presented by Dr James Cox” (and it suited the desired outcome).
Cox demonstrated that of the 26 possible chemical compounds within Dr Vine’s margin of error only two were commercially available, Insulin and TB4. This was not challenged. It should have been.
The key term is “commercially available”. For any drug, biological to be marketed and sold in any country in the world then it must be either registered or listed with the National Regulatory Authority. In Australia this is the TGA, in the U.S. the FDA and in England the MHRA. For a substance to be registered or listed the company seeking the commercialisation of the substance must submit a full product dossier which, amongst many other elements, must contain irrefutable proof of efficacy and safety. These critical elements, along with the Quality System that supports the manufacture of that substance, must be independently reviewed and audited by the Regulator. Often this process can take years and cost millions of dollars. Companies only submit to this process if they are convinced their claims are valid and that the potential commercial gain is worth the up front costs.
Insulin is a well recognised, life saving peptide hormone which is registered globally. TB4 is NOT registered in any country in the world. If TB4 delivered the benefits claimed in the online advertising then every pharmaceutical company in the world would be all over it in terms of registration.
The TGA have now Scheduled TB4 because it is concerned about the false advertising and sales by Australian based companies. The TGA state that the limited data available on TB4 is unproven, that it is experimental, and use is a serious risk to health. The TGA and the Health Department are clamping down on these Australian based distributors but it won’t stop the importation from dubious overseas manufacturers.
Finally, given what I have just explained, it would be interesting to know the identities of the other 24 substances. I would suggest that these substances are experimental peptides (as is TB4). I know for a fact that the big pharma industry in the U.S. spend millions on synthesising peptides looking for that one peptide that possesses life saving antigenic properties. The potential commercial gain is worth the effort and cost.
This is another example of the poor science that has been prevalent throughout the saga. The google biochemists in the media and at ASADA continue to baffle the fans with their bullshite and the medical/scientific “experts” continue to sit on their hands to protect their precious reputations and the vested interests of their employers.
