I recently pointed out an American Heart Association publication's surprisingly credulous view of chelation therapy. Now there's more from Cardiobrief citing this quote of none other than Eugene Braunwald:
Eugene Braunwald gave a strong endorsement to TACT2 in the press release: “The results of TACT were both surprising and intriguing. I am very pleased that TACT2 is building on these findings to determine if they can be replicated in diabetic patients who have experienced a myocardial infarction – a particularly high risk group of patients in need of effective therapy.”
I've ranted on this extensively before and will only restate here that of all major clinical trials I can recall in my long career TACT is one of the most conflicted. It's beyond merely controversial. Anyone interested in digging deeper on this issue should read this article.
