The FDA forbids further discussion of the Orbasone. A block will be placed on the word. Do not respond to this post.

Scott -- With all due respect and appreciation to you as the founder of this board, I can say with complete confidence that the FDA does not have the right to stop us from discussing different forms of PF treatment. The fact that a given form of treatment is not FDA approved does not prohibit us from talking about it. Of course, we cannot conspire with others to break the law, but that is entirely different from simply discussing issues. For example, it is legal for people to discuss the merits of medical marijuana use, but it is ILLEGAL for someone to offer marijuana for sale.

I would be interested in knowing what precipitated your comments, and stand ready to assist if a genuine legal issue is presented (I've practiced law for 13 years).

I agree with Brian, but I am taking the safest route. My letter to the FDA will ask if this is one of the requirements.

Scott, can you explain what exactly is your relationship with the FDA that prohibits the use of the word 0rbasone here?

(PS--Figured out how to beat the censor! tee hee!)

Scott has no relationship with the FDA. I have and always will support ESWT. I wish I could talk more about this but at this time I don't want to create any hardships for heelspurs.com or Scott Roberts. I consider him a friend.

I remember some time ago Scott mentioning something about writing the FDA for a letter so he could or you could advertise the item on his site after the Healthronic thing fell through. Maybe it has to do with the letter he wrote to them.
