    1. As far as treatment is concerned there is no such thing as risk free or one without side effects. Safety is a relative concept, regulatory agencies decide for us what is an acceptable risk, but I believe we should be able to decide this for ourselves.

    2. Yes, that makes sense, and my comment was clumsy. But surely high efficacy, low risk is possible?

  2. We need more information than 'Low' and "High'
    You cannot choose one of these without knowing what the risks are and what the benefits are

    1. These are arbitrary and will depend on what you perceive to be high risk vs low risk, greatest benefit vs small benefit. Not everyone thinks or assimilates information in the same way.

  3. There have been ~150 replies to this survey. Out of this we've received only one respondent from the Biotech front - be brave and voice your opinions!
