And you accuse pro-vax people of fear mongering.   Really.  License to kill, huh?
I'm a bit leery of the lead author of this paper.  She (or he) seems to only publish papers that have a strong anti-vax agenda.   Here are a bunch of her publications:     Too Fast or Not Too Fast: The FDA's Approval of Merck's HPV Vaccine Gardasil. Tomljenovic L, Shaw CA. J Law Med Ethics. 2012 Sep;40(3):673-81. doi:...
Yes, it IS.  You are testing the antigenic substance in the vaccine, not the preservatives.  That's the whole point.   The only difference in the placebo and the true drug/vaccine (depending on what's being tested) should be the active substance.  That way, if there's an adverse effect, you know it's from the active substance, not from the preservatives, carrier substances, etc.  
Well, it really doesn't matter what people "feel" a placebo is. A placebo has a definition that I posted above.
    A placebo is an inactive substance, by definition.  If they call it a placebo, it's a placebo.  What do you want them to test it against?  Nothing?  Then it's not a double blind study.   Oh, here's a study testing the rotavirus vaccine against a placebo.http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16394298   Here's another. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22520136  I found 195.   Here's the Cochrane review for the haemophilus vaccine- it shows 6 studies that were either...
  Not true.   http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22959989   http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23032417   http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22926209   http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22796139   I'm not going to link anymore, but you get the idea.  If you do a pubmed search with the terms "vacccines and double blind placebo controlled trial" you get 1002 results.  So much for vaccines "never" being tested against a placebo.
Oh, thanks for letting me in on the joke! You're so funny! :eyeroll:
I'm so glad to hear that you are being followed by a neuromuscular specialist. Good luck making your decision.
  Oh, you mean here, where you edited your post AFTER my response?         Luckily, I quoted you in my response, and I'll do it again.           So, thank YOU for playing. 
Yup. Meds get used off label all the time. And no, I never said I gave it orally for staph. Only for c diff. It had no oral bioavailability.
