Rapid responses are electronic comments to the editor. They enable our users to debate issues raised in articles published on bmj.com. A rapid response is first posted online. If you need the URL (web address) of an individual response, simply click on the response headline and copy the URL from the browser window. A proportion of responses will, after editing, be published online and in the print journal as letters, which are indexed in PubMed. Rapid responses are not indexed in PubMed and they are not journal articles. The BMJ reserves the right to remove responses which are being wilfully misrepresented as published articles.
Successful treatment of rheumatoid and psoriatic arthritis has been achieved with a daily intake of 5ml fish oil and 2.4gm E-304 (a TNFa inhibitor - aka ascorbyl palmitate). The response has been relief in a few days in many cases without the side effects of methotrexate. Our charity is anxious to find an interested party to take this serendipitous discovery to trial and NHS use.
