How good is the Pfizer vex in practice? Ask them—or any Expert or ruler—and they will say…well, let’s not ask them what they would say. It would only encourage them to tell more “noble” lies.
We can recall back to last December, when the first safety and efficacy data was released by the FDA for the Pfizer vex based on their (Pfizer’s) controlled trials. They were touting numbers like 95% for efficacy. Which sounds terrific. But I said this about that huge effect:
As I’ve said before, trial numbers in medical experiments always look better than real-life numbers, and I’d bet good money these numbers will shrink. I have no idea by how much. I’d be (pleasantly) surprised if in real life it was much north of 50%.
Let’s see if we can count that prediction as a victory.
