Comments for FDA General
1. General Comments Dear People: I am concerned enough for the potential of an extreme upturn in our population of auto immune disease: Arthritis, Multiple Sclerosis,chronic fatigue etc. I say this because when genes are modified it sets up the opportunity to develop new antigenic expression in the human host. It is felt by many that this expression of new antigens in the human will provoke antigen-antibody rejection type expression that will provoke or initiate the cascade into auto-immune disease. I urge MANDATORY LABELING as then our citizens can make their own choice. Alan D. Thal. M.D.
