    Default MVD - EPIC Study

    My little Murphy is a part of the Epic study. Just wondered if anyone on the forum is part of it too?

    Wow just had a read through. Thanks Nicki.
    Going to try to withdraw Murphy from the trial and stop his vetmedin/placebo tablet straight away.

    Murphy'sMom,

    You may want to discuss with your vet about making you fully aware of the current state of research, and potential negatives of before including you in a clinical trial. While these studies are critical to the advancement of medicine (both animal and human), you have a right to be informed beforehand and to opt out of trials based on this information.

    I never got informed of negative effects of the trial... I am going to call cardiologist on Monday to discuss trial some more... In the 9 months murphy has been on the trial the only thing that has changed is his bpm for his heart. Hoping his tablet is the placebo.

    I am sure he will try to talk you out of dropping out. So be prepared with some print outs of those quotes from other cardiologists and those research journal articles.
