OLDSCHOOL: re drug trials, more: OldSchool

Well, first of all, where the heck is this Reboxetine available - Europe? Just curious. It apparently has gotten a lot of press here in the US, but the first I've heard of it is on this board.

Second, you spoke of drug trials - what is the difference between a CLOSED trial and an OPEN trial? You said that in a closed trial you probably wouldn't reboxetine but a placebo instead. And you said that if it had been an open trial, you probably would have gone for it (meaning you would have had a better chance of getting reboxetine or you definitely would have gotten it?) Can you please explain the difference between a CLOSED and an OPEN trial? Thanks.

Third, you said that when Reboxetine was up for FDA review a year or two ago and everybody was excited about it that but it got rejected and the rumor was that Eli Lilly was trying to get some similar NE selective AD on the market and there was politics involved, so Reboxetine got blocked.

I take it that Eli Lilly is NOT the manufacturer of Reboxetine, so which company is? Just curious.

Thanks for answering these questions.
