Episode 139: PREMIUM – Irritating information about IBS and Cold-FX

In episode 139, James and Mike and Tina Korowynk talk about the available evidence for therapies for irritable bowel syndrome and our good friend and colleague Mike Kolber drops in for a few minutes at the end “runs through” the reality of the situation. We then talk about the recent publication of the largest trial of Cold-FX and find that what wasn’t shown to be statistically different is at least if not more important than what was shown to be statistically different.
