    So, the IOM criteria which are diagnostic criteria are being used as research criteria. Why am I not surprised?

    Dr. Vernon has been consistent in her actions. She contacted most of the signatories to the letter to then Secretary Sebelius asking them whether they wished to disavow their protest against the IOM contract. But in the weeks that followed, the experts' letter urging that the CCC be adopted for research and clinical purposes garnered even greater support.

    It is also interesting to note that the one Dr. who listened to Vernon was Dr. Bateman. Dr. Bateman is now working in tandem with SMCI on the research from the half a million dollar grant received from the Falk Medical Trust. which is now using the IOM criteria. All the dots are starting to connect.
