Dr. Clay Siegall Posts about Terrelle and Medical Breakthroughs on His Official Blog

Medical Blog


Clay Siegall is the present Chief Executive Officer of Seattle Genetics. Recently, he blogged about Terrelle Pryor, a wide receiver (American Football). His March 7, 2017, post states that football giants like Eagles, Forty-Niners, Titans, and Steelers were portraying interest in the player. This is because Terrelle had impressive scores in his first year as a wide receiver with 77 catches (1,007 yards).

Siegall’s post on the National Public Radio reported that Medical Breakthroughs usually do not prove out. Besides, the study found out that just approximately 50% of the medical findings, which were drafted in the 199 English-language newspapers, held up when they were tested in further studies. This problem is partly brought about by journalists who usually focus on the unexpected and new findings, which medical journals happily promote.
