You made couple great points which could form the basis for success on appeal. While I am not familiar with the Friedewald Equation, I trust your familiarity and what you say makes sense.
Where you really crystallize the Judge's screw-up is with the Lovaza comparison. As you say, if Lovaza the mixture of EPA and DHA lowered trigs, but raised LDL, then how is it obvious that EPA would lower trigs but not raise LDL?
Judge Du (@ page 60 of 70) relies heavily on the Mori study in 2000 (59 patients) for the proposition that it was known that EPA decreases trigs without raising LDL, while DHA raises LDL. What is your rebuttal to the Judge's reliance on Mori? Given your expertise, any feedback would help my understanding from a legal perspective.
