– I have not yet received a response to my letter.
– This professor cataloged by the board of the faculty of health as “UNSATISFACTORY ” (written in capital letters) already presented two posters and a lecture on the event Evidence Live 2015 organized by the University of Oxford and the British Medical Journal (BMJ).
– The posters and the conference were presented with a clear institutional affiliation to the University of Valle.(1-3)
– At no time during this event I mentioned the facts described in the open letter to the academic community of the Universidad del Valle: Everyone gives what they have.
1- Evidence Live 2015 slides: (1) US phase 3 ClinicalTrials.gov records (2002-2012); (2) Two very dangerous ideas.
2- Hierarchical levels of evidence based medicine are incorrect: Evidence Live 2015 (poster).
3- Basic and clinical pharmacology of the “uroselective” α blocker tamsulosin: a critical analysis: Evidence Live 2015 (poster).

The content of this response could fall in three possibilities:
I. Public apologies by the Health Faculty Council: This is my suggested response. Furthermore, I expect a very interesting, well-written and cogent letter – please write this apology in English because this matter is now being actively discussed outside Colombia.
II. Counterargument and refutation of my demands: I think that extraterrestrial life will be discovered…
