I sent a comment to Andrea Rossi on the Journal of Nuclear Physics providing links to the recent data published by Alexander Parkhomov, and the video of his experiment, and asked him what his thoughts were regarding. Parkhomov’s apparent success in replicating the Rossi effect.
This was Rossi’s response:

At this point I suppose I can say that the replication of Prof. Parkhomov is serious, very serious.
I am delighted of the fact that an expert of the art, using what has been published, has been apparently able to replicate the Effect. I think this is a good thing for all.
Parkhomov is a product of the Russian scientific school, and I am honoured to have been studied from professionals belonging to that level of excellence. Now we have a mainstream scientific environment Prof, not confined in the LENR entity, that has replicated seriously my work.
Rossi always seems to be very pleased to have his work taken seriously by those who he considers to be qualified professionals in whatever field they work. There could be an argument made that Parkhomov’s apparent success could be detrimental to the business interests of Industrial Heat, but Rossi doesn’t seem to be too concerned about that here. On the other hand, having his work verified by a qualified scientist could be helpful for Industrial Heat’s patent application, and also raise the status of Rossi as the inventor of a revolutionary energy device.
The two meetings held this week in Russia have shown that Parkhomov’s work seem to have raised the profile of LENR and Rossi himself among certain scientists. I think this can only be good news for those who are hoping to see LENR emerge into the mainstream of society.
