An update on Goat Serum from the MS Society in the UK

What is goat serum?
28.09.04

This treatment uses antibodies from the serum (the fluid portion of blood) of goats that have been inoculated with a variety of vaccines, to generate neutralising antibodies.
Antibodies are proteins produced by white blood cells in response to an antigen (foreign protein), to destroy/neutralise the antigen. The strong anti-inflammatory component of the serum is thought by researchers to be 'potentially useful' in the treatment of MS.

Evidence
Much anecdotal evidence seems to exist in support of a beneficial effect in MS but there is no research evidence or published information available to back up the anecdotal claims.

Side effects appear to be extremely limited although controlled research is necessary before conclusions can be reached.

A large number of people with MS have been receiving goat serum, via informed consent. This means they are receiving it through a GP but are NOT part of a controlled trial. No more people can receive this drug via informed consent.

Clinical trials

A controlled trial (where half of the participants are receiving the treatment and half are on placebo (a dummy treatment) is ongoing at St George's Hospital in South London - this should provide us with the research evidence that is currently lacking. 80 participants are involved, all have Secondary Progressive MS. Recruitment for this trial has stopped - no more referrals can be made to this trial. No results are expected from this trial until June 2005.


A second controlled trial occuring in Oxford, involving participants with optic neuritis, is due to complete in November this year. However, there will be no published results for six months. Recruitment for this trial has stopped.


A third trial is being planned, with a focus on acute relapses in MS. This trial is awaiting ethical approval - once received, information regarding recruitment to this trial will be posted up.
Availability
This drug cannot be obtained from anywhere else, and is not available to the general public.

hi folks
after reading emerging viruses by dr. horowitz. aids was creaated this way. they used a cow to mix the bugs into one. i read about a farmer infecting a cow with whatever and then consumming the clostrum
to treat the patient,i've also read about introducing a patients blood to
the chicken through scratches and then consuming the eggs as to absorb
the antibodies the chickens system created in responce to the patients blood.
and people are hesitent about stem cells

what a world

Hi,

There is an Aimspro Patient Lobby Group who are currently petitioning for signatures to try and raise awareness of this treatment
