If I am not mistaken, fumeric acid is the basis for BG-12, which is currently in trials. I have been offered the option to join one here in australia, and am interested in getting it prescribed off label. However, I dont remember reading spectacular results from any previous trials (ie not as good as tovaxin, more similar to current treatments)Smilingface wrote:My neurologist has suggested fumaric acid which I plan to take once I find my antibiotic balance. Any thoughts on fumaric acid? My limited understanding is that fumaric acid increases a T2 response which is favorable in MS patients because it allows improved regulation of the unfavorable T1 response.

So I will guess that your script is written as "Fumaric acid"? I will be looking into if this is something I would want to add to my regimines.Smilingface wrote:Fumaric acid has been prescribed for me 240mg/3x a day.
On monday I see a neuro regarding the FTY720 and BG-12 trials. I will hopefully remember to ask if he knows anything with regards to antibiotics and BG-12, and get back to you.Smilingface wrote:My neurologist did warn me that there is not much information on how fumaric acid might interact with the anti-biotics I am on, but he sure did not say anything about the BG-12 trials.
