Have to love it. One of the ms specialists i talked to is involved in a lot of trials and has been for a few decades. Said lemtrada was the only drug she had seen that actually helped people and now she cant use it. The fact i can get on a plane and fly literally in any direction and get it, hell drive 2 of them, but cant get it where i have "cadillac" insurance (in other words insurance that is actually useable) boggles the mind.

Squiffy, you have made a mistake: lemtrada is not injectable: it is an infusion.

I think that it has opened up a new window in the life of people having multiple sclerosis. Whenever, I read this news, I really very happy. Researchers are always ready to invent the new things.
