Robbie, I think they mean primary progessive MS which recently failed to respond to Rituxan, which depletes B cells. Obviously it's not just B cell inflammation in progressive forms of the disease. Could you enroll in the probiotic/worm trials in Wisconsin? I think they are struggling to recruit. The link is in the General Discussion section.

Surprise, Surprise!! I bet that they are having a REAL struggle recruiting people.

I imagine that the progressive types are too far gone for this therapy anyway.

The worm one said diagnosed less than 2 years and no CRABS taken, I believe.

That doesn't fit many, does it? Maybe the problem in recruiting is more from that than the wormy thing. That was the criteria for the blood draw I did for Accelerated Cure in March. They were having trouble getting people there, too.

What does this say about our healthcare system? This is an excellent article, explaining 2 promising experimental treatments. Yet its focus is really on stock market speculation & big pharma profits!
I use google news set to multiple sclerosis & regularly search for campath articles and had not seen this one. Thank you for posting!

To be fair that was a business web site.

But I know what you mean, I have the same alert and it's nearly always stockmarket news.
