This can be one huge study (more than that). Thank you Kuwait for leading the way. I hope our country is watching this space..

What frustrates me, is that you hear the excuses from doctors, societies and anyone who would have to approve a new treatment being done and funded and the scepticism that says "we just don't know enough yet", and people are getting this done. You're practically having your research paid for you by the patients themselves (and now possibly the Kuwait govt)! Monitor people, research them, find out what you don't know. Don't just stand back and wash your hands of it because you don't know... FIND OUT! People are having this done. Find out what you need to know to stand behind it from those having it done.

Well a small number of us are going to 10 Downing St on May 5th to see if we can make some noise. Lots say it is not going to do anything the day before the election, but who knows we are doing this with a big demonstration in ottawa canada at the same time, if interested visit our facebook site

At ten per day, 365 days per year, it will take...nearly two years to get everyone? Or longer if ten per day does not include Saturday/Sunday. Beyond amazing though.

:) :D :lol:

This is SOOOOOOOOOO HUGE!

What a great find GiCi! Is there any way you (or a moderator) can change the name of this thread to Entire Country of Kuwait now being Liberated! or something to that effect?

faith, hope & love

From the Kuwait Times...


I read the newspaper article. Sounds like the liberation procedure has been shut down.

Is there another link that discusses all Kuwaiti ms'ers receiving liberation?

This is so unethical... what about Biogen's "geographical expansion" plans? ( http://www.sec.gov/Archives/edgar/data/ ... efa14a.htm , p.8 ) :twisted:

Btw: Kuwait has a population of 2.75 million and 6000 MSers. If I did the maths right (I'm not very good at that), that's 218 in 100.000. Far more than Europe, Canada or USA. Is the "geographical paradigm" on MS one that accompanies the autoimmune theory on their way to the dump of medical history?

Sorry but at the end of the kuwait time article it says that

'ministry's ordering the suspension of the catheterization procedures.'

I just don't understand... Where are those 10 people/day?

Could it be just a typo :? 600MSers sounds more likely.
