While still a long way from clinical trials, this is a good start to a process that could provide some solid scientific evidence that clinical trials may be waranted.

It will also possibly help ensure that anyone from the rock who goes for the 'liberation' treatment abroad will have follow-up once they are back on the rock.

Newfoundland Rocks! What a superb example for Newfoundland to set as they prepare to host this week's Health Minsters Conference.

My only concern is that the study will be led by neurologists. Where are the VS and IR?

A big plus is the Observational Study. I think that's a first and one which people with MS have been calling for.

When will the Big Three of Ontario, Alberta and British Columbia finally embarrassed by the smaller provinces to get on board?!?
