It's depressing that the company behind Tovaxin ran out of steam after so much promise, but it looks as though it is once again ramping up for a Phase 3 trial. It sounds promising.Lyon wrote:I absolutely do.CaptBoo wrote:so perhaps you can understand my desire to pass that information along to others that may be in a similar situation.
My wife was diagnosed at age 46 (which statistically points towards a more aggressive than normal MS course) and had just been diagnosed a couple of months before entering the Tovaxin IIb clinical trial in which the entrance MRI showed a new enhancing lesion in addition to the "at least seven) lesions she was diagnosed with (which also made it seem that her MS course was going to be aggressive).
In the five years since her diagnosis she hasn't experienced anything else "MS" and I personally feel that it HAS to be due to the Tovaxin...BUT like you I'm not in a position of being able to prove it and therefore can't honestly and morally stand on the rooftops and shout to the glory of Tovaxin.
Other than honesty and morality I guess we're not so different.

If you disagree with someone, please succintly state why and let it go at that. Point, counterpoint, counter-counter point, etc. is not useful-- the reality is that after the first disagreement, you will rarely convince another of something they feel strongly about unless you have shocking new information to share. The drawn-out debates also turn people off from reading the messages in the first place. If you really have to get something off your chest, please send that person a Private Message-- there is no need to have a long argument in public.
