This is the first that I heard this -- I have hope again! Alex told me I'm at the top of the chart pile but when I heard clinical trial I figured I'd be disqualified -- am atypical non-clinically definite and have had past brain trauma.
About the different specialities of docs...in the last two years I've seen a stunning amount of docs. The Rheumatologist and now, my primary Internist, are more willing to look outside the box than the Neurologists. A very funny bunch they are, especially the MS specialists. It's as if the unknown/unpredictable nature of MS has instilled a deep sense of futility in them. So, they are wary of deviating from a path defined by outside standards.
Johnson, that was an incredible vignette. OMG, if those Gaza Strips folks can keep it together what's your problem? Wow.
Again, congrats Prof and thanks for sharing this info about the study.
