I keep seeing reference to the Rodman & Renshaw Eighth Annual Healthcare Conference - it's more than neurology, but all the drugs companies involved in MS e.g. Acorda are attending. Biogen have still to provide details on the Phase II Rituximab RR trial and they were due to present the results at a conference - so this might be it.

I think the conference is in New York. If anyone attends, look out for a Canadian man of a certain age wearing his "Down with Biogen" T-shirt.

If you click on the above websites for Opexa's website and look at the video presentations of how the drug is proposed to work, it is very interesting. I hope they are correct in their theory, and this treatment works quite well.
Take care, Ewizabeth Previously Avonex, Rebif & Copaxone RRMS ~Tysabri, 31 infusions, ended 9/09. Starting Copaxone 12/09, waiting for Cladribine to be approved in 2010.

This presentation, which was freely available on the web, has now been converted to an easy to read and print pdf format. It's now available at http://www.msu.edu/~lyonro/Opexa06.pdf for the time being as Lyon has graciously offered to host it on the web. Hopefully, it will answer many of the same questions that keep coming up on this forum.

Enjoy, NHE 8)
