A new drug...

I hope this wasn't posted earlier. Dr. Warren is the Dr. that dx me. Ithought he was an ass cause I was crying and he finally got up, put his hand on my shoulder and said "you need to have a better attitude about this." I wanted to kick him. Hope I haven't wasted your time by possibly reposting...

Sh8un,
Interesting bedside manner. Dignan's is much better. It is listed in his phase 111 drug trial post. Anyone know if this trial has expanded to RRMS patients?
And a question for you scientists out there, isn't the Amino Acid theory what Copaxone works on?

Hi Lyon,
Yeah, I wanted to move to Cali but didn't because I love my drug coverage in Canada too much. It's too bad for me though. I have not been on the site all that much either because I had a little baby boy and he keeps me pretty busy. I also spend way too much time on facebook. Idid miss you guys though. Hope everyone is good.

Here's a thread on dirucotide started last Sept.
http://www.thisisms.com/ftopic-6069-0-d ... rasc-.html

This drug is like copaxone, in that it's a myelin based protein that is given intravenously in an infusion...but not every a shot every day, only every six months.

It's certainly not a cure, but a stabilizer for SPMSers, like copaxone is for RRMSers.
