Attached is a summary of a research project involving cyclophosphamide. The results appear impressive - reduction in EDSS and a claim that the combination treatment has halted progression (only time will tell).
Does anyone know anything more about cyclophosphamide? Know anyone who has received it as treatment for MS?
There seems to be an almost limitless amount of drugs that are currently being trialled. But many seem to be moving in the right direction e.g. Campath (for RR) and Tovaxin appear (from the anectdotal evidence available) to be much more effective than the CRABs (in terms of reducing relapses and helping facilitate some repair). There are no doubt some bigger risks with these newer treatments, but given the way this disease can progress probably worth taking (just my view). This is an extreme disease and probably requires extreme treatments if good results are to be seen.
With so many trials on-going and in the pipeline there must come a point where it will be difficult to recruit the required number of MS guinea pigs.
All the best
