Thanks Dave! I'll look that up..
To continue the thread, The northwestern trial has 2 active arms, the other arm is 'wait for it' TYSABRI....
Also the NW is Hermopoetic....it seems the Cleveland Clinic one is Mesenchymal...don't know what the difference is once it's supercharged...
Also, since the Cleveland Clinic doesn't have the tysabri arm, I wouldn't have to wait until I'm totally weaned off of prednisone, the level I'm at, about 7 mgs /day if OK with them.
I have to run off to work for a couple of hours, I'm going to do some serious homework on the Cleveland trial when I get home.
Get this, my job function now relies on being able to draw blood from our ER arrivals for lab purposes. I have to pass my 'live' trial today. My hands shake on a good day, intentional tremor has been constant for about 8-10 years, I'm as nervous as a whore in church. I was gonna ask you guys to pray for me but somehow that seems inappropriate after that last sentence...whadya think?
It IS indeed time for a big step, 6 or so new lesions a year and the concommitant loss of ability is not acceptable, the risk of PML I think would have me being a basket case.
Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle..
