If it's on your mind and it has to do with multiple sclerosis in any way, post it here.

I also like the sidebar to the article:

WHAT DOES CURE Really MEAN?

The word “cure” is a tricky thing. “HiCy is a cure, like bone marrow transplant is a cure,” says Hopkins hematologist Robert Brodsky. “There are aplastic anemia patients who are cured 10, 20, 30 years out after HiCy. If you’re not going to call that a cure, then none of us is cured of anything.” But he’d really prefer to call HiCy a “potential” cure, because, “If you use the word ‘cure,’ people think everyone is cured, though 40-50 percent may not be.”

Always interesting to read the kind of emotional roller coaster ride these researchers go through. Not easy for anyone I would guess.

Thanks a lot, Lyon ...
