This Is MS Multiple Sclerosis Community: Knowledge & Support
Welcome to the world's leading forum on Multiple Sclerosis research, support, and knowledge. For over 10 years, This is MS has provided an unbiased community dedicated to Multiple Sclerosis patients, caregivers, and affected loved ones.
Attached is yet another research article about this disease which like many others is a statement of the bloody obvious - I could have written it.
I might submit a research article to see if I could get way with it. Here goes 'MS is a disease of the CNS which destroys myelin, axons and neurones. Current treatments are only moderately effective and future treatments need to protect the CNS from the on-going neuro-degeneration etc etc etc. Conclude by saying that more research is required to identify better treatments etc etc etc'. If I was an MS researcher this would have taken me a year, but I'm a history graduate and it took me 20 seconds. How they have the nerve (no pun inteded) to keep producing crappy research papers beggars belief.
the "more research is required to confirm these findings" always jabs me too. It's such an obvious statement, even with drugs that HAVE tons of research (e.g., Tysabri, the interferons, Copaxone, etc.)
