The "rebound effect" is not something I would be looking forward to. And also, the quote that it gives the body "an opportunity to rebalance and repair" in my mind does not match up to the fact there is a rebound when you stop. So I personally am taking this treatment with big grain of salt.He and most the other participants experienced rapid improvements to their quality of life.
But these ended when the trial stopped, says Mr Mudgway.
"I went back to how I was. Even worse," he said.
"It gives the body an opportunity to rebalance and repair," said Dr Gillian Webster, who heads the development team.
"There are two layers of benefit. One is fairly immediate, which improves the patient's quality of life. The acute pain goes, the vision improves, muscle strength improves.
"There is also a definite delay in progression."

While the study was not designed to look at the efficacy of MIS416, results were encouraging. In the small study group of 11 people, 5 subjects showed at least 30% improvement in the physical component of a functional scale (the short form health survey) and 7 subjects showed at least 20% improvement in total score on the Multiple Sclerosis Functional Composite (MSFC) scale. Some participants also showed improvement in fatigue measures and expanded disability severity scores (EDSS). Common side effects of MIS416 included fever, headache, fatigue and muscle pain and stiffness.
