Has anybody tried BCG vaccine for MS?

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

Has anybody tried BCG vaccine for MS?

Today BBC wrote this
TB vaccine 'could help prevent MS'
An anti-tuberculosis vaccine could prevent multiple sclerosis, early research suggests.

and wiki says that it could even reduce MS lesions.
Any input please.

The BCG (Bacillus Calmette-Guérin) vaccine is routinely given in the UK to school-age children. I have a friend who changed schools there often and received this vaccine four times. She now HAS MS (and has had bladder cancer, which I think is related to increased insulin as a result of the vaccine).

I do not think it will help with MS! Ultimately, it may make things worse.
My hypothesis: excess insulin (hyperinsulinemia) plays a major role in MS, as developed in my initial post: http://www.thisisms.com/forum/general-discussion-f1/topic1878.html "Insulin – Could This Be the Key?"

Posted today in General Discussion by frodo (general-discussion-f1/topic25048.html#p227057) on BCG vaccine: http://www.msdiscovery.org/news/new_fin ... rogression



Another General Discussion thread, "Tuberculosis Vaccine May Help Prevent Multiple Sclerosis???" on December 4, 2013: general-discussion-f1/topic23859.html?hilit=BCG#p218832



And earlier on September 9, 2012: post197853.html?hilit=Faustman#p197853

I came across this interesting interview with Dr. Denise Faustman, Harvard researcher working on type I diabetes treatment. She mentions that Italian researchers are working on the same treatment for multiple sclerosis and that they are ahead. Do we have any members in Italy who have read of the BCG vaccine being used to manage TNF for MS?
Added 10/15/2012: I wonder if this (http://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT00202410), compliments of a post by mrbarlow, could be the work in Italy that Dr. Faustman references in the video, "New Hope against Diabetes."

Dear friends, you may find this short video interesting:

With my concern about excess insulin, I admit that the "kickstart" to the pancreas' production of insulin mentioned in this Bloomberg article is worrisome: http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2012-08-0 ... or-tb.html
