Not that MS sufferers need any more dark clouds in their horizon but I've always wondered why higher cancer risks have never been associated with MS and other destructive autoimmune diseases.
I'm a firm believer that MS is autoimmune but I also believe, and I think it's widely believed that MS originates with a trigger and it seems to me that trigger would have to be either environmental (carbon monoxide, etc..) or an event (trauma, etc) along with genetic suceptibility.
This story has received lots of coverage in the UK with the annoying consequence that friends and family members have alerted me to the 'miracle' treatment, or sent me the press cuttings. They mean well, but tend to read these sorts of stories at face value. Hopefully, it will show as much promise in the trial and become another option.
The worse was the coverage in the UK of the stem cell injections in Holland. My dad keeps saying to me "I'll give you the £14,000!".
30 seconds ago a colleague just said "did you see the press at the weekend about a new treatment?". If I strangle the next person who says this I might need you as a witness for the defence.
