curious: who's in the business of cures exactly? what's the business case? it's a serious question.
odd sx? no dx? check w/ dietitian
DRI=MINIMUM eg bit.ly/1vgQclQ
99% don't meet these. meds/lifestyle can affect levels
status can be low in ms & other cond'ns
'but my results are normal'. typical panels don't test all
deficits occur in 'normal' range

Hello,

It depends on your meaning of the word "cure".

If "cure" means stopping ms evolution, the only cure being developped at the moment (from what I am aware of) is the one described below:
http://www.geneuro.com/data/news/GeNeur ... 17-ENG.pdf
This report is about RRMS but this treatment is supposed to work with all forms of MS. BTW, phase1 study included only progressive ms.

I have no idea regarding their business case...

If "cure" means something else to you, I don't know what to answer.

Take care

pardon my not looking into it myself but is it a one stop shop? or something you take for the rest of your life to arrest progression.

It's a monthly shot.


I think there is a biotech called Medsenic working on a one shot treatment.

monthly for life sounds like a great income stream. esp if we can lower the bar on the dx process, feed those pesky undiagnosed folks into the mill.
wonder what medsenic's long term business plan is for a one and done ms treatment.
