Is 2010 when they expect to be ready to start testing in humans or is that when they expect there to actually be a treatment on the market? Does anyone know?
I don't know the answer to that one. Did you actually read 2010 somewhere because in a way regarding suspected
neuroprotection they are already trialing that (lamotrigine) but as far as myelin repair....I didn't think they were at a point in which they could realistically project a date? Don't know, hopefully someone else knows more about that one.
I've not been feeling very well lately and that always makes me anxious to hear some good news.
My wife is feeling well but the Tovaxin coordinator called her yesterday and said she had another new lesion on her recent MRI. While it's wonderful that she isn't experiencing anything bad from these lesions it's scaring the crap out of us that she keeps getting more of them. Dosing with Tovaxin hasn't yet begun and at this rate a possible year on placebo is getting scarier and scarier.
I too am hopeful about some of the treatments in trials. It's obvious that completely supressing the immune system is not the answer.
Not to push the helminth parasites yet again but that is exactly what is most hopeful about them. They don't just suppress the immune system, they modulate it...controlling multiple aspects of the immune system as needed. Sorry, more shameless plugging of the helminths on my part
