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

Antibiotics

An article from the BBC:
http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/health/7136088.stm

There's not a ton of data there and the article admits it was a small study but it just shows more signs that antibiotics could help MS patients. Every little bit counts!

Good article, Matt...

It also mentions Cpn infection and MS. Wonder if Sarah and David have seen this? Perhaps the tide is turning in the mainstream MS community? Would that it were so!

"Helen Yates, of the MS Resource Centre, said the condition was complex and difficult.

She said other work was examining the possibility that MS was linked to an infection of the bacterium Chlamydia pneumoniae - more commonly associated with respiratory disease - in the brain.

"The growing interest in combination therapies is producing some good results, in particular for those people for whom single therapies have not worked."

interesting,
AC
