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

UK MS Society research

WARNING TO HARRYZ AND HIS HENCHMEN/FOLLOWERS - PLEASE READ NO FURTHER. THERE ARE REFERENCES TO ANIMAL MODELS OF MS / AUTOIMMUNITY AND OTHER TERRIBLE THINGS. NO NEED TO COMMENT AS WE ACKNOWLEDGE / RESPECT YOUR VIEWS ON THESE MATTERS


For those such as Lyon / Dignan etc (basically the nice people who visit this site), please read on:

The UK MS Society has announced $9 million of research grants (paltry compared to the US, but we make a little go a long way over here). Details of the grants are provided in the link. Of interest:

Big focus on nerve damage / protection

Phase II study ($800K) for Hook Worms (for my old friend Bob) - see link called "Open Strand".


Update on key projects such as the Cambridge Myelin Repair Centre - see link "Update on Key Programmes".

Hope you find it of interest.

Ian

Good afternoon Ian,

I see that you are enjoying your long break from the House, but I think you might have taken just a bit too much sun.

Thanks for the update. It seems that i hear very little about what's heppening in the UK, but that could be because it reflects how much is going on!
