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

Interesting antibody research ... px?nid=566

I'd like to wish my old friend Lyon a Merry Christmas. We can still use the C work in the UK and haven't been pushed into the Happy Holidays cop out.

Merry Christmas to all the users of the site (even grumpy old Harry Z) and fingers crossed that 2009 will see some more research advances.

Thanks Ian, that is interesting. I just checked out Dr. Weiner's book from the library again and am re-reading it.

Merry Christmas (I haven't gotten with the Happy Holidays program).

Well it's about time....

This suggests that in the future, a non-invasive blood test may be able to distinguish an individual’s underlying pathology and help with treatment decisions.

This has to be the most difficult aspect of ms from a sufferer's perspective, what treatment to turn to.

So even if there is no cure, the process of finding a successful treatment will be less complicated.

How exciting!

I feel if the current CRAB companies wanted to, they could of by now derived a test that would identify which patients would respond to their respective treatment. But why cut-off 70% of your market. :twisted:

I completely agree, and maybe a large percentage of the CRAB market is dwindling off and tired of the experimental status of side effects.

If that's the case wouldn't a positive antibody scenario definitely boost sales?
