How sad. I will have to pass this along to my wife who is a researcher at a NC college. Her research is primarily related to finding treatment for different types of cancer but she recently has looked into working with stem cells to address a variety of diseases. Funny thing is Cheer she would probably agree with you!!!

hey scorpion...
Didn't write it, just posted it- but it is sad. Thought the NIH angle was interesting. I"ll bet if Jeff and I and you and your wife all sat down, we'd find out we had alot more in common than you might expect :)
and now I understand your keen interest in stem cells- very cool.
all best,
cheer

Good article. I liked it a lot there is more and more coming out in this line of thought and it is all good for us I believe!
I'm not offering medical advice, I am just a patient too! Talk to your doctor about what is best for you...

That is why I am going for the stem cell transplant before they publish fancy top rated articles and I will not wait for the grants of a pharmaceutical company to fund this research. My two cents... Carole

Hey rainer, I missed your original post, but I'm glad you put the link in because I hadn't read the comments on the article, but they're really interesting. A number of very well-informed people making lots of interesting points.

Striking to me that Stein worked on progesterone for 40 years before getting it to a larger clinical trial for TBI--suggests it certainly won't be in a clinical trial for MS in my lifetime.

Some years ago I simultaneously sent 7 "collaborating" MS academic centers info on progesterone and potential applicability to MS (incorporating MS research from those same MS centers) and didn't receive an acknowledgement from any of them--I still find it rather bizarre.

Rainer--I've also sent info on progesterone to the Myelin Repair Project--they did respond and were grateful for the information.

It is really sad...
