Doing so will help patients get the appropriate treatments and will help more researchers collect the best data in their pursuit of a cure.
Be it MS or NMO is not that different. None of them can be treated and the symptoms are more or less the same, so no appropriate treatments to consider. CRABs or Tysabri are out of the question since they don't seem to affect the course of the disease.
Now, about the cure... I would agree if instead of the word "cure" they used a more sincere expression i.e. "something FDA approved to bring us money regardless of effectiveness."
I get angry when I hear about researchers looking for "cures". No disease has been cured in the last 50 years. Researchers look for products worth selling.
Real breakthroughs come from people caring for some loved one: Lorenzo's oil, DAC, LDN (a little), CCSVI
Little scientists in white suits looking for money under the microscope are of no interest to me.
That 's just my personal opinion, mostly biased and maybe inaccurate.
