FTY720 (Fingolimod) &

Hey all,

I was doing some research on Fingolimod when I stumbled onto something I thought may be related to the discussions we are having here. Fingolimod is a sphingosine 1-phosphate (S1-P) receptor modulator and has been shown to reduce relapses and disability progression. When I googled "sphingosine 1-phosphate (S1-P) receptor modulators," the research article below popped up. In it, the research shows that S1-P significantly attenuates "vascular barrier dysfunction." I have a limited understanding ...

CCSVI and change of seasons

Would change of seasons affect someone with CCSVI?

Everytime the seasons change, I feel horrible. I have been so dizzy and nausious the past 4 days, it's very miserable. I thought I had a flu or cold at first, but no fever or or other symptoms. Besides this is how my relapses often start.

There is so much information here and I have probably absorbed about 50% of it. it's overwhelming for me. ...

10/29/09 My husband said Dr. Dake came out to the waiting room after my 2.5 hour procedure and gave an enthusiastic run down, on what I gathered from the corner of my eye was a flawless installation of 3 stents & 1 angioplasty. Both jugulars a mess, but azygos OK. Flew back to Seattle Sun. and I'm recovering well, but muscles still weak. Neck pain initially severe, a few headaches, but now manageable, just using ...

Five Month Update

Quick recap (this site has exploded, even in the couple of weeks my attention has wandered it has grown exponentially, hence the recap!).

Mel was diagnosed summer 2007, had high dose chemo (Hi-Cy/Revimmune) in May 2008. HiCy paused progression, gave her bowel function back but the rest of the symptoms (fatigue, depression, brain fog, left sided disability) had all returned with a vengeance by March/April of 2009. She had been on rebif and was taking ...

Erika is in Katowice

Hi everybody,

I thought you might be interested that Erika is now in the hospital in Katowice.
Rici talked to her just now and posted it in the German speaking forum.

Tomorrow they will do a MRI in Zabzre.
Maybe she will have the operation in the afternoon.

Keep my fingers cross for her.

Possible animal model for MS by inducing CCSVI ?

One of the problems with the scientific study of MS is the lack of an animal model of the disease. Now with CCSVI, it seems like scientists can cause stenosis by clamping the jugulars and/or azygous of mice (do mice have them ???) to force reflux. Then see if lesions develop. Seems like a good idea to me !!!! Any thoughts ????
