A board to discuss future MS therapies in early stage (Phase I or II) trials.

"The Holy Grail" -- Continuation of Nanoparticle research

Anyone else excited about this? Some results from the first clinical trial based on the nanoparticle research first published this last November. ... 144312.htm


"A phase 1 clinical trial for the first treatment to reset the immune system of multiple sclerosis (MS) patients showed the therapy was safe and dramatically reduced patients' immune systems' reactivity to myelin by 50 to 75 percent, according to new Northwestern Medicine ...

CCSVI Evolved and the Missing Infectious Link

Contrary to recent “reports”, CCSVI isn’t “dead”. It is being
refined and rethought and is very much alive.

Dr. Zamboni’s groundbreaking insight poses two distinct problems.
First, the reflux of veinous blood into the central nervous system must be
halted (at best) or minimized. Second, the injured tissue must be healed.

Recent observations about cranial fluid dynamics, the possibility that cerebrospinal
fluid build-up can "pressure" venous blood circulation leading to a blood
reflux, implies that ...

Can Anti-HIV Drugs Stop MS?

A clinical trial now underway at Queen Mary University in London, England, called be INSPIRE trial (click here), is attempting to use Raltegravir to treat MS patients. Researchers hope that the drug will deactivate any activated retroviral material in the DNA of MS patients, while perhaps also combating EBV, and thus stop multiple sclerosis in its tracks. Another group of researchers in Switzerland are trying to accomplish the same outcome using an experimental drug that ...

Targeting estrogen receptor β in microglia and T cells

Very early stages, but I did not see any reference to it on TIMS.
Targeting estrogen receptor β in microglia and T cells to treat experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis
A therapeutic goal in the treatment of certain CNS diseases, including multiple sclerosis, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, and Parkinson disease, is to down-regulate inflammatory pathways. Inflammatory molecules produced by microglia are responsible for removal of damaged neurons, but can cause collateral damage to normal neurons located close ...

I have just started Tecfidera after four years on Avonex. The side effects of Avonex never let up. I'd love to get in touch with anyone else who is taking Tecfidera. So far, I'm doing very well--but I'm still on half doses. Next week I start full doses.

My mum started 4-ap about a week ago ( I don't know the dose sorry ). She was on a trial that her neuro put her on for a week. After having 1 tab a day, they changed her to 2. Tonight, a couple of hours after the tablet, I went to visit her and she was shaking uncontrollably, she was incredibly confused and wasn't sure who I was and where she was, she kept ...
