Glatiramer Acetate kills bacteria

They do not say that its mechanism of action in MS is related to bacteria, but it is interesting anyway.

https://www.nature.com/articles/s41598-017-15969-3

Could the action in MS be related with the antibacterial behaviour? Difficult to say, but look at this:

Can Eating Pork Cause MS ?

https://www.healthline.com/nutrition/is-pork-bad
SUMMARY:
A causative role of pork in MS is far from a closed case, but the unusually strong epidemiological patterns, biological plausibility and documented experiences make further research imperative.

The Brave Dreams clinical trial of venous PTA

https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jamaneurology/fullarticle/2664001

This trial will be accepted by most physicians and scientists. While it recommends follow-up trials the main conclusion was that PTA (the so-called and misnamed "Liberation" procedure) is safe, but ineffective. This was a sham-controlled, randomized trial, with randomization 2:1 in favour of the real procedure. This procedure, PTA, cannot be recommended for treatment of MS.

I have long been in favour of this procedure, and I believe I have had temporary and long-term ...

I have started an essay on mental problems which a person with MS might encounter. I wonder what others in this forum might think of it...

I would like to think she’s a better person than to try to fire me or get me to quit over this, but so many ...

Has anyone else tried clemastine fumarate @ new relapse?

I’m pretty sure I started my first noticeable relapse since rituxan (2013) on Monday. It started as a new numb feeling on top of right foot and started traveling up my leg throughout the day and I could feel the ms hug starting. I never have one-sided issues and the non-relapse sensory issues come and go within hours. This lasted a full day and is still there. BUT I took a single dose of clemastine ...
