Something for Lyon

Lyon,

You have an insatiable demand for MS knowledge. Attached is a video of a lecture from the end of last year from Professor Thompson of the UK which runs through current knowledge / current therapies / future therapies. This should keep you happy and give us all a break from you for a day or so. Enjoy.

Questions

Must be my lucky week,

At the end of last week a question I posted to the expert on the UK MS Society website was answered, on Monday I had a £1,000 win on the Premium Bonds, and today I see that my question has been answered on the Canadian MS Society website. And I work full-time!

Relapsing/Remitting, what the?

Last weekend during a search of the internet I came across something that someone named "MSWillow" had written on "thisisms" a couple of years ago and it referred to relapsing being due to damage to the myelin and remitting being due to repair efforts of the body.
