Contribution of relapses to disability

A big question in MS is the connection (if any) between relapses and disability (long term). Trials involving drugs which are very effective at stopping / reducing relapses (Campath, Mitoxantrone etc) should provide answers as to whether substantially reducing relapses has long term benefits (such as substantially slowing down disability / stopping the progression of disability). The following research examines the relationship of relapses and disability.

Bob,

I'm glad to see that my threats to ban you from this site have resulted in a dramatic reduction in the number of your postings (reduction of c.30% - the equivalent of a CRAB drug).

Help me name my team!

We're doing the MS Society Supercities Walk again this year, and I am having aheckofatime coming up with a fun name for our team.

Nitrous oxide and ms?

Hi
I've seen a good few papers on Nitric oxide and MS, but just wondering about Nitrous oxide. <shortened url>
....excuse my ignorance but is it totally different?

It's just that nitrous oxide (tradename "Entonox") is used for pain relief during labour (34 wks pregnant at the moment!) and I'm researching my options - but I don't want to take it if it would increase relapse risk in any way.

Does anyone here know anything ...
