If it's on your mind and it has to do with multiple sclerosis in any way, post it here.

MBP8298 for the treatment of secondary progressive MS

Today, I was offered the opportunity to enroll in the BioMS study looking at the effects of MBP8298 for the treatment of secondary progressive multiple sclerosis. Given that I have slowly but surely progressed in the last few years, I see little options. Let me know what you think.

thanks,

Parasites - one for Lyon

Parasitic infection is found to benefit MS patients

Patients with multiple sclerosis who also happen to have an intestinal parasite appear to have significantly fewer relapses and better outcomes than other MS patients, a new study found.

VERY interesting diagnosis!

BACKGROUND: My daughter's very first symptom (severe itching in her arm) occurred almost immediately after receiving a Hep. B vaccine (which was not given correctly which caused great concern for her doctor. She had the vaccine at the health department.) During my early research, I joined a Hep. B vaccine reaction website. Did it so long ago actually forgot I did!

JUMP FORWARD: A few weeks ago, a lady in her 50s contacted me via ...
