Is this just a misunderstanding between my GP/Neuro?

I saw my GP today for the first time since I was diagnosed with MS in March (the 5th). At the time of my lumbar puncture, 11 vials of blood were taken, and I was certain that the tests would include everything I have heard others speak about (including lyme, hiv, lupus, thyroid, vitamin deficiencies).

close to a cure?

just a question.. how many of you, honestly, think that one day, hopefully in the not so distant future, there will be a cure for this disease?

I read an article about some stem cell ...
