Peer review process

(This is somewhat off-topic from the original thread "EBV and MS" so I moved it out.)

Bob,

Regarding the peer review process: Arrr!!! Me thinks you have some misgivings about the pirates' code!

Some might think of it as a necessary evil, but overall it works well. What would be the alternatives? You have a boiling pot of good and bad science, big egos versus bigger egos, lots of time and careers invested with publication ...

Bill and Linda Gates Foundation

There are many people coming to this site that are heavily involved in trying to find decent treatments or a cure for this disease.

I am curious if any attempts have been made to get the Gates Foundation to contribute dollars towards MS research.

From what I have seen, the Gates are interested in funding projects for diseases that have too small of a patient load and are therefore not money makers for big pharma ...

'encephalomyelitis disseminata' or 'disseminated sclerosis'?

A little good news

Hi all,

I just wanted to say I received my neuro report on the Brain/Spinal MRI I had last Friday and the results are encouraging. My brain appears stable (although my brother questions that :wink: ) with one lesion being less visable. This was my first spinal scan and no spinal lesions were identified.

Electric Stair Lifts

Hi!

I am wondering about which electric stair lift to purchase. I am not sure where this query should be posted, but what I would like to know is what experiences others have had with various brands and models of stair lifts, good and bad.

Any help will be much appreciated!

Thanks,

John ...

Can no longer afford Copaxone

Dr Tim Vollmer video

The Acclerated Cure Project has included a video of its 2007 annual event on its website. The video of Dr Tim Vollmer's presentation looks very interesting - I've seen the first 20 mins and will watch the rest later. I think GWA is a fan of Dr Vollmer.
