Revimmune Vs. Tovaxin for lesion repair??

At the anti forum I tried I had an interesting thing brought up and Bob this is kind of directed at you.

My lesions are healing. They are definitely healing. I have heard of people getting worse on Tovaxin which we did expect in the trial with some, but with those using Tovaxin is it allowing the lesions to heal?

I know the disability letting up is a good sign but it has nothing to ...

Copaxone 40mg

Not sure why Teva has issued this given that there appears to be no benefit in 40mg Copaxone over 20mg.

The Multiple Sclerosis Diet Book by Roy L. Swank, MD, PhD

In reading this book again, I found ideas I wanted to post. Assuming it would be listed in the "Reading Nook," I looked here to add comments. If it is here, I can't find it; so I'll make a new entry.

For those folks who have a library of MS-related books, I recommend the first acquired book be Multiple Sclerosis: The History of a Disease by T. Jock Murray, OC, MD.

The second should ...

Temporary paralysis - ten second flashes

Hi to all,

It happens every few (15 or so) minutes for about 10 seconds - I can't use my left hand, can't speak, I kind of freeze. After 10 seconds or so I get well again.

It's a strange feeling during the "flash" - ...

Can I get your opinions please?

Hi everyone,

So I am completely confused and would like some opinions. In March, I got the flu and after the flu was done, I noticed that my left side wasn't working as well as my right. I ended up going to the ER, and was admitted. I had an MRI which showed a lesion on the right side of my brain. My neurologist in the hospital seemed to think this was a viral thing. ...

Molecule has potential to regulate immune response <:3

Please note mouse emoticon :!:

AUGUSTA, GA - When a mouse's immune system is deciding whether to reject a skin graft, one powerful member of a molecular family designed to provoke such a response can effectively reduce the visibility of the mouse's own cells and help the graft survive, researchers say.

"This is a molecule with huge potential ...
