Article on Campath

Positve, but realistic article on effectiveness of Camapth.

Buzz around Campath proof-of-concept trial in MS 16 January 2009

The phase 2 study's results are certainly unprecedented in MS. But whether Campath (alemtuzumab), a monoclonal antibody (mAb) already approved to treat leukemia, actually 'reverses' MS, ...

I think I had an attack on Copaxone....

I've been in a great deal of pain lately, mostly legs and feet (my arches) The neuro suggested I start neurontin.

Can you use it and go off it when you're feeling better? or is it dangerous to do so? ...
