Four months ago, when Opexa Therapeutics pulled the plug on Phase II-B of Tovaxin, a lot of people were shocked and very unhappy. Especially when some of them—us, rather—had, over the course of the study, become cheerleading advocates. ...

Alcohol and Rebif

I have yet another question about Rebif... I heard that you cannot consume beer while taking Rebif. I went to their website and couldnt find anything on that. Does anyone know?

So, from what I was told, you can drink beer on copax but not on ...

New studies are deciphering the complex picture of genetic characteristics that make people susceptible to MS, thanks to international collaborations and unique population studies.

Euphoria before attack

Hi

Has anyone noticed that they feel really good and well just before a relapse like a real feeling of euphoria? I have noticed this has happened to me a few times now.
I can't work out if its because I feel well I do more hence bringing on an attack or if it is a biological/chemical thing.

Any ideas?
