You're making it up

One of the MS websites I visit lists the top 20 news articles on that day which refer to MS. The usual story is about a new treatment. Today, half of the news articles had included the name Bin Laden in the title. Could terrorism and MS be linked?

The story is a 51 year old, five time married, British grandmother with MS who has married the 27 year old son of Bin Laden.

MS Society in Australia TV Show

The following page has downloadable and viewable episodes of a TV show on MS, presented on a public broadcast channel here in Australia. Its a series, so every week they release a new one. I think there may be 12 in total, and about 6 are available now.

A lot of it is about the services offered by the MS Society in Australia. The "presenter" himself has MS, and during the filming of one of ...

Dilemma

I've been offered a good job with a large organization that has full benefits, yet I am struggling with the decision whether to accept or not. I also have an opportunity to join a small start up company that I find to be a lot of fun (same kind of work, just different environment). This start up may offer benefits in the future, but it is uncertain and not something that is available right now. ...

Flaxseed oil

My local health food shop do not refrigerate their flax seed oil.

Thanks

Peptides and Re-Tests / Trials

I was wondering, Opexa have made major improvements on the efficacy of Tovaxin by increasing the number of "Peptides" used, to identify MRTC's. In each case, they did not appear to be required to go back to Phase I trials.

Does this mean, that after it has gone through Phase III, they will be able to improve the process by increasing the number of Peptides without needing to go through the 3 phases of trial ...
