Quick test for MS

This could be an interesting development: one of the big problems with MS has been a suspicion that the disease process begins years or even decades before symptoms show. If that is what happens, we could be missing crucial points where intervention might be possible, or which at least might give us a better understanding.

Revimmune at JH?

Curious if anyone knows the details of why JH is no longer accepting patients. To many requests? Study is complete? Etc., etc., etc.? The Rush program is geared a bit differently and I have family close to Baltimore.
Thanks,
Lars

New Job-ADA

Can a person be denied employment for disclosing their MS in a required medical exam after accepting a job offer?

Its my understanding that under the ADA a person can't be turned away once disclosing something like MS because any judgments have to made on their current condition...not what could happen down the road.

I couldn't find any threads about this topic!

Thanks for any input.

Glucosamine and chondroitin sulphate not better than placebo

Its "just" in Athritis, but there might be some relevance for MS too, as Glucosamine might offer a potential future treatment for MS
In favour of the supplements it has been noticed that the placebo group had some hard to explain "clinically important reduction" in loss of cartilage.

Hello from Ohio

Hello - I'm Rebecca and I'm from Ohio. After almost a decade, I've decided to re-investigate MS for my mom online. She's been on Avonex for about that long, but in the last couple of weeks, she's felt tingling where she hasn't felt it before. I'm interested in anything else that may help her or ease her suffering.

Bee Venom and Avonex

Does anyone out there have experience with bee venom therapy while still taking Avonex? I've been researching this online and I've talked to a couple of people who use bee venom, but none with MS. Here's what I saw online:

Tovaxin phase II failure

Hi all. My name is Ed. I have a sister with MS and I was e-mailing Chris about HiCy when I mentioned to him that I was following Tovaxin also.
