Coming off Copaxone for pregnancy, terrified.

Hi
I'm very stressed.
8O
I had 2 miscarriages in the last 2 year, and probably an early 3rd one too.
Each time I was on Copaxone until I got a positive test, then I gave it up.

Angled injections or 90 degrees?

I have read on here about the importance of removing the needle carefully at 90 degrees to help prevent Copaxone site reactions. I've also read that injecting at an angle (normal practice with other type of sub-cue injections) helps as well.

Are these recommendations for the auto-inject, or for manual injections? Would someone please give me more specific information on this? I realize it's impossible to inject at an angle and remove at 90 degrees, ...

The brain discoveries continue...



Brain's white matter -- More 'talkative' than once thought

Johns Hopkins scientists have discovered to their surprise that nerves in the mammalian brain’s white matter do more than just ferry information between different brain regions, but in fact process information the way gray matter cells do.

The discovery in mouse cells, outlined in the cover story of the March issue of Nature Neuroscience, shows that brain cells “talk” with each other ...

Best Regards,

Interferons & Statins

art wrote:Atorvastatin + Rebif in MS (Safety Trial)
Gary Birnbaum

This nine-month trial looked at combining statins with Rebif. It had 3 arms: Rebif + placebo, Rebif + 40mg statins, and Rebif + 80mg statins daily for 6 months. The trial included 29 subjects who had each been stable on Rebif for at least six months. Five subjects dropped out either before or during treatment, one due to muscle pain (a known problem with statins). Unfortunately, ...

Estrogen Neuroprotective (Mice)

An abstract from the recent AAN meeting reported an estrogen ligand was neuroprotective in mice and the effect was not attributable to anti-inflammatory properties in the peripheral immune system.
