Seeking approval for generic interferon in Europe

This is a surprise. It looks like a generic version of rebif/avonex has been submitted for approval in Europe. I hope this marks the start of price reductions in MS drug prices.

Deep-Brain Stimulation

On the one hand, brain surgery is a scary thought, on the other hand options to deal with MS symptoms are always welcome.

Hi boys & girls, I'm Josh. I'm a 27 year old feller from a tiny little town in central Illinos. I was diagnosed with MS in Jan. of '06 when I had optic neuritus in my right eye.

Sysara or Arasys anybody ?

Heard about Syasara and it development for MS patients.

It failed so it was transformed into an apparatus to reduce your fat/body weight and increase muscle build up.

Now there is a lady MS patient who is actually using Sysara and yes she has several improvements. I like the thought.

I can not find any other Sysara related documents on the WWW.

Maybe anybody on this forum who is aware of any experiences with this ...

100 Degrees and Fatigue!

I got back last week from a vacation in Breckenridge, CO. For those of you around the world, Breckenridge is in the Rocky Mountains. The elevation is 9000+ feet (2700+ meters for everyone but us in the US :p). The average temp was a nice 72 degrees F during the day. I felt great! I had virtually no fatigue and even played golf 3 days in a row.

As with all good things, my trip ...

So the daily (essential) supplements are:
- N-acetyl cysteine 600mg twice daily: 2 pills
- Vitamin D3 4000 IU: if I take a 2000 IU /pill dose, that’s 2 pills.
- Vitamin C 1 g: easily available dose for ...

Dear all,

One of the UK's leading lights looking at stem cell therapies for MS is Professor Neil Scolding who is based in Bristol, England. He has been doing work for a number of years and is being funded by the UK MS Society. It now looks as if the first human trial using bone-marrowed derived stem cells has started at Bristol. It is early days, but this is a bona fide trial - not ...
