Dr Zang

I think this article is about the Dr Zang who developed the T cell vaccination. Interesting that GSK have snapped him up - they are one of the big players.

Vanderbilt

I am just curious if anyone here has gone to the Vanderbilt clinic for testing and therapy for the ABX's.

California

They now have the go ahead from the courts, after two years of being held up, to proceed in distributing money for research with stem cells. The Supreme Court chose not to hear the case making it void. This is a huge step and I can only hope other states now follow.

Copaxone Seeping

I started Copaxone a month ago. Occasionally I find that it seeps out after the injection. When that happens, the site bleeds more than normal. I haven't withdrawn the needle early and I always do a 90 degree angle so I'm wondering what I'm doing wrong.
