Lyon - do something useful

Bob,

You seem to have too much time on your hands and I'm a busy man. Attached are interviews with a number of MS researchers who presented at the MS Frontiers conference. Please could you watch them and report back. Sorry if this interferes with your hobbies (watching American football, baseball, basketball, wrestling etc etc).

I got the news right before the Tovaxin IIB trial got underway and was a prime candidate. I had my blood drawn and lucky me I had the t-cells needed to make the vaccine.

Cellsept & Copaxone or Cellsept & Pulse Roids

I had an appt with my neuro yesterday we had been discussing changing my therapy due to the depression side effects I get from my Avonex. Currently I'm on Avonex and pulse roids and this has worked very well for me since switching from Copaxone. He mentioned Tysabri which I'm not currently comfortable with at this time.
