MRI Results - Any insight?

THANKS!

Well, just got back from GP. He says "no lesions on the brain, but I am not ruling out MS yet", so he is still referring me for a neurology appt. on 11/14. Here's what my report says: What do you think?

T2 weighted imaging demonstrates punctate areas of high signal intensity within the centrum semiovale, possibly representing prominent Virchoe-Robin spaces. There is no evidence of abnormal enhancing lesion. The periventricular white matter appears ...

Good MS Doctor In Kentucky

Hi folks;
I'm new to this forum, and I need some info. My doctor does not specialize in MS, and I'm trying to choose a new one. I have had secondary progressive MS for about 20 years. I'm on copaxone, and a few other maintenance drugs. I am now totally disabled, but I have not given up!
I do know there are some very good looking drugs coming down the pipeline, and I think it ...

Market date for Fampridine?

Howdy all,

Has anyone heard an expected market date for Fampridine? It certainly sounds like it will be a great help in symptom management if you are in the "responder" group. Is anyone on the board in the phase III trial for Fampridine? If so, how has the trial gone for you? Do you feel that it has helped with tingling sensations? With ease of walking?

Thanks,
Mike

Printer Friendly Email to a Friend




Researchers are discovering new ways to help 'de-program' specialised cells so that they can be re-programmed to form a range of different types of tissue, an international meeting of stem cell biologists was told.
If this approach can be made to succeed, it could circumvent many of the ethical and moral objections that have been raised to using human stem cells derived from embryos - the ...

Biogen stock trade

Biogen stock sale generates 1.4 million in a single day's trade for executive vice president.

http://money.cnn.com/news/newsfeeds/art ... 333509.htm

I can't find the exact thread right now, but I seem to recall a couple of their execs selling a large quantity of stock right before Tysabri was initially pulled from the market followed by their share price getting cut in half. The above stock sale sounds almost like cashing out ...

Chaperonin10

Not particularly impressive results:

Bristol / Lebanon

As a positive sort of person (in terms of future prospects for those with MS), I have real hope for the stem cell pilot trial taking place in Bristol, England. Further detail on the pilot trial are attached. Similar trials are taking place around the world. Attached is an article about a trial in Lebanon.
