Hello,

I was wondering if anyone knew if getting a Hepatitis shot will aggrevate MS. I have a job that might include an extra duty helping someone use bathroom facilities. If I end up with this extra duty they want me to get a hepatitis shot. If this will aggrevate my MS I will politely decline this extra duty. I have not been put in a situation like this since I have been dx. I ...

Advice anyone?

Hi,

I'm concerned because of my sister...

My sister and me were both diagnosed with MS in autumn 2006. We had the same onset, same number of lesions etc. She was 23 and I was 26.

We started both with Rebif 44, we both had another flare in april 2007 (ON for her, nystagmus for me) and than everything seemed to be fine. FOR ME it is still fine, I'm okay.

Why R most Tysabri-PML cases in europe?

I'm confused - according to that data...

<shortened url>

... 20,200 people in the US are on Tysabri and 16,900 outside US.

BUT: There are until now 5 PML cases (Tysabri mono therapy)

1 in the US
4 in Europe (out of the 4 there are 3 !! Germans)

What is happening? Better screening for PML risk candidates in the US? Higher JC virus prevalence in europe?

Any comments?

Thank you,
Sandrine

Introduction to Inclined Bed Therapy for Multiple Sclerosis

I am 53 years young, Happily Married for 29 years with two grown up sons.

I have been researching neurological conditions for 16 years now, following a simple discovery in circulation, which began trying to understand how trees lift water to their leaves without a pump, Little did I know at this time that questioning some erroneous science literature would have such far reaching implications for so many people. Some of you may have read ...
