I'm making myself a lab rat for n-acetylglucosamine

NOTE: Below this messege I've posted some very interesting information about a certain strain of Glucosamine that has dramatically helped mice with the animal model of MS. Since there are no human trials going on at the moment for this, I'm gonna do it to myself. Clinical studies move as slowly as my bowel movements. I'm not gonna sit around and wait.

I found this specifial glucosamine (n-acetyl) variety at ultimateglucosamine.com

They have a link ...

Hello From Roanoke, VA

Good Evening from Roanoke!

I am a MS patient currently on Tysabri. I have been following LDN for over three years. I cannot find a practioner to prescribe it "due to lack of clinical data".

I am on disability and rely on a walker, crutches to get around. I miss walking without the devices and find things quite depressing.

From what I have read on this site, I do receive encouragement.

Thanks for being there! ...

Extension blood draw scheduled!

Well if finally happened. Two months behind schedule, but it finally happened. Bob told me to call down to Opexa and bug them since I was all screwed up about nothing going on. Lo and behold, the next day my blood draw gets scheduled. Coincidence?? Probably since they said they did all the first round of blood draw scheduling that day. They scheduled me for Dec. 26. I'm so freakin' happy to get this process ...

Merk Serono drug pipeline

Dignan,

It looks like Merk Serono are also looking at treatments targetting B cells. They have treatment in Phase II called Atacicept for MS (click on R&D October 2007). I couldn't see this on your pipeline list.

PS Osteopontin looks like it has moved up to Phase I

MBP 8298

BioMS are collaborating with Eli Lilly on MBP 8298 - which must be good news as the latter must have some confidence in the drug.

Do you expect to deteriorate with time?

Hi guys,

I have recently been reading some posts on other ms forums and so many people seem to be doing quite badly with their ms.
So many different symptoms that they talk about like paralysis of a part of their body, total numbness, loss of bladder/bowel control, extreme fatigue, unable to cope with the heat, vertigo, dizziness, loss of speech, unable to walk etc etc.

I have never experienced any of these symptoms and ...

Get ready for 24-hour living

Get ready for 24-hour living

SO MUCH to do, so little time. Between a hectic work schedule and a thriving social life, Yves (not his real name), a 31- year-old software developer from Seattle, often doesn't have time for a full night's sleep. So he swallows something to make sure he doesn't need one. "If I take a dose just before I go to bed, I can wake up after 4 or 5 hours and ...

Why Most Published Research Findings Are False

Why Most Published Research Findings Are False

John P. A. Ioannidis

Summary

There is increasing concern that most current published research findings are false. The probability that a research claim is true may depend on study power and bias, the number of other studies on the same question, and, importantly, the ratio of true to no relationships among the relationships probed in each scientific field. In this framework, a research finding is less likely to ...

High blood pressure and veins

Here's another suggestion that blood vessels have a role to play in MS, this time saying that high blood pressure can cause fistulas, (holes or channels which shouldn't be there and which allow material to flow),
