Combination therapy of Interferon+Copaxone

This study included 83 MS patients that where treated with either Interferon or Copaxone. Due to worsening 21 of them switched to a combined therapy for 16-24 months.
Apart from high perceived psychological impact in the combination group, no other significant differences between treatments were found.

3 years follow up Mitoxantrone

In 304 active RRMS or progressive MS patients, Mitoxantrone stabilised the dissease course for two years after Mitoxantrone discontinuation.
After that, people who did not get other dissease modifying drugs (Interferon / Copaxone) deteriorated.

Kaleidascope/blind spot in right eye

Hi
I'm 11 weeks pregnant and have been doing great so far, MS-wise.

Just noticed with shock that I can't see properly in my right eye.
At first I thought I'd looked at something that had dazzled my eye, then I realised the vision is gone in a small central spot.
Then all around the spot it's gone like a moving kaleidascope.....very exciting altogether 8O (not!).

Now ...

Another good step in the process of figuring out stem cells:



Functioning Neurons From Human Embryonic Stem Cells Produced

10 August 2007 -- Scientists with the Institute of Stem Cell Biology and Medicine at UCLA were able to produce from human embryonic stem cells a highly pure, large quantity of functioning neurons that will allow them to create models of and study diseases such as Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, Multiple Sclerosis, prefrontal dementia and schizophrenia, etc.

Have anyone used Botox for Spasticity

Hi,

I recently found this article in MSRC website

http://www.msrc.co.uk/index.cfm?fuseaction=show&pageid=1829&CFID=3680312&CFTOKEN=72765621

Also our neurologist had suggested that Botox is a very good treatment for people with severe Spasticity & said that one dosage would be enough for a patient to be free of Spasticity for up to 6 months.

I would like to know the experience of others in case if they had used Botox

Thanks in Advance,
Gopi
