Ho hum, another study involving vitamin D

Minocycline - Dignan

Dignan,

I recently posted a presentation given at the end of November 2006 by Professor Thompson of the UK. The presentation covered neuro-protective agents and the following comment was made about minocycline:

Something for Lyon

Lyon,

You have an insatiable demand for MS knowledge. Attached is a video of a lecture from the end of last year from Professor Thompson of the UK which runs through current knowledge / current therapies / future therapies. This should keep you happy and give us all a break from you for a day or so. Enjoy.

Questions

Must be my lucky week,

At the end of last week a question I posted to the expert on the UK MS Society website was answered, on Monday I had a £1,000 win on the Premium Bonds, and today I see that my question has been answered on the Canadian MS Society website. And I work full-time!
