Phase III, Dignan?

Hi Dignan et al,

Date: Fri, 22 June 2007

The findings published in the June 12th issue of Neurology support the novel use of a Markov transitional model in predicting the short-term disability in patients with multiple sclerosis (MS).

The standard statistical methods of survival analysis used to create clinical predictive models do not include the ongoing changing nature of MS, Dr. ...

Walking Into Things

Hi all,

Just a little effort to try and laugh at something that would be easy to get upset about...since the MS, my peripheral vision hasn't been the same. So, when I'm not looking directly at something, I may miss out on something. Yesterday, after my first attempt at returning to exercise for awhile, something caught my eye while walking towards the exit of the club. I walked forward and reached my hand out to ...

Not MS, but there are so many bone-marrow stem cell treatments in trial (by bona fide clinics) that the turn of MS is coming (there are trials planned / possibly underway in the UK for MS).

Charcot-Marie-Tooth Disease

Scientists find neurological gene mutation
ANN ARBOR, Mich., June 21 (UPI) -- U.S. scientists have discovered the gene mutation that produces one form of Charcot-Marie-Tooth disorder -- an inherited neurological disease.
Researchers at the University of Michigan -- led by Professor Miriam Meisler -- said their finding means a genetic test will be possible for people with a less common subtype of the disorder -- one that, until now, was unidentified and had an unknown ...

The Scientist

My twin brother works for a BioTech firm and he gave me an insert to the journal called The Scientist, it is from the May 2007 issue. I strongly recommend that you get this if you can. It's called Autoimmunity--Diseases, Mecanisms, Therapies. It's packed full of great info. Maybe someone who is more skilled with the computer than I am can PM me and I would be glad to send it to you. If possible ...

I often wonder what it is that makes one persons ms ...
