Clinical study

I was recently diagnosed with MS-lesions on MRI--one CIS-which affected my left eye over several weeks--I have been offered the opportunity to participate in the teraflunomide study--can someone tell me what exactly do they test you for prior to being accepted and during?

Tysabri and sunburn?

Morning all,

so I've read about the possible link of Tysabri and melanoma (which is just fantastic * note the sarcasm), but is there any link between it and sunburn? I'm VERY fair skinned and am used to the sun being the devil.....

Smoking speeds MS progression

NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Multiple sclerosis (MS) patients who smoke have a speedier progression of the disease, a new study in the Archives of Neurology suggests.

Dr. Alberto Ascherio of the Harvard School of Public Health in Boston and his colleagues also found that smokers with MS were more likely to have the progressive form of the disease, in which symptoms steadily get worse, rather than the relapsing-remitting form, in which a person has ...

...oh, it's a bit scary

Hi there
I started 600 mg NAC last week and started to feel very strange (chesty, sinus pain,nausea,headache) then since increasing to 1200mg two days ago my heart has started really pounding and I seem to be getting a fluctuating flare-up of a whole bunch of old MS symptoms.

Prayers for D and some thoughts...

Jeff just spoke to our neighbor and dear friend. Our mutual friend/mom of our son's friend is having her surgery today. D was "out of wait" (as so beautifully expressed by Marie.) At 40, she was wheelchair bound and raising her son on her own. She went up to Stanford with her sister and had multiple blockages. We'll get the story later, but for those who pray, please keep D in your thoughts today.
