Does anyone read these?!?!?

I posted on the REBIF specific message board literally 100 years ago and no one posted back. I feel kind of like if a tree falls down in the forest and no one is there to hear it does it make a sound when it falls?!?! Yes, that's right I'm philosophical too!!

Any thoughts on diets and MS?

Hi gang,

I'm wondering what the take on affecting MS by modifying your diet is?

My sister, who is big on natural cures and such, gave me a copy of a book (Healing Multiple Sclerosis) by Ann Boroch that claims MS is caused by overgrowth of Candida albicans in the gut. She also claims that by modifing your diet to reduce its presence, you can actually "cure" your MS.

I'm skeptical at best. Anyone seen ...

New method for gene therapy

A large number of genes has been implicated in the pathology of MS, and it might not be too long before we're ready to start trying to repair some of them. However, delivering them and maintaining their function has been a major hurdle, but now headway is being made in solving that particular problem:
