Risks of Novantrone

My boyfriend Scott's neurologist recommends that he go on Novantrone. He has been on Betaseron in the past but had bad injection site reactions. Would he be better off on Novantrone? I hear it's pretty risky.

Adult stem cells reprogrammed in the brain

Adult stem cells reprogrammed in the brain, hopes for diseases such as Multiple Sclerosis
01 July 2008

In recent years, stem cell researchers have become very adept at manipulating the fate of adult stem cells cultured in the lab. Now, researchers at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies achieved the same feat with adult neural stem cells still in place in the brain.

They successfully coaxed mouse brain stem cells bound to join the neuronal ...

hay fever and relapse?!

Hi @all,

maybe someone has an idea or a similar experience...

Have you ever experienced any connection between allergy (as e.g. hay fever) and relapses?

The phenomenon: my younger sister (dx with MS Nov 2006) has severe hay fever, she always needs antihistamine etc. in spring and summer. Now she has a relapse ( :( ) with changes in sensation in her leg but the strange thing: ...

diet for SPMS?

Hey gang. Anyone with SPMS or PPMS had any luck with dietary regimens? About a month back, I started following the Best Bet Diet pretty rigorously. And though I've lost some weight, I haven't noticed anything tremendous in my lousy legs, bladder, or other affected body parts (I'm a 33 year old male with SPMS, originally diagnosed in 2000). I realize a month may not be long enough, but with all the other things this ...

Support Group?

I want to start by thanking everyone o this site, there is a wealth of information shared, as well as just a good attitude.

I work for the Advocate health System, and am involved in opening an offsite Imediate Med Care place quite close to where I live.
The building has a community room which no one seems to have a use for as yet.

My thought was to start an MS support group for ...

Salk research

An interesting bit in the article is:

"the immune system attacks oligodendrocytes"

I've seen this theory elsewhere. I'm not sure if it means at the same time as the attacks on the myelin sheath, or rather that the destruction of the oligodendrocytes leads to problems with the myelin sheath which then leads to further attacks ??????????

Hearing loss

I need some help on this potential symptom. It's only been one day so I may be freaking out, but the issue came on in dramatic fashion (overnight) and I can't figure out a root cause. I went to bed last night 100% baseline normal. Eyes a little blurry, legs a little weak, needing to pee, but otherwise normal. I wake up this morning and my left ear is ringing/roaring like I went to a ...
