Phase 3 trial end-dates

Since we're getting close to the end of some of the phase 3 trials, I thought I'd post a summary of what we know about those trial completion dates. The list below includes only those drugs that have completed enrollment in at least 1 phase 3 trial (e.g. no MN166 on this list).

In order of trial completion:

1. cladribine (Mylinax) (RRMS)

Growth Hormone

You might find it a strange question that I’m about to ask but it sounds logical to me:

Does anybody here have experience with the Human Growth Hormone, HGH?

I am considering starting myself, and I did some research but I found until now only (positive) experiences of bodybuilders.. On their website you can also read that people with AIDS get HGH too (doses defer), for the treatment of their muscle degeneration.

If HGH helps ...

Tysabri Side effects

I have done four infusions for Crohns. Though it has helped the crohns, I am having strong side effects. Including weakness, headaches, ear clogs, waves of joint pain and constant fatigue. Is there anything that can be done to counteract theses effects? This is the only drug that has worked for me but the side effects have been brutal!

Thanks for your input.

Anyone here not taking any MS Meds?

Both me and my x-husband have MS

I've looked at this site before, but just decided tonight to sign up. My former husband and I have both been diagnosed with MS. He, ten years before me. I haven't seen any posts on here about that.

We have a daughter, so of course I'm more concerned now about her risk.

Does anyone know more couples like this? My story is long, but if you want to read about it, just let me know. ...

8 month update, and a long rant.. enjoy....

Well it has been 8 months since my first campath infusion.

I actually have been feeling pretty good lately. I can't say it's a miracle drug or that it has repaired any damage so far. Although, some days my eyesight seems a bit better.

My general energy level is really pretty good and I seem to be able to manage my symptoms better. I think part of that is that I have just learned to ...

NAC and Copaxone

There was a small clinical study done a few years ago (I think in Canada) looking at the combination of Copaxone and NAC. I've seen it mentioned in earlier posts. Though the study was completed, I haven't been able to find any paper written up about it. Does anyone know the results of this study?
