Why will my neuro not prescribe Tysabri?

Not sure where to post this question, so I figure the general discussion might be best...

A bit of background info: I live in Canada, I have drug coverage through work and Tysabri is covered at the same level as the CRAB’s. Tysabri is available with a doctor’s prescription.

I’ve been diagnosed since 2005 and upon diagnosis, my neuro labeled me primary progressive. At a follow up visit in June 2006, he re-confirmed his PPMS ...

How do you know what type you have???

I am newly diagnosed (11/06). I haven't had my appointment with an MS Specialist yet (5/07), and wanted to know how some of the posters know they have RR or SP? Is there a test, is it tracking of symtoms/attacks? I was diagnosed about 2 weeks from my first symptom, so I am new to MS and am still trying to figure out the basics. My Neurologist assumed RR, but how do you know???

Effectiveness of Treatments Survey

Okay - so I know I am new but I stumbled on this website today. Yes it's people's subjective opinions of what is working, what's hurting and what's not but it's still pretty darn informative when there are so many choices same as in MS. So many of the treatments below are MS treatments as well.

Any chance ThisIsMS could do a survey like this?

Message for All Current Tysabri Patients

Hi everyone,

As some of you know, I was one of the MS patients that testified (via video) before the FDA AC Hearings on March 7, 2006, in an effort to voice a patient's opinions re: Tysabri and try to bring Tysabri back to those of us who want/need it as an option to fight our disease.

A small group of us formed the all-volunteer non-sponsored website http://www.mspatientsforchoice.org/ that provides accurate and up-to-date information on ...

THIS IS MS

Hi - This is my first post.

I have been following this website for a month now. Those of you posting on this website ROCK! I love finding a community of people who seem so well educated, proactive and so open to finding an answer to improve their personnel or loved one's lot in life rather than waiting for it to flow off the pen of their doctors.

So - Thanks to everyone on this ...

Atrophy

Interesting answer about atrophy and axonal damage. Good to hear that research is very active in this area and work underway looking at neuro-protection. Sometimes when I read these sorts of answers, I'm still not clear if it is the myelin which is damaged first and then the axons, or the axons are damaged first resulting in secondary damage to the myelin!

IL 23

Increased IL-23p19 expression in multiple sclerosis lesions and its induction in microglia.

Li Y, Chu N, Hu A, Gran B, Rostami A, Zhang GX.
Department of Neurology, Thomas Jefferson University, Philadelphia, PA, USA.

IL-12 has long been considered important in the pathogenesis of multiple sclerosis. However, evidence from recent studies strongly supports the critical role of IL-12-related proinflammatory cytokine IL-23, but not IL-12, in the development of experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE), an animal model ...
