IVIG - not effective

Intravenous immunoglobulin in relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis: a dose-finding trial 28 July 2008

OBJECTIVE:

Several studies have reported a reduction of relapses after the long-term administration of IV immunoglobulin (IVIG) to patients with relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS), but they were mostly small and differed in terms of predefined outcome variables and treatment regimen. We therefore set out to test two different doses of a new formulation of immunoglobulin termed IGIV-C 10% for suppression of both ...

Hello

Hello fellow PWMS and people who love them.

I am a forty-something female living with RRMS some 16+ years. My primary symptoms are balance, sensory issues, lower body strength and ON. I walk, sometimes with a cane and sometimes not.

My hubby and I work from home. It's a huge relief to me after battling bowel urgency issues for years. They went away when the stress did, though.

We have 5 grown children (his) and ...

Postpolio/ MS similarity

BACKGROUND

Hi everyone!
I have had MRI's of my brain and spinal cord this spring in preparation for investigating revimmune as a possibility.

I have had a progressive seeming course since spring of '03 (after 12 years of MS before that with a benign course-I have been on Cop since it came out) and at that time I was essentially a 1 or a 2 and I am now on a cane full time.

In ...

MS and Sexual Relationships

I couldn't find any threads here after searching the words "Sex" and "Sexual". I mean there were threads, but none that seemed to be specifically about how having MS effects sex.

Obvioulsy sex involves the nervous system and obviously this can impact all sensations, including sexual ones. I can see where this could be a big topic and I invite comment. But, mostly I have a question that stems from a personal observation.

For us, ...

Reseach into regeneration

Brain cells may regenerate after damage from multiple sclerosis 25 July 2008

Brain cells in areas targeted by multiple sclerosis may regenerate - often years after the initial injury, according to research by a team of Cleveland Clinic neuroscientists.

The finding, published online today, lends further support for the concept of adult neurogenesis -- that the human brain can regenerate itself, and in the case of MS, is working to repair itself.

Multiple sclerosis ...

Phase III revimmune

Anyone know when they are starting phase III?

I figured since they cant see me until januray, I am wondering if thats when phase III starts. I am a little bummed if thats the case because as long as it is open label they can treat more people vs a clincial trial. I may not qualify for the trial vs open label.

Also I was told I have an appt with Dr. Kerr, arent we ...

anyone quit betaseron?

Has anyone used and quit beta seron? I am thinking that the med's are making me worse. I immediately started the drug after I was diagnosed. I seem to have went down hill from there. I am considering quitting the med's. My Dr. says I should stick with it but its been 16 mo's. I am kind of afraid to quit, I cant get any worse. any advise would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you,
Lisa

stolen

Went for an afternoon ride, last week, down to a small creek about 20 miles from our house. I guess we were all just bored. It was Tuesday or Wednesday, I can't remember (ms). Well we were way out in the woods so I decided to shoot my pistol. When we returned to the house I forgot to lock my truck door. Sunday morning I remembered that the pistol was still in my truck so ...

Genteics, again.....

Have received quite devastating news – my 1st husband has just been diagnosed with PPMS which I have had for four years. We married in 1974, had two children (’79 & 80) then stupidly split up around 1984. We are still friends and he is looking to me for advice but I just don’t know how to help him - he is in England and I'm in a w'chair living alone in Spain - I ...
