daily immunosuppressive therapy

Since Gary has been dxed with Devic's, MS's evil twin, I have been able to step back and question MS therapies. With Devics, the standard treatment is IV steroids or IV chemo type drugs during an attack and then keeping you on a daily immune supressing dose of a selection of suppressive drugs. AZT is given lots as well as methotrexate. Cellcept, what Gary takes, is newly being considered. Devic's is an autoimmune disease as ...

Again not MS but certainly related

:lol: :lol: I'm sure this Dr. must have read some of my ramblings on gut flora and correcting Johns as this is exactly the path John and I started on when they said the MS word in 2005. Leaky gut although not official diagnosed was one of John major problems at that time so we decided to eliminate food ...

Not about MS but really interesting

Not about MS but really interesting how they are now looking more closely to diet when looking at healing our bodies. Watch the movie"An Inconvenient Truth" it's a documentary with AL Gore and the time lines that they establish for when and where things started to go seriously wrong are much the same time lines when disease's started to appear more frequently. Industrialization as well genetically modifying and a host of other's are all caused ...

Stem cell research

Bit on MS is about three-quarters of the way down but is encouraging, particularly given that similar work is also being undertaken in the UK, Europe, Canada, NZ and Australia. My guess is that human trials will begin (somewhere) within 1-2 years, there will be some glitches, but treatments might be available within 5-7 years.

The news from the Charcot Foundation is encouraging as it is a very well respected organisation and Professor Neil Scolding ...

Tovaxin Trial Progress

Hi Everybody,

I had my sign up appointment today. My procurement and baseline visit will be December 29th. My doctor explained everything quite well. One thing I was not aware of is, if I do get the placebo, and things start to get bad with the MS, I can be treated with steroids or even have other treatment if necessary and stay in the trial. I would not want to do that, but it is ...
