First injection today : /

Hi everyone :) I'm newly diagnosed with MS and just did my first Avonex injection about 30 minutes ago. Was much easier than I had thought it would be.
It was only a 1/4 dose so I'm hoping initial reactions will be mild... guess I'll find out as the night goes on.

Anyway... just wanted to say hi.. and I'm glad there is a forum here for ...

Plasmapheresis

Hey Dig,
I found some links you wrote a while back (07 I think) on Plasmapheresis and wondered what the current news is.

Thanks,
Lars

Go to newsweek.com for the entire article. Encouraging!!!! Lets all think positive!!! Positive energy!!!

Patients will be closely monitored with MRIs for the first year and followed for a total of 15 years. And trial volunteers will have complete injuries "with no hope of recovery," making the risk worth the potential payoff, says Okarma. Geron's mantra is "living cells will be tomorrow's pills," he says. And he is confident it will get there. So confident, ...
