I love Tysabri!!

I had my first Tysabri infusion on December 8. I was EXTREMELY nervous, but I had been on Betaseron for 3 years, and I suffered 2 exacerbations within 5 months, the 2nd of which took me out of work for 4 months! I had developed some spinal cord lesions, which caused some sensory issues in all of my limbs. I had a mild headache the evening of my first infusion, but I took some advil, ...

Anybody here with SPMS for 10+ years who is on Copaxone?

Hi Copaxonites or Copaxonians!

I'm new here, and I have a question. Is anyone around who is on Copaxone and who has SPMS? Better yet--anyone who's had SPMS for more than 10 years and is on Copaxone?

I've had ...

MBP8298 for the treatment of secondary progressive MS

Today, I was offered the opportunity to enroll in the BioMS study looking at the effects of MBP8298 for the treatment of secondary progressive multiple sclerosis. Given that I have slowly but surely progressed in the last few years, I see little options. Let me know what you think.

thanks,

An ingredient in curry shows promise for treating Alzheimer's, cancer and other diseases

By Gary Stix

Searching for new drugs by milling through ancient folk pharmacopoeia or by just picking a plant while walking in the woods has a decidedly checkered history. Many well-established therapeutic compounds originated in trees, shrubs, mollusks, even dirt. Aspirin came from willow bark, cholesterol-lowering statins from a mold, and the antimalarial artemisinin from a shrub ...

CBS News Wed. Jan. 17

I don't know if anyone else saw the CBS evening news on Wed. but the subject was the human brain. I think Katie said it was part of a week long series on the topic. The two main subtopics seemed to be brain atrophy due to aging and neuro. diseases such as Altzheimers and dementia. They reported on research that apparently shows that these problems could be slowed down or even reversed. The answer seems ...

Fantastic MS research summary

This might be my favorite research summary of all time. Nice, brief overview of MS at the beginning, followed by a description of every experimental treatment type and all the representative clinical trials for each type of treatment. A lot to absorb, but worth the effort I think.
