AHSCT follwoup over 6 years

26 Patients were followed over diffent periods of time (3-72month).
In the whole group only one new lesion has been seen on MRI.

Quite disappointing in my eyes...

MS Expo in Louisville, KY

I received a postcard in the mail announcing the first ever MS Expo in Louisville, KY on July 26, 2008 from 9am to 6pm. There is a website for more information and to register if you plan to attend. I am not endorsing this event just letting everyone know so that if you're in or around the area you may be interested in attending. I'm kicking around the idea of going.

UK stem cell researcher

Candida and MS

I posted here a long time ago about an odor emitting from my pores, that has gotten worse as my MS has gotten worse.

I'm cleaning the yeast out of my intestines and the odor is going away. My energy is coming back.

I stopped the acetyl-glucosamine because it was irritating my prostate, which is whole other new story.

I read this book recently, the author is Lois Pryce, she's a journalist from Great Britain. She rode from Alaska USA to the tip of Argentina on a motorcycle. Most of it she had a companion of some sort, but a lot of it was traveled ALONE.
