Saving Neurons and Memories

Physicians can treat the symptoms of Alzheimer's disease and other neurodegenerative disorders, but there is no way to prevent or reverse the underlying degeneration and death of neurons that characterize these diseases. Now research by scientists at Harvard and MIT suggests a potential new therapeutic approach.

Copaxone for ppms? (also posted in general disscussion)

Hi All:

I haven't posted for a while but I was interested to see if anyones neuro is advising them to use copaxone for ppms as mine is?

I've never had a relapse, just a slow decline over 6 years.

I have a very high degree of confidence in this group. They are researchers and only treat MS patients. It seems they believe that copaxone will provide some level of "neuro protection." This has put ...

Reaching the "tipping point"

What is that you ask? I have recently been wondering why in the hell a simple foot injury (a neuroma) would be having such a profound effect on my psyche. I have this foot problem that I probably got from working out (according to my DPM) and it has caused me to slow down and walk without putting weight on the ball of my right foot. It is temporary and I know it, but for ...

Aspiring fitness competitor w/MS looking for ideas

Hi everyone!
In 2003, prior to my diagnosis(in 1/05), I competed in fitness. Now I have decided that while I am doing ok I want to do one more, just in case I cannot in the future. I am having difficulty with the training. Unlike before, I have to deal with the side effects of the medication (avonex), try to lose body fat w/o raising core temp, space out my workouts, try to follow a ...

Well anyway, don't want to go on too long, just wanted to say HI ...

neuropsych assessment and cognitive retraining

Hi there

I recently underwent a full neuropsych evaluation and I just wanted to say that I found the whole process very interesting. The professor who conducted the assessnment was very warm and empathetic and although it was long and exhausting (6 hours over 2 days), the report was an eye opener!

My Oncologist (I had cancer 10 yrs ago and stiill go for regular checks) is something of an expert on interferons in general as it is commonly used for the treatment of certain cancers. She told me that I could not have any vaccinations whilst on interferon, or for 3 months after stopping ...
