Chia seeds

I found this interesting item in my latest issue (October 2008) of Garden Gate magazine, page 45:
Chia seeds are good for you
Researchers are discovering what the ancient Aztecs knew a long time ago. The tiny seeds of chia (Salvia hispanica) are packed with nutrition and lots of it. But don't go out and eat the stuff growing on your Chia Pet just yet. It's the seeds that contain protein, fiber, calcium, phosphorus and many ...

HiCy in July 2008

I haven't heard from anybody who had the HiCy treatment in July 2008. When I was at JH in July, they were pushing many patients through the treatment. The IPOP and 4-B Ward were getting pretty busy with us HiCy patients.

If you have had the HiCy treatment, post and let everybody know how you are doing.

After the growth factor was out of my system the only thing negative after the HiCy treatment is ...

Long term outcome of ITP and Graves

I had yet to personally read if the two major side effects discussed were long term or temporary, until I came across the following, so I thought I would store it somewhere:
He said the clinical trial so far has yielded five other cases of the bleeding disorder, called immune thrombocytopenic purpura , or ITP. All of those patients were treated and recovered.
So ITP appears to be a treatable condition?
...and two people developed ...

Hey guys and gals! I'm Krissy, I'm 20. I would love to say I have epilepsy and MS and it doesn't have me, but I can't. They're currently kickin' my butt.

I was diagnosed about two years ago with epilepsy, and about 4 months ago with MS. My neuro put me on Rebif, I was on that for just about three months, then my LFTs were over double the amout they should be, so I ...

Gluten-free Diet

Hello all-

So many articles I have read have mentioned that the elimination of Wheat and Gluten in your diet can help slow down the effect of MS for futute exasterbations.

What have the rest of you heard? Is there a real MS diet that has been proven to work?

Thank you in advance for your replies.

EBV and B-cells

Another interesting story can be found on it tells that FTY720 seems to have anti-viral potential - at least in low doses.
Again there may be questions raised regarding an infectious cause of MS...

Just a thought, could it be that immune-system-rebooting (Campath / HDC) acts through killing the infected host-cells of EBV (B-cells) and thereby eliminating the EBV infection, and thus maybe the primary dissease cause?
In ...

Strange symptoms.... MS?

It all started about 4 years ago... I was having strange achilles
tendon pain. It didn't feel like a tear or a bruise... more like
tennis elbow. It would expand into the plantar facia and up into the
calf muscle. It crawled like restless leg. MRI showed minimal to no
inflamation and antiinflamitories didn't help. This has come and went
over the last 4 years.

2 Years ago, some muscle twitching has started and seems ...

fast track?

Hello hello!

Well done to everyone who has participated in Revimmune trials, it all sounds a bit taxing. Well worth it though of course.

Anyway, anyway, I'm writing because I heard a mention that Revimmune would apply for fast tracking through the FDA. Can anyone tell me more? They are about to enter the phase III trial, is this U.S. only? I presume there are plans to market this in Europe? What I really want ...

Weight Gain on Copaxone?

Anyone experience this. I had it with Betaseron and I think on this drug too. Is this common? Im newly diagnosed since the start of 2008. I'm working out daily, swimming and all. Its just coming out of nowhere and I eat good, nothing bad that would cause weight gain.

Anyone experience this? I refuse to pack on pounds for the sake of these drugs...if I should become imobile later on, that weight will be ...
