Q&A on Tysabri and Campath 1-H

Dear all,

I recently posted a presentation by Dr Coles on Tysabri and Campath. This week, Dr Coles is answering questions about Tysabri and Campath on the UK MS Society website. Tysabri is not yet approved in the UK and Campath is in trial.

MRF Podcast with Scott Johnson and Dr. Bob Miller

This link will take you to an interesting and informative March 24th interview Scott and Dr. Miller did with host Marc Pelletier of Futures in Biotech. It's about 1 hour. I think the interview was conducted in a way that would make it interesting to both scientists and MS novices. I enjoyed it.
