Phase Zero

This is an interesting clinical trial innovation. I think it does more to help the drug company/developer than it does the patients.

The zero effect - Small quick trials may help shape the development of new drugs.

Nature -- New clinical-trial results offer not just a modicum of hope for some future cancer patients, but also encouragement for those looking at more efficient techniques for developing new drugs.

Yesterday, scientists from the US National Cancer ...

Acorda Therapeutics has big biotech dreams

(Original Publication: June 4, 2007)

Hi all,

I know there have been posts about colds preceding an attack. While I haven't had that happen at this point, what I have found is that colds hit me much harder then they used to. Has anyone else noticed this?

Exercise with NO balance or energy???

How do you go to a gym/run/walk ANYTHING when you can't walk a straight line? I MUST appear to those on the outside to be FOREVER walking in a drunken stupor.

My daughter goes to school a half mile from home and we walk (we're too close for bus service). By the time I get home (my walk is a mile--- there & back), I'm done!!! Forget about asking me to do ANYTHING that requires ...

Herniated discs causing my walking problems


It has been a while since I logged on. I recently asked a friend of mine who is a radiologist if he can do an MRI of my spine. My back pain was too much to handle. He did one and found that I have three herniated discs and one is a thoracic herniated disc.

My neurologists were quite surprised. I have been doing brain MRIs for the longest time and no spine MRIs. ...
