FTY720 Phase II data

Phase II data looks impressive. Probably 3 years from coming to market (my guess).

The following also looks interesting, but there is no data on EDSS (yet).

In addition to its anti-inflammatory effects, preclinical data suggest that FTY720 may have the potential to reduce neurodegeneration and enhance repair of the central nervous system (CNS) affected by MS.

new rebif

Shame they couldn't have improved its efficacy! The bottom line is it still only reduces relapses by around 30%, but it's easier to take.

Tysabri and Diabetes

Does anyone know if being a diabetic (either pill and diet modification or diet modification only) will hinder someone from getting Tysabri? I have a friend at a @#$%^&*()^% DR today and I know that DR will probably say you can't take it because of his blood sugar. He has been borderline diabetic for a couple of years and steroids has really pushed it over the edge.

Bubonic plague

This should cheer everyone up who is following the Cpn theory. In this week's New Scientist (23 September 2006) there is an article, "If it stops plague, will it stop hospital superbugs?" which describes "relatives of the plague, such as chlamydia" sharing the same mechanisms which evade the innate immune system. Nice to know our disease may be related to the Black Death.

The article fortunately has researchers modifying the plague bacteria, Yersinia pestis, which ...

I had such a bad day

Yesterday was a frightening day... I had not slept properly, not done my exercises (all because of time restraints and changes in the schedule) and was stressed by water in my basement. Mannnn, did I ever get it. My leg did not want to respond to me at all. I had forgotten how to walk and my balance was terrible. I am so afraid of becoming totally useless.
For the first time, the future was ...

NMSS funded research

A list of recently funded NMSS research is attached. Rather annoyingly they cannot afford to fund a trial of estriol but manage to fund numerous mouse focused research. Some of this stuff is a bit deja vu - and there's the usual promise that the research might lead to better treatments etc. There's even some research on histamine - which should please HarryZ.

Scary Reaction to Copaxone

I am currently on Copaxone and Prednisone w/famotidine (a strong prescription strength pepsid). I'm only on the prednisone to help boost my arms injury but according to my doctor the two meds together are not known to have any reactions.

A bout a week ago I took my shot (I believe it might have been a day or two after I was prescribed the prednisone when I had started the copaxone injections about a week ...
