Hello from Michigan's Upper Peninsula--USA

Hi my name is Tammy, I am 32 years old with Relapsing Remitting MS.
I had my first attack in 1999 and was not actually diagnosed until 2001. I will soon be starting Rebif injections as the disease has progressed. I take each day at a time. That is all you can do with this disease! My most aggravating symptoms are dizziness, drop foot, mood swings and cognitive problems to name a few! I wish ...

My Tovaxin Experience so far

Howdy all,

I have been watching what has been going on here at the Tovaxin forum with great interest but have remained silent on how things are going for me in the study. I received my third injection last Thursday so here is how things have gone for me.

I went in for my first treatment on March 23 and the whole deal was uneventful. As a side note, it was very important that the ...

Probiotic and regulatory T-cells

This isn't directly about MS, but discovering that certain probiotics can influence the number of regulatory T-cells is a new twist, especially when you consider how often digestive dysregulation crops up with regard to auto-immune disease:

Tracking a B-cell enzyme in living mice

Hello everyone,
We've talked before about where and how B cells mature from "naive" cells to "memory" cells, and how that process might be responsible for autoimmunity. During an infection, B cells migrate to the so-called Germinal centres where they divide rapidly. The enzyme AID causes random mutations at this point, presumably in the hope that this scattergun approach will stumble across the best defence. Unfortunately, any one of these random cells could have an ...

T-Cell vaccines

I know its a tovaxin forum, and i know its had a higher published success rate, but why is it that there are so many people excited about a phase IIb treatment (Tovaxin) over a similar treatment (in my understanding of the theorys) already in Phase 3 ??

If / Once it gets to market, I am sure they will improve its effectiveness to close to that of ...

2nd Relapse in 3 months

I just wanted to run this by all of you. I am currently experiencing my second relapse in 3 months. The last relapse affected only my right leg and rear end (before that I had only had one symptom and that was the one that diagnosed me; Nystagmus of the right eye, June 2005). This new relapse is affecting the fingers and palms of both hands, my chest, abdomen and my back. It is not ...

Protein Power

The book, Protein Power by Michael Eades, M.D. and Mary Dan Eades, M.D., may be considered a "diet" book but, having re-read it now for the third time, I find it filled with much good general information--especially about hyperinsulinemia (my favorite subject, as you all know)!

I recommend it to you readers out there.
