Jaded - progress on abx

I am so pleased to hear the progress many of you have made on the abx and other regimes that I thought I'd let you all know how I am doing.

I have been on the abx since August 2005, and took my first pulse of flagyl just after Christmas. My second pulse finished just over a week ago as I delayed it.

Another research project

This isn't really Bromley (who is taking a well-earned break from MS websites), just someone who sounds similar to him and has the same nickname.

Rituximab (Rituxin) currently in trial looks a very promising therapy. An internet search of Rituximab came across another MS charity (like the Boston Cure Project) who are doing / funding interesting work in California.

Hospital stays vs. steroids--equal in effectiveness

Got to talking with my neuro at yesterday's appointment about how I'm sure there's a correlation between stress and MS exacerbations, and she agreed. Then she told me something very interesting.

She said, in the 1970s, when docs were just at the beginning of studying steroid use and other means to alleviate MS exacerbations, they compared two things: a dose of steroids at home vs. hospitalization, which meant the patient was admitted into a caring, ...
