Study: high-dose Cytoxan effective for RRMS, not so for SPMS

This abstract looked at a population of 23 patients who underwent high-dose cyclophosphamide treatment, and concludes that the treatment was very effective in treating RRMS, but ineffective in treating SPMS and PPMS patients. This pretty much confirms what most of us have been hearing about the treatment... ... 1&SRETRY=0

Cure in our lifetime?
