Scientists working at the MRC National Institute for Medical Research have shown ...

Fasting could offer protection from chemotherapy effects

I wonder if this approach would make chemo more or less effective for MS. How immune cells are effected by starvation I guess is the real question.

A new study is suggesting that short-term fasting could help protect cancer patients against the effects of chemotherapy.

Scientists from the University of Southern California have found in experiments with mice that fasting strengthens healthy cells but not cancer cells, and they are optimistic such strategies could be ...

I have been trying to get hold of a private prescription for Aimspro for some time. My GP and neurologist say no, as do many private doctors that I have contacted. I just want to give it a go, but I am failing at the first hurdle. I am looking for a doctor in the Surrey or south west London area who is prepared to consider prescribing it for me. Does anyone have any good ...

Second round of Campath and having a baby

Does anyone know the rationale behind the studies administering a second (or third/fourth) round of Campath? Or could anyone formulate a hypothesis?
Why would HiCy be a once-in-a-lifetime thing, and Campath not? Aren’t they both “rebooting” the adaptive immune system (killing all lymphocytes)?

And does anyone know whether you need immunizations again after Campath (bromley? Raven? Lab Rat)? I would think that if it had the same mechanism behind it as HiCy, one would need ...
