Another one for copaxone!

I finally saw the right doctor! And he has recommended copaxone (apparently beta interferons are not a great idea if you have a history of epilepsy & depression).

I see the MS nurse on tuesday next week and we'll see what happens from there - if anybody has any advice / thoughts / knowledge to share I would appreciate it.

Phase II for LymphoStat-B

A lupus medication fast-tracked for MS- more B cell activity....

LymphoStat-B® (belamumab) is a human monoclonal antibody that inhibits the biological activity of B-lymphocyte stimulator, or BLyS®. BLyS is a naturally occurring protein discovered by HGS. In lupus and certain other autoimmune diseases, elevated levels of BLyS are believed to contribute to the production of autoantibodies – antibodies that attack and destroy the body’s own healthy tissues.

DURHAM, N.C. – Researchers at Duke University Medical Center have uncovered definitive evidence that a small but potent subset of immune system B cells is able to regulate inflammation.

Using a new set of scientific tools to identify and count these cells, the team showed that these B cells can block contact hypersensitivity, the type of skin reactions that many people have when they brush against poison ivy.
