Tysabri diary

Had my second infusion on sunday morning. After the first one I was wiped out, muscle and joint pain that had gone away came back with a vegenace. The second one has been easier -and I drove a roundtrip of 6 hours on monday, which I haven't done since my last relapse in Nov so perhaps things are looking up.

Stem Cell Transplant Segment on The Early Show

I’m not sure if this is going to work, but I’ll give it a shot. I don’t know if anyone saw this, but it’s a segment that aired on the CBS Early Show today.

Interferons better than originally thought?

Hi Guys,

I had my 6 monthly neuro appt yesterday.
Nothing very exciting really but he told me that interferons seem to be much more effective than originally thought. Obviously i think this is a great thing to hear but have any of you heard this too?
He didn't mention any research or how he came up with that statement.
Is anyone aware of any research about this?
I'm unable to find anything.
