Astrazeneca sucks

It's never good to see a company abandoning the development of new MS treatments. Astrazeneca doesn't have anything in advanced clinical trials at least. I take their announcement to mean they won't be trying to find new things, but the drugs they're already testing will continue. Time will tell.

Apitope vaccine stops MS in its tracks

By Mike Nagle

06/11/2007 - UK biopharmaceutical firm Apitope has developed a vaccine that could halt multiple sclerosis in its relentless march to destroy nerve cells.

Nose bleeds

I was just wondering if anyone has had spontaneous nose bleeds while on Avonex. Its been 3 months on avonex and in the past 2 weeks I have had spontaneous nose bleeds. Not regular nose bleeds, but ones that flow at a high rate and for a long time (3 to 5 minutes). 2 weeks ago while eating supper I had to go and take care of this inconvenience, and today while a client was ...

Finally diagnosed...

Well yesterday at the second neurologist I was finally diagnosed with MS. Since I feel so good(other than my mostly healed optic neuritis in my left eye) I'm really not super upset or worried. They want me to go on either rebif or beta seron, depending on what my insurance covers. I was wondering if I should opt out and participate in the oral beta seron trial. I know I stand the risk of getting ...

Newbie here & at the end of my rope!!!

Hi everyone! I have been struggling for over a year with all kinds of weird symptoms, and finally saw the neuro today. He says I "might" have ms, but more tests are needed. Enough with the tests already!!! My MRI shows 25 lesions located in the periventricular white matter in the subcortical region, and all blood work is normal. My symptoms are as follows: severe ear pain with face numbness, weak right arm, chronically tired, ...

Anyone using enzymes? Lumbrokinase? Serrapeptase? Nattokina

I started using one enzyme, a fibrinolytic, called lumbrokinase about a month ago and 2 weeks later added serrapeptase, a proteolytic and fibrinolytic. Since adding the serrapeptase my symptoms have felt rather worse although a new symptom, twitching finger, has almost stopped. I'm imagining that these enzymes are munching through the debris around my lesions but of course they might not be doing anything at all and it could just be the MS playing havoc ...

What does this mean?

I had an MRI 10 days ago. My Neuro called today and said no new lesions, but the ones you have are more prominent now. Does "more prominent" mean anything? I'm so confused, please explain if you can.
