Need Help

My wife is in the hospital in a small city with meningitis apparently contracted through her MS baclofen pump. The pump was surgically removed and she is being treated for bacterial meningitis, although they can't grow a culture. Their baclofen withdrawal plan seems very funny to me. She has had a small brain infarct and her kidneys are failing from the antibiotic. She is cycling through different awareness presentations every day.

Question: does anyone know ...

Antibiotics don't work on MS?

Gosh, you'd think, as quiet as this topic has gotten, that antibiotics don't work. You'd think we slunk (is that a word?) into the night, ashamed to admit defeat to MS. You'd think none of us had improved on the Stratton or Wheldon protocols and we just stopped posting, because we didn't want to admit it publicly.

Well, I'm here to remind people that few of us post here anymore because 1) we're so busy ...

superoxide dismutase

Once again I believe I have had a bad experience from superoxide dismutase (glisodin). After the most exciting and revolutionary postings on the venous obstructions by Dignan et al I hastily decided to resume superoxide dismutase, despite its consumption being strongly associated with a relapse in February 2008. My thinking was that I had venous sclerosis and superoxide dismutase is good for atherosclerosis so...
Anyway once again this pill seems to have triggered a mini-relapse. ...

Virionyx- MIS416

Need your help. Has anyone heard of this? I have been asked to participate in trials in NZ. Apparently they have had good results with this drug. I spoke to a lady who was treated and she has had good reults. She could not intially stand, was wheelchair bound and could not lift her arms above her head.

She can now stand and lift her arms up.

Any feedback welcomed.

Antibody research

Interesting antibody research ... px?nid=566

I'd like to wish my old friend Lyon a Merry Christmas. We can still use the C work in the UK and haven't been pushed into the Happy Holidays cop out.

Merry Christmas to all the users of the site (even grumpy old Harry Z) and fingers crossed that 2009 will see some more research advances.

Anyone Getting Off Tysabri?

Has anyone gotten off Tysabri? How long do you have to be off Ty before you can start another drug? I asked this question on another forum and didn't really get an answer. Actually, one person answered with a quote from Biogen which seemed very overkill.

I'd appreciate anyones input.
