Testosterone

Dear all,

I am off to Mauritius on Wednesday so will not be logging on again until after Easter (admit it you're all jealous).

The research is coming in thick and fast so I'll be interested to see what else has arrived when I return.

But here's one for my best friend Sharon - she's big on hormones and it looks like she's be barking up the right tree. As usual a small trial, but ...

Better Rebif

A new and improved Rebif. Can't really see if it actually does anything better for the disease.

It's funny that as new therapies are on the horizon that Biogen published info yesterday that Avonex after first CIS substantially delayed dx of MS and now Serono has come up with a better Rebif.

The only interesting part of the article was "Serono also is taking a leading role in developing an understanding of the role of ...

Bladder

Not an MS stem cell story but big news today about the use of stem cells to create a bladder. It's good to know that lots of work is going on behind the scens which should, one day, hopefully be of use with this disease (to repair nerve fibres, or myelin. Or to grow another CNS).

I imagine that Biogen must know that the FDA are going to restrict Tysabri to certain groups. So in future, once someone has a CIS they start on Avonex for five years, then when they develop MS proper they move to Tysabri, then once SP they can swap to Daclizumab or Rituximab. ...

EBV

I was in contact today with one of my neuros who is holding an EBV / MS think-tank in May. He said that a lot of research in this area had been undertaken by a Dr Sven haahr (Danish). I did a search on Dr haahr and the first article on the list was:

I think the phrase is what goes around comes around!
