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.

Still no callback from JH...

Hey Everyone,

I can finally post here freely again, since my father is no longer being prosecuted and thus he and his attorney are no longer reading everything I post in public forums on the Internet in an attempt to discredit me as a witness. (Nice, huh?)

So JH has still not called me back. I had to cancel my appointment for August because I needed my wisdom teeth removed. They assured me on at ...

Hello, once again...

Hi all.

I have been a (silent) member of this group a few years ago for a very brief period of time and I am back, once again with a new nick. Once again, I intend to be quiet because I am over depressed and I don't want to "infect" anybody else with my suicidal thoughts.

I am male, 28, with MS since 17 and maybe earlier. I used to be ambulatory, but a year ...

just back from my pre-screening

I just got back from my pre-trial screening. The site I am looking at is in the final stages of hopefully getting approved. I should know by next Monday latest. A lot of things concerned me about the site and trial. I would be the 1st participant at this site. That means possibly not as much experience with Campath as a site that has given many already. Otherwise the site seemed fine. There is a ...
