Value of CRABs

The UK health system is very different from the US - all services (operations etc) are free. No insurance claims etc.

When the CRAB drugs were introduced their cost-effectiveness was questioned. The National Health Service buys all the drugs before distributing them to patients and set up a risk sharing scheme with the CRAB companies. The effectiveness of the CRAB drugs are being monitored and if after ten years are shown not be effective (or ...

T Cell vs B Cell Thearpies

My husband has tried all the ABC drugs, Lipitor, ABX protocol, high dose chemo, and steriods iv with no positive change-we are doubtful about any treatment at this point. Docs want him on Tysabri, but we live in rural Alaska and will not have access to Tysabri until the hospital is certified.

His MS doc in Seattle sent a link to a discussion about T cell vs B cell thearpies that I thought this group ...

New to Lipitor - So glad I found this chat board!

I am a 38 YO Public Health Doctor (DrPH) (Epidemiologist) who was diagnosed with MS 1 year after finishing my Doctorate in 1997. Was on copaxone for a while and solumedrol - which literally almost killed me. I've chosen to be med free for 3 years but am sadly watching this disease take its course and take control over my life. I am now almost unable to walk. My girlfriend - an MD trained at ...
