Genes

Her goal: Put MS out of business

Martha Crowninshield brokered high-stakes business deals all the time as a venture capitalist.

But never before had she been involved in a deal with a payoff that could help millions of people worldwide. Crowninshield is a major player in a landmark effort to search the human genome for genes that put people at risk for multiple sclerosis.

Apology to Sharon

In a response to another post on a different thread I made a sarcastic comment which, in retrospect, did nothing but contribute to the problem I was supposedly addressing: to promote a healthy community of discussion and information sharing. I apologize for this to Sharon and any others effected by it. Every time I "dash off" quick internet responses I find I may yield to impulse rather than thoughtfulness.

Intrathecal Methotrexate

Is anyone else on this treatment? I have received two infusions so far with no adverse effects. My neurologist STRONGLY recommended that I start this unapproved treatment. I did really well on Mito, but I have reached the maximum number of doses - and my MRI is a mess again. He feels these treatments will keep my disease in check until tyserbi reaches the market. I still feel like a guinea pig, starting a new ...
