Varicella Zoster Virus

Can we all now agree that it is 100% certain that viruses play a role in MS? Gets a bit murkier when you try to figure out how many viruses could be involved and exactly how they are involved...requires further study...check back in 15 years...

Injection site reaction to Tovaxin

Hi to all,

I have corrected a posting on my site concerning my having an injection site reaction. There is a quick link at the top of the site to the information. I have read numerous posts about looking forward to seeing an injection site reaction, and this may act as a reverse placebo effect. If a patient does not see an injection site reaction, they may believe ...

Old Tovaxin threads to Tovaxin Forum?


I dont know how others feel about this, but I think it would be good if the pre-forum threads on Tovaxin moved into that forum. Making it the "one-stop-shop" for visitors and members alike. If possible of course.

Within the "Drug Pipeline" forum there are the threads:
Question about Tovaxin
Tovaxin and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs
Tovaxin press release
Tovaxin Trial Progress
Tovaxin - important update on injection site reaction
T cell vaccination
Tovaxin news ...

Long-term(?) Antibiotic Treatment with Roxithromycin in Patients with Multiple Sclerosis

R. Woesner et al, Dept. of Neurology, Westpfalz Medical Center, 67655 Kaiserslautern, Germany

Hope for all

This is the last paragraph of an interview between Medscape and Dr Cohen, an MS expert. The words are those of Dr Cohen. It is a good
read for starting the new year.

It is the second story at the following website:

"Finally, we have great hopes now for reparative therapies, such as therapies using stem cells or other
technologies, which would allow us to repair long-standing damage ...

A late Christmas present for Harry Z and Lyon. Unlike the other videos you watch, the people in this one keep their clothes on. I can see the two of you now holding hands and drinking beer while playing these clips again and again. At least it will keep the two of you off this site for a few hours. I have received a number of complaints from users with MS asking why some sad ...

Kids with MS

Two articles about kids with MS. As grim as this is, the positive is that it might be easier to identify triggers for the disease in children. The programme for the UK MS Society's research conference in June 2007 is attached and includes a presentation by Associate Professor Brenda Banwell from Toronto on "Environmental and Immunological aspects of paediatric MS - a window into the earliest events in MS pathogenesis". ...
