After my first round of steroids

I had a lot of 'symptoms' previously, including a ton of sensory issues.

minocycline vs. doxycycline in CAP protocol

AAN 2008 roundup?

In the previous years Art Mellor always had a roundup of the AAN conference on his accellerated cure website.
This year it does not seem as if he had attended the AAN 2008.

By the way, last year there was a conference at Harvard Medical School and the lectures where online as audio documents.
Has a similar conference of HMS been done in 2008? ...
