Tovaxin, oh and abx...

Just a thought which keeps bugging me.

Tovaxin (the MS "vaccine") appears really positive. And from my understanding, its based around killing the immune cells that attack myelin. The doctors breed these from the sufferers own blood.

The thought is, it would be interesting to see if these same T-cells would attack, oh, i dont know, say CPn.

Shot-Night Numero Uno

(By the way, I'm going to post this kind of stuff in my journal from now on but leave it public, in case any of you wish to read it.)

A nurse came to my house, we filled out a bunch of paperwork, then she showed me how to stick a needle into a mango (usually it’s oranges or apples, she said, but a mango was all I had—we agreed it seemed more like human ...

Snarky Website about TV

Hi all,

Time to reveal my other favorite Website
http://www.televisionwithoutpity.com

It's a website featuring professional writers who write recaps of television shows and forums for discussing shows. It's a dual American/Canadian website so it focuses on shows from those countries but there are also threads for shows from other countries (like Sabado Gigante, New Zealand Idol, Queer as Folk)

Three warnings though:
1) The humor is very dark. For example: the thread about how disability ...

Who do you tell?

I recently worked with a woman on a short-term basis. Intelligent, an elder stateswoman in my field, and the sort of person who has the tendency to talk as if you're having a conversation and then not listen as you respond.

At the beginning of our assignment, she was catching a cold and inevitably, by the end, I had picked it up. She gave me her remaining cough drops and condolences, saying something to the ...

Tryptophan trial

The following article claims that a human trial of Tryptophan is being planned (given how MS researchers work we're probably looking at 2-3 years before any results).

http://c.moreover.com/click/here.pl?j420779767&w=464753

The quote I love is: "There are many drugs tested in this mouse model that never pan out. But it's certainly worth testing."

Now it might just be me, but even though my brain is gradually shrinking (the technical term is ...

New health-focused search engine

Came across this the other day. It's a completely health-focused search engine that doctors help build and is run by medical information specialists.

healthline.com

P.S. I already told them in their feedback area that they need an MS channel, since they don't currently have one. You might do the same so that they know we're out there.

Beware the power of placebo

My favorite part of the article about Sativex below, "Three patients (11 percent) withdrew from the placebo group after experiencing adverse events they associated with treatment."

I think this is promising because they also noticed a reduction in relapses in one of the the MS trials they did for Sativex, although the trial wasn't designed to look at relapses and the numbers were too small to draw firm conclusions. This is actually a case where ...

By Ed Edelson
HealthDay Reporter


TUESDAY, Nov. 8 (HealthDay News) -- A new Icelandic study bolsters recommendations that vitamin D supplementation should be increased to help promote bone health and ward off diseases like osteoporosis, American experts say.

"Our data suggest that vitamin D sufficiency ...
