I know the are a few thoughts out there that strictly targeting T-cells is incomplete. I haven't kept up on the Rituxan trials but received an e-mail today from the Myelin Repair Foundation (that' probably not exactly right) and there seem to be some good results.....except for the death thing. So is it time to look forward to the Tovaxin/Rituxan cocktail? Thoughts on the Rituxan trial? Anyone?

3 years on ldn

This week marks three-years I have been taking LDN. I took 3mg for most of the time and within the last few months have upped it to 4.5mg. There was no real reason to go to 4.5, I just knew from reading that it was the 'optimal' dosage for females if you could manage it and when I had a few days off in a row I started at 4mg (only side effect was some ...

Rebif & shortness of breath

Well, my longtime drug Copaxone stopped working for me last Spring, and I'm now taking Rebif. Trouble is, now I get short of breath very easily (even 1 flight of stairs.) I'm a very fit 41 year-old, I exercise regularly, and eat well. I've been to a pulmonary specialist and all tests came back normal.

Is there anyone out there who's had a similar experience with Rebif? I'm getting ready to ditch this one too, ...

Potential new drug target

Brain drug target discovery in Multiple Sclerosis 18 February 2008
US researchers have found two potential targets for treating multiple sclerosis after an extensive trawl through proteins in the brain.

Comparison of 2,538 proteins from MS patients with those from healthy brains showed damage in two proteins not before linked to the disease.

In mice blocking the effects of the proteins led to reversal of symptoms, the study in Nature reported.

There are about 85,000 ...

My NAG report

Okay so I've been taking N-acetylglucosamine for a few months now ,and while you've read about my success from it, I have found that Glucosamine Chondroitin (Triple Stregth) is much more effective. I feel almost like a kid after taking that. I'm consuming more Triple Strength Chondroitin than I am the NAG, although I still take it.

I just wish all my functions would come back 100%.

Damage is damage and as the Stones say, ...

Looking 4 articles that refute the MS/amalgam/mercury connec

Hi all

I have a naturopathic doctor who is sending me information that suggests a connection between MS and almagam fillings, or heavy metal toxicity.

I lost all my old articles - does anyone have any really good research that refutes that connection between amalgams and MS?

Thanks. I've never had an amalgam filling but I know he'll start saying that I might have picked up a mercury or heavy metal toxicity elsewhere.
