Testimony by Dr John Richert

A couple of weeks ago I posted part of an e-mail I had received from Dr John Richert, Vice Presdient of Research at the NMSS.

Attached is his testimony to the FDA about Tysabri.

Apologies if it has already been posted.

I have previously posted articles relating to Neuren Pharmaceuticals. Much of their research focuses on neuro-protection. Their website states that:

"The compounds developed by Neuren have application not only to acute brain injuries associated with stroke, cardiopulmonary bypass surgery (CPB) and traumatic brain injury but also in chronic neurological conditions such as Alzheimer's Disease, Parkinson's Disease and Multiple Sclerosis".

Their first key drug, Glypromate, is in Phase 2 trials (with the US Army). The company ...

vitamin B

I have not been able to find any discussion on ThisISMS with regards to multiple sclerosis and vitamin B (that's B as in Bromley come back). I did find a few references through Google scholar and they seem to be somewhat contradictory. I was wondering if anyone has looked into this, particularly vitamin B12. The articles I found were:
Reynolds EH, 'Multiple sclerosis and vitamin B12 metabolism' J Neuroimmunol 1992 Oct; 40(2-3):225-30.

My dilemma

Hoping to get some constructive opinions from the bright minds on this board. Right now I have a good job with one of the world's largest companies and therefore have a great benefits package including long-term disability. In otherwords, if I become disabled I will still receive my salary until retirement (I'm 33 now). I have an opportunity to go work for a privately held, smaller company which would be a lot more fun, lot ...

Wyeth Petition to Restrict Compounding Pharmacies ??

Hi all

As some of you know I'm using bio-identical hormones to help manage my MS. These are individually dosed and compounded in accordance with the prescribing physician's recommendations taking into account the results of my hormone level(s) tests.

The compounding pharmacy I use has notified me that Wyeth Pharmaceuticals has filed a Citizen's Petition with the FDA asking the FDA to impose restrictions on the compounding and dispensing of "bio-identical hormone replacement therapy." (BHRT) ...

Article from yesterday's Chgo Sun Times

This is the second article in the last two weeks that the Sun Times has run on Tysabri and this woman. Thought maybe someone would be interested. The tone of the article seems doubtful but she is very much an advocate. ... p_docnum=1

Commencing Lipitor

Just to announce that my doctor has prescribed Lipitor for me, for MS and so I will probably commence it this coming week. He suggested starting with 20mg per day and ramping up from there. He encouraged me to continue to take 500mg CoQ10 per day.

I am also on LDN, abx regimen, supplements etc.

Any Lipitor advice would be welcomed, such as when to take it during the day, the ramping process, other suggestions ...

Monotherapy Question

Has anyone heard how much time needs to lapse between immunosuppressive treatments and Tysabri? I'm going to have one more Novantrone infusion next week.
