LDN Conference, 20 October. Anyone here, attending? SammyJo?

I wish that I could: http://www.lowdosenaltrexone.org/events.htm

I spoke with Dr. Skip Lenz, months ago, about it. Asked him if those of us who are on both an antibiotic protocol and LDN will be discussed. He told me it will, at least, be mentioned. The myth that it is not safe to take antibiotics and LDN, at the same time, sure needs to be addressed!

Any ...

Three companies have set up a consortium with the government to develop stem cells for safety testing of new drugs through a public-private partnership. The launch of Stem Cells for Safer Medicines, or SC4SM, is significant because “big pharma” has been reluctant to engage in embryonic stem cell research.

Companies fear the reaction in markets such as the ...

Study finds little difference in Copaxone v Rebif trial

Merck KGaA's Rebif multiple-sclerosis drug is not superior to rival Teva's Copaxone, a study obtained by Reuters on Wednesday showed.
"The number of events (relapses) was insufficient to establish a statistically significant difference between the two products, despite a trend advantage for Rebif," the report said.

The 96-week Phase IV study involving almost 800 patients will be presented at the European Committee for Treatment and Research in Multiple Sclerosis (ECTRIMS) in Prague.

Merck inherited Rebif ...

Rebif vs Copaxone

I wouldn't say this qualifies as big news, but if anybody is trying to make a choice right now...
