Bristol / Lebanon

As a positive sort of person (in terms of future prospects for those with MS), I have real hope for the stem cell pilot trial taking place in Bristol, England. Further detail on the pilot trial are attached. Similar trials are taking place around the world. Attached is an article about a trial in Lebanon.

Hi all!!

Yes-another newbie!!

I found you all when looking for info on FTY720-and glad I did!

I was "officially" diagnosed in 2003- but had my first symptoms in 1988. I have relapsing-remitting type, and currently take Avonex. (not to mention the cabinet full of pills!)

I'm really happy I came across this site. It's been almost 3 years (2 weeks shy) since I was diagnosed.
I've been on steroids, beta seron, tysabri, and ivig with steroids. My initial diagnosis was RRMS, but found out Monday my new doc thinks it's SPMS. I'm so-o-o-o-o thrilled, as you can imagine.
I can't believe I haven't found this sooner!

See y'all around. ...

Rebif sides after two years

Does anyone still experience flu side effects after being on Rebif for a long time? I started on Avonex and the flu sides were awful at first but they got better over time. After two years on Rebif I still get the flu sides but keep taking it because it's apparently working (MRI was ok this time)

Question about minocycline

How long does it take for minocycline to start working (when talking about ms and not acne :wink: )?
