Betaseron for CIS

These stories make me angry and happy at the same tiime. In the last year the CRAB manufacturers have tried to convince us that their therapies should be continued when the dreaded SP MS has been reached, there was news of a trial combining one of the beta-interferons with Copaxone, and now they want us to start them before dx of MS. That's the angry bit - they are trying to milk as much as ...

Genomed

Dignan,

Hadn't heard of this one. I'm always wary of trial with one person. I love the bit that say's GenoMed conducts trials for free, and then charges $800 per patient per year once results have been published. What if the results say that the drug was crap and had no effect?

Hormones and myelin

Sharon,

This is my be nice to Sharon week. Another article on hormones.

My advice for men on how to avoid MS - avoid EBV; don't use sunscreen; don't drink from aluminium cans; up your testosterone levels. Not sure how you achieve the last one.

Article about making clinical trials better

Fantastic article about clinical trials and the balance between doing no harm and causing harm by doing nothing.

Fortune Magazine - February 9, 2006 - For six hours on Nov. 8, 2005, time moved so slowly for Frank Burroughs and Steve Walker that it seemed to stop altogether. The two had come to a dreary ...

Selective T cell stimulation

Selective T cell stimulation could help improve treatment of autoimmune disease and cancer
Medical Studies/Trials
Published: Thursday, 23-Feb-2006

The findings could also be significant for developing new ways to help patients with autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, or juvenile diabetes.

The study, which was published in the February 16 issue of the online journal Science Express, showed that these injections caused a massive selective increase in the immune system's two main types ...

And another story

The clinic in Holland must be turning customers away. A consultant neuro in the UK probably earns £100,000. Sacking a few would help fund treatments for MS patients. It's a sad state of affairs when the medical profession can do nothing to help someone so young in such a dreadful situation.

Another stem cell story

Not a day goes by in the UK press without an 'MS sufferer / stem cell treatment in Holland story'. Here's another. The view of the UK neuro profession seems to be that this treatment is a waste of time (and money). But in most case they don't have anything else to offer their patients.
