Virus Info for Bromley


Here's some more info reinforcing (I think) a potential link between viruses and a subset of people with RRMS.

Subtype of MS Defined by An Activated Immune Defense Program
We conclude that the transcriptional signature of the PB cells reflects the heterogeneity of MS and defines a sub-population of RRMS patients, who exhibit an activated immune defense program that resembles a virus response program, which is supportive for a link between viruses and MS

Anybody with MS covered by Lumenos consumer-driven health care insurance? Do the cost of the CRAB drugs eat up the up-front employer contribution? How do other consumer-driven health care plans handle things?

Update-Netherlands Daughter

My daughter continues to improve dramatically on her treatment. For those of you who have MS, you can understand better than I the fatigue. For 3 years, it has taken every ounce of my daughter's energy to just get up out of the bed in the morning. Last week, she water-skied for ages! She was so EXCITED!!! She is still on her Avonex and Lexapro and down from 600 to 300 m. of Tegretol. Has ...

Online collaboration

Aaron, I thought that on a few issues it might be useful if we could have reference pages which people work collaboratively to annotate/update (wikipedia model). There have, for example, been lots different threads with info on blood tests that would be useful in identifying potential contributing factors (B12, Uric Acid, VitD). If we could collaborate on a list of essential and optional blood tests I think that would be huge help for people to ...

MS and cancer

I was wondering if anyone has come across any research linking MS and cancer or perhaps any of the MS drugs and cancer, (even more specifically breast cancer)? I have been hesitant to post this but need to research this now as I was very recently dx'd with breast cancer. Fortunately it was caught very, very early. I just want to see if there is any possible link or if it is just very bad ...
