MS and the contraceptive pill

Dear all,

Black holes

Dear all,

I'm not talking astronomy here - unfortunately, it's what this vile disease does to us. As usual bigger studies are called for (got to keep those researchers employed) and the interferons may have limited efficacy in terms of black holes (yet Biogen's revenue from Avonex last year topped $1 billion - do they offer refunds if it doesn't work?). The need for neuro-protection is called for (as ever).


Interferon does not affect ...

Monoclonal Antibodies (mAbs)

Came across this article on monoclonal antibodies. Interesting to say the least.



Nature Biotechnology 23, 1025 (2005)
King in the kingdom of uncertainty

Monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) are not good drugs, at least they are not good drugs in any conventional sense. Many of the fundamental qualities of mAbs are just the sort of characteristics that used to make pharmaceutical manufacturers run a mile.

Most fundamentally, they are biological molecules and hence intrinsically ...
