Intrathecal Methotrexate

Is anyone else on this treatment? I have received two infusions so far with no adverse effects. My neurologist STRONGLY recommended that I start this unapproved treatment. I did really well on Mito, but I have reached the maximum number of doses - and my MRI is a mess again. He feels these treatments will keep my disease in check until tyserbi reaches the market. I still feel like a guinea pig, starting a new ...

Research on repairing brain damage


Brain knitting

April 13, 2006 - Nature - Materials Update - Healing brain and spinal-cord injuries is one of the most desirable, but challenging, goals of regenerative medicine. Molecules that self-assemble into nanoscale filaments may show the way.

Reata Pharmaceuticals

This doesn't even qualify for the research pipeline since the company doesn't appear to have a specific drug targeted at MS yet, but they look like they're doing something a bit different by concentrating on protein misfolding.

AI Disease, Response Starts Early, MS and Type 1 diabetes

In essence, the two diseases are, in a test tube, virtually identical. It’s only their final expression of what self tissue is attacked which differs.
  • It compliments the research by Guggenmos et ...

Relapse occuring like flu?

Hey, I'm sorry to ask for advice again, but here goes.

I had imagined that relapses would be fairly straightforward ... like ... awakening to find a numbness in an arm or leg. But my first episode was a "flu" that got worse and worse until I wasn't able to walk or use my hands very well and was thinking and talking somewhat incoherently.

I had thought that was a freak onset. Except now I ...
