Receiving Campath before it is approved for ms?

I may be mistaken but I think I heard of some people being prescribed Rituxan in the past to treat their ms even if it hasn't been officially approved for ms yet. I know that Campath can have some pretty serious potential side effects. My question is; do you think someone could ever be able to receive a prescription for Campath before it is officially approved for ms?

I do not qualify to be in ...

Completed mesenchymal stem cell trial

I just stumbled over a MSC trial that has already been completed (03/2007).
The Bristol, Libanon, Jerusalem trials claimed to be the first in patients with MS. Can anyone see a major difference compared to this trial?

Reimported Cop

Anyone else have a problem with reimported Cop?
The online chemist buys it where it's cheapest, good for him. At the moment it is cheaper if he buys reimports from France. Each syringe has a little sticker on it over the French text, saying the same stuff in German. The little stickers prevent the syringes from fitting properly in the autoinjector sometimes.
Anyway, the first one of these vials got stuck in the injector and ...

Recommendations for MS specialist in Los Angeles?

First, thank you all for your very warm and supportive responses to my introductory post in September. I haven't been on this site in two months, as I've been working very long hours on a TV show and under a lot of pressure (stress and exhaustion -- not so good for fighting this monster, eh?). I am moved by how kind the people here are.

The Neuro I've seen twice at UCLA, Dr. Norman Namerow, ...

Discontinuing My Avonex Injections

Hi everyone - I've been lurking for awhile and finally decided to post. I just quit injecting Avonex two weeks ago after doing the injections for just about two years. I couldn't take the side effects any longer which after two years never really subsided. On my "good" nights I would experience all the typical flu-like symptoms but after every several "good" nights I would experience extreme side effects (uncontrollable shaking - convulsion like, headache, ...
