New from Lisbon

Hi!

I’m new in this forum and I have been reading your post with interest. I would like to introduce myself. I’m 45 years old women, live in Lisbon and I have MS since 1989. Since 2000, I think MS became progressive.
My brain it’s not been affected (until now) and my big problem is my legs, I need canes to walk and I get tired very soon. I’m always trying to find something new ...

V. significant research

BBC are reporting "The world's first pure batch of nerve stem cells made from human stem cells has been created at Edinburgh University". See Bromley's post in the Stem Cell forum http://www.thisisms.com/modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&t=1412.

(Thought this story deserved wider attention :) )

Neural stem cells

Dear all,

Another advance in nerve stem cells. This is one area where advances are being reported almost every week. Somewhere along the line this must benefit us.

What is LDN

Hi everyone I am very new to all of this. I hear alot about LDN but have never really heard what it is. I have a box of Avonex in my fridge and after 2 months still haven't tried it. It cost me $615.00, the Drs. just scared me so much into ordering it and once it got here I started to freak out.

It seems like the side effects could be so hard on ...

Anti-biotics - had your fill of them?

Dear all,

The great plus point about this site is it's scientific approach and the fact that debates are undertaken on a range of issues. Current and possible future treatments are discussed e.g. stem cells, statins. Dignan's work on all the treatments currently in trial provides us with hope and a good source of information when we visits our neuros to discuss treatment options. Well informed discussions have also taken place on the Tysabri fiasco. ...

Personal account of response to Aimspro

I am not linked to Aimspro, or to any charity or organisation linked to Daval. I attained Aimspro through a prescription from my doctor and paying Daval their asking price. Although not cheap, I wouldnt call it exhorberant considering the costs they have probably incurred thus far.

I have now undergone two injections, about two weeks ago.

I have found that aimspro had only a little affect on my MS symptoms (0 to 10% if ...

Antibiotic trial NCT00043264

NCT00043264 is a phase II clinical trial looking at antibiotic treatment of MS. Double-blind, placebo controlled, all that good stuff. It should have been finished something like 9 months ago. Does anyone know if the results were released? I haven't heard anything. It would be nice to get some scientific data about treating MS with antibiotics. The results could either jumpstart more people receiving such treatment or serve as a warning flag for those considering ...
