Aaron, just to a note to say I posted my 2 cents with the FDA. Asked them to bring Tysabri back with a warning label.

After Novantrone Cellcept

Hi all,

I am visiting this excellent site for quite a while now and believe me it has helped us (me and my wife) a lot to plan our nexts steps. My wife (41 years old) exactly one year ago had a very aggressive attack and she was dx for RRMS. Our neuro (open minded enough), put her immediately on NOVANTRONE. She managed to recover close to 100% after 6 months. For the last 3 ...

Greetings from Tokyo

My 15-year-old daughter was recently diagnosed with MS. This was understandably heartbreaking for our family. She has started on Betaferon at the suggestion of our neurologist.

Let me point out that a) we are American and don't speak Japanese b) Betaferon is the only disease modifying drug on the market in Japan c) Japan doesn't have much MS. For these reasons, I am especially grateful for the information I am finding on your site. I ...

Long-term antibiotics do not cut heart attack risk

Thought this might be of tangential interest...

"Long-term antibiotic treatment designed to fight a common but stubborn bacterial infection does not reduce the risk of heart attack, according to two studies released on Wednesday.

Previous studies found that more than three-quarters of heart attack patients were infected with Chlamydia pneumonia, a bug present in the fatty plaques that clog arteries"

Re-educating the immune system - research in diabetes


Has anyone looked into the research by Dr. Denise Faustman and her colleagues at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) regarding their new approach to diabetes?

I first found out about it here:

In short they are examining a method of re-training an immune system to stop attacking it's own cells.

Apparently, if proven correct, their findings may have huge implications for other autoimmune diseases such as MS. The research looks promising.

Kind regards.

Low-sat fat diet, omega-3s, ALA, statin, Ginkgo, Copaxone

My first exacerbation was in 1996, so I have had MS now for 8 1/2 years. I have had a total of four exacerbations, each milder than the last. I have no disabilty, and no symptoms of MS, and my last exacerbation was three years ago.

However, I have no idea whether to credit my regimen for my good health thus far. I strongly suspect someone else with more aggressive disease might have followed my ...
