Rate your Neuro

I haven't been around here much for a while, so maybe this is redundant, but has anybody seen this website that someone who posts on MSWorld has started?

http://msneuroratings.com/ratings/

I thought it was kind of neat. I haven't posted to it (under Tennessee), mainly because the two posts under it already cover my former neuros. :P The only thing I would ...

FTY720

Dear all,

This is from the Boston Cure Project site:

art writes "No link for this one, but Novartis sent a letter in April to investigators participating in their trial of FTY720 in people undergoing transplant patients. It seems that there have been 13 cases of macular edema (swelling of the center of the retina) out of 1600 transplant cases. Five of these had no other risk factors and the Opthamology Advisory Group has confirmed ...

Lawsuit: Similar Article - A Little More Detail

Here is another Boston Globe press release that just provides a tad bit more detail as to the allegations contained in the lawsuit against Biogen/Elan .

It almost sounds like me talking (a few months ago). How odd, huh? I will highlight.

Please also note below some clarification regarding "informed consent" (i.e. clinical "waivers") that I tried to explain many times in the past (very passionately, I might add), and which I just answered ...

Measles, B Cells and MS

Dear all,

This paper is really for the scientists among us (which I'm not). However, I sort of understand what it says - that anti-bodies to MS are increased in MS sufferers and the B cells play a part in progression of this disease. I have seen elsewhere that B cells (in addition to T cells) are being studied in terms of their role in MS and that some future treatments are targetted at B ...

Pleased but puzzled

I posed this question in an earlier thread but it did not receive a response. Perhaps everyone is on holiday or I phrased the question badly? However, being the persistent little soul that I am – here it is again.

I have to confess I am still struggling to figure out exactly how this stuff is working so the following is a “think bubble” for anyone to comment upon.

To set the scene:- I have ...
