Calling "Life on the Ice", please read and respond

Calling the female physician with MS who maybe was posting somewhere else last year under the name of "Life on the Ice". I may be completely wrong here, of course.

IL-12

IL-12 seems to implicated in MS, and this abstract refers to agents to control IL-12 production. I recently read something in Pubmed about quercetin (found in apples among other places I think) having an effect on IL-12. Anybody know of any other drugs / supplements that could have a beneficial effect on IL-12 for PwMS?

Workplace Solvent Linked to Immune System Disorders

Read this article and it made me wonder. . .

Busy Germans

Dear all,

For those interested, I attach links to three recent research papers (summaries). The summary findings are way above my head but the sense I get is that there is a real acknowledgement of how complex this disease is, but also the sense that some progress is being made which should, in turn, lead to better treatments.

Will the side effects ever cease?

I've been on Avonex for 1 year now and still have the normal side effects every week that come with it.

AIMSPRO



It has been over a month since Daval were stopped from producing Aimspro but still no further news from Proventus who are supposed to be promoting the drug.

Daval likewise have decided to remain silent.

I hope this does not mean Aimspro has ended its life already?.

If anyone has any further news please post it.

Regards to all

Brian
