Open Minded Neurologists...................

..........and the need to work in a multidisciplinary environment.

As an example:

It is all very well for neurologists to be willing, for example to prescribe minocycline for people suffering from MS. They need to think carefully why they are doing it and seek advice from an expert in microbiology.

Most neurologists prescribing minocycline will be doing so because of its immunomodulatory powers, rather than its main use of stalling infection. They might be surprised ...

Joint problems ( stiffness)

HI.

I have not been diagnosed with MS yet but according to my doctor I have some of the symptom. My MRI showed enough to cause concern by my doctor. I am now going to be scheduled to see a neurologist.

I am wondering if anyone can tell me if the have the same symptoms. If I sit down for any length of time, I have a really hard time standing up again, my knees ...

PROVENTUS

www.proventus.org.uk

This is the web site I posted on Sept. 26 titled "Another site to monitor Aimspro." There is a petition to sign for the Aimspro Lobby in the UK on it. I think we all should sign it no matter where we live. What do we have to lose. If it moves quickly in the UK, maybe the FDA will be pressured in the states to approve it ...

An update on Goat Serum from the MS Society in the UK

What is goat serum?
28.09.04

This treatment uses antibodies from the serum (the fluid portion of blood) of goats that have been inoculated with a variety of vaccines, to generate neutralising antibodies.
Antibodies are proteins produced by white blood cells in response to an antigen (foreign protein), to destroy/neutralise the antigen. The strong anti-inflammatory component of the serum is thought by researchers to be 'potentially useful' in the treatment of MS.

Evidence
Much anecdotal evidence ...

Palaeolithic Diet.

Hi I'm a Newbie to the forum. I had a read through an earlier post by Crispy, a lot of good stuff in it but it is getting a little verbose and the last post to it was in July so I thought I'd start a new thread rather than append that one.

I have been dx RRMS for over 10 years and I have not made any dietary change in that time until recently. ...

Gonzo is a Nutcase

Hi All,

Pleased to be here. Not my first time in a forum, but the first time in an MS forum.

I was diagnosed with RRMS some 12 years ago. I am fortunate that my symptoms whilst in remission are fairly minimal. The relapses have been nasty though. I have only had three, but the worst persisted for 3 months.

I have a website which hopefully tells about me and about MS. I am learning ...

Group seeks limits on drug-financed doctors

http://seattlepi.nwsource.com/national/apscience_story.asp?category=1500&slug=Off%20Label%20Drug%20Prescriptions

Doctors who receive drug company funding would be limited in what they could teach other physicians under new rules being proposed by accreditors.

The Chicago-based Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education, which gives its stamp of approval for such classes, was to announce sweeping changes Tuesday to limit the influence of doctors with financial connections to the pharmaceutical industry.

The nation's 750,000 physicians stay up to date on medical advances through mandatory participation in ...

Can the immune system repair brain damage in multiple sclerosis?
September 2004, we take a look at Dr. Alasdair coles study of the immune system and its role in MS repair.

We have treated a small group of people with aggressive relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis using an experimental drug called Campath-1H. This drug deliberately damages the immune system and is good at stopping further relapses. A ...
