MS, lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, cancers

I am interested in a simple polling of MSers to get some idea of the co-occurrence of MS with other so called autoimmune diseases and cancers. This would not be a very scientific approach but I am curious if there is a relationship. I do not have MS and do not know anyone personally who does (that I know of). I am involved in drug discovery research at a not-for-profit research center. Our research is ...

I wish you didn't have to read this...

Because if you are, then your young life has somehow been affected by MS.

The good news is that there is hope, and tons of it. And our site is dedicated to providing that hope in the form of information, without a slant towards fattening any given drug company's pockets.

I hope you find our community a useful one, and realize that while it is of course incredibly difficult to deal with a serious issue ...

Team Project: List of every MS Treatment currently in trials

Allright everybody, it is time for a team effort.

This is MS would like to pull together (and maintain) a document showing every drug that is currently in clinical trials for the treatment of Multiple Sclerosis (or its effects, such as fatigue), what phase it is in, who makes it, main mode of action, preliminary results, etc.

While we can get quite far ourselves, this seemed like a great opportunity to get the community involved. ...

Question for Aaron

Hi Aaron....I posted information about the LDN Convention and I also sent you a private message regarding it but have not heard back as of yet. Private message was sent on August 2nd so I'm pretty sure that I should have heard something by now. Is there some other way that I am supposed to get the information regarding the convention to you? Would be nice to set the info on the convention as a ...

Endorphin role in MS

A friend posted me this link. It is not a new study, it dates back to 2003 but it is quite interesting on the possible link between the petide ß endorphin in MS.

A lot of this backs up the Lucchinetti argument (see my boring post on the annal of neurology article on response to Bartlett).

And of course it also relates to LDN. Maybe someone should show ...

To Aaron, re:forum for teens

Hi, Aaron! I'm beginning to think that maybe it is time to do as you suggested and start a forum for teens, and maybe even one for parents of teens. I'm noticing kids on all the boards I use, all of them looking for other kids to talk to, and one has a message board set up for kids, it isn't a very successful one.

I have had two teens to contact me this week ...

Switching from ABC to Rebif

Well... after being on Avonex for what seem like eons... The neuros have decided to switch me over to Rebif....

He said I could take either Beta or Rebif - Didn't matter to him, just needed something stronger than Avonex (I guess he's one of the ones who believes more is better)

Now my actual question.... Since Rebif and Avonex are both Interferonbeta -1a how will this transition be for me? Has anyone else done ...

Heya, folks.

Greetings, all. I just stumbled across this forum and thought I would say "hi". I'm a 36yo male, dx 12/99, on Copaxone now, but also using diet to do what I can. I've had a bit of a symptom flare-up recently with my stress skyrocketing. I'm trying to deal with getting disability insurance forms finished and looking at social security disability. I just can't keep the hours at work up to a managable level. I'm ...
