FDA news

This might be a little OT, because it's regarding the flu vaccine. But I just saw this news release and thought I'd post it.

It just seems that lately, the FDA "appears" to have had a recent past practice of being a little "lax" shall we say?

You can't help but wonder what in the world is going on there at the FDA? Ya know? (I've highlighted a couple of statements in this news release ...

Glossary (Interesting Website!)

Hey, folks!

Just now, while posting to the "gray matter" thread that billf started, I ran across this website that I had never seen before. I haven't looked at it in depth yet. It isn't directed to MS, but it looks interesting. It appears to be something on the "philosophical" edge of life in general (mscaregiver may find this one interesting, also, if he hasn't happened upon it yet). Combines biology with neurology, etc.

Anyway, ...

An English translation of an LDN trial protocol is available at the Evers Multiple Sclerosis Clinic in Germany

This should encourage other researchers to proceed as well, and it will make it easier for patients seeking LDN prescriptions, now that a trial has launched.

The protocol calls for a very short duration trial (10 days). Dr. Mir indicates this is an initial pilot study, to be followed by ...

OddDuck / Harry Z – Peace

The exchange of views that we had in the thread “Antegren - Debunking Urban Myths” was useful to the degree that differing viewpoints were exchanged. It was counterproductive, however, in that the language that I used led to both of you being insulted and offended. I apologize that my words have caused you distress. Whatever my enthusiasm for my position, the exchange of views ended badly, and I take the blame for the result.

I ...

Dear all,

The following article was on the BBC's website today. While not directly related to MS there is some very familiar language - inflammation in the brain etc.

I hope it is of interest to those with a more scientific bent e.g. OddDuck.


PS Given all her contributions, shouldn't we be paying OddDuck?

Drug may offer relief from Crohn's disease

From Associated Press - November 15, 2004

An experimental drug that selectively tamps down part of the immune system can offer dramatic relief to many victims of the painful bowel disorder Crohn's disease, and might also work against illnesses such as arthritis and multiple sclerosis, researchers have found.

Other drugs are already available against Crohn's, but their effectiveness is spotty. ...

Copied this from the Antibiotics forum in case someone who might be interested misses it!
For anyone in the US who is of a mind to try treating their MS an an infection, a Stanford trained rheumatologist in Sacramento is willing to treat you, if you can make the trip to Sacramento and are willing to sign an informed consent form. He needs to see you at first, for obvious reasons, but thereafter can continue ...
