Track Drug Company Payments

The Washington Post had a "Wonkblog" today entitled: You can now track the billions that drug companies pay doctors and hospitals
..the federal government has compiled a massive database of how much drug and device companies spend on consulting fees, research grants, travel, free lunches and other items worth more than $10.

In just the last five months of 2013, the data show that 4.4 million such payments worth a combined $3.5 billion were made ...

Study shows MS patients benefit from exercise

A new study has found that people with multiple sclerosis may reduce perceived fatigue and increase mobility through a series of combined strength training and fitness exercises.

The research from the Miguel Hernández University of Elche, supervised by Professor Raúl Reina, aimed to analyze the effects of strength training on the fatigue that MS patients suffer. A total of 19 participants (5 men and 14 women) were split into two groups. Most took part in ...

CCSVI and cancer

Seems to uneducated me:
One of the known features of CCSVI (not saying anything about "MS") is the presence of many collateral veins. The reason for these, as discovered in studies concerning flow rates in collateral and jugular veins, is likely to be the presence of a stenosis, with resulting hypoxia, and the generation of replacement venous capacity to replace what was lost to the stenosis.

I have my own opinion that the collateral ...

"MS" is the n-word of the medical world.

A poor start on research, a fascination with replicating Zamboni's work on ultrasound, and a general, out of proportion, negativity to the concepts regarding the role of ccsvi as a cause of MS rather than as a method of symptom relief have distracted from good research partnerships.

"MS" is the n-word of the medical world.

I hope I will be forgiven my negativity, whether it is out-of-proportion or not. I have some deep connection ...

Tecfidera versus aubagio

In brief, I was diagnosed with ms more than 20 years ago. Based on the treatments available then, I chose to wait as the disease was mostly a symptomatic. Now in my late 40's it has come back with a vengeance. MRI shows multiple lesions and I'm having multiple episodes especially with weakness in my left leg. My neurologist wants me to start medication now and my options are tecfidera or aubagio. I'm leaning towards ...

New research on CSF, 3rd ventricle, coagulation in CCSVI

New research breakdown for September 2014--from my blog:

It's been a busy month for MS research. I wanted to give a brief overview of the new publications coming out in vascular journals, linking CCSVI and MS to slowed cerebral blood flow, changes in cerebrospinal fluid flow and coagulation factors.

As much as neurologists and immunologists continue to claim this exploration is dead, finito, over---there are still dozens of publications in press or being published which ...
