New Blood Test Predicts Who Will Benefit From Interferons

A simple blood test is now available to predict who will and who will not benefit by using Interferons. No more guess work. No more trying to figure out will it work for me, which one will work, is it working or not.

Ask your neurologist about this.

The underlines are mine. It's pretty extraordinary that the test is currently available but "more study is needed" Ask your doctor now.

This is from Bloomberg.com. I'll ...

Disposing of Needles

I currently have a year's worth of used needles stored in a plastic Folger's coffee canister (a perfect container, btw). I remember the MS Lifelines nurse telling me that they cannot go into the garbage so what should I do with them?

Increased relapse stopping Rebif?

Hi all,
Still considering what the heck to do about my new disease :)

It seems I ran across an article when I first started researching options that cited an increase in the number & severity of relapses once a patient had to stop rebif. (due to side effects, antibodies etc)

Has anyone seen data to support/deny this? I'd love a link if you have info.
I'm ...

Hello everyone,
I am new to this dx & site. I'm a 40yr mom to 2 preschool boys. Went in to have my appendix out 3 weeks ago- came out with the MS diagnosis a few days ago after a HORRIBLE hospital stay.

Rebif after Avonex

I have RRMS, and switched to Rebif about 14 months ago after being on Avonex since 2002. I was fairly stable on Avonex with some mild baseline symptoms, but my neuro recommended I switch to Rebif when I had said I noticed that some old symptoms left and some new symptoms appeared.

In the time that I switched to Rebif, it seems like fatigue, leg weakness, and spasticity have become more frequent. This of course ...
