Greetings from Europe and waiting for tovaxin to start there

Hi everybody and congratulations for this very interesting forum.

I'm french and my girlfriend was recently diagnosed with MS. (we're both 22) My whole world was crushed away in two weeks as many of our life projects were questioned because of MS.

I started searching the Internet all I could find about the disease, especially treatments, and I eventually heard about Tovaxin, which seems to me very promising. Unfortunately, we're french and there's no tovaxin ...

My Tovaxin Experience so far

Howdy all,

I have been watching what has been going on here at the Tovaxin forum with great interest but have remained silent on how things are going for me in the study. I received my third injection last Thursday so here is how things have gone for me.

I went in for my first treatment on March 23 and the whole deal was uneventful. As a side note, it was very important that the ...

T-Cell vaccines

I know its a tovaxin forum, and i know its had a higher published success rate, but why is it that there are so many people excited about a phase IIb treatment (Tovaxin) over a similar treatment (in my understanding of the theorys) already in Phase 3 ??

If / Once it gets to market, I am sure they will improve its effectiveness to close to that of ...

Last (booster) shot today!

Well I got my last injection today. It was uneventful as they all are. My coordinator told me that they had to color the placebo too as people were peeking and they are different colors. Hell for all I know that's just what they told me to make me not turn around. Now comes the six months of waiting to get into the extension. I get an MRI in four weeks and then some more ...

First injection of Tovaxin?/placebo

Hi again everybody. Well, my much delayed first injection happened yesterday. I was a bit discouraged at first since I saw absolutely no site reaction on either arm. But my wife comforted me with her words that "God knows what's best for you" which I know is true and that we just need to continue trusting in Him. My next injection is scheduled for the end of this month. I wish everyone better health, both ...

Tovaxin and Progessive MS?

Hi all,
Starting this trial path has made me wonder if anyone, in any stage of the trial has had or suspected they were in the "progressive ms" group. Were any of the initial phases open to progressive patients? What were the results etc.? I have long suspected I was in the progressive group. I have never had any remittance since my diagnosis (nearly 8 months), only slowly worsening symptoms. I have never been given ...

Possitve MRTC

Hi all,
Found out today that my mrtc was possitive. Apparently the Advair steriod in question made little or no difference. Maybe the bar has indeed been lowered. I have stopped Advair and swithed to Singular which seems to be working so far. I will schedule bag o' blood Monday.
