This isn't specific to Opexa's MS vaccine trial, but it's good to see that they're getting positive results with their other studies.

Loobie's 3rd update

Ok,

I'm ready to update again. I have really waited this time since I was pinging off of on so many false alarms. I have used the 4 day rule suggested by Tim (it's good advice when self monitoring) and have lots to talk about.

The amount of changes are huge to me. I'm either seeing some results or I have the biggest placebo effect ever encountered. As some of you know from my previous ...

https://dare.ubvu.vu.nl/bitstream/1871/9249/1/Breij_dissertation.pdf

The title looks very interesting for people interested in Tovaxin. It also seemed generally applicable, so I also posted it under "General Discussion".

Loobie's second shot update

Hello all,

I still haven't the foggiest if this is real or placebo effect. However, I have a small update that I'm trying not to get too excited about. Although I have RRMS, everything about my progression has been a bit odd. Allow me to explain:

My first symptom was ON. It was (and is) not typical. My eyesight would only get bad when I exerted myself or got heated (it doesn't take much heat). ...

Injection site reaction to Tovaxin

I have read numerous posts about looking forward to seeing an injection site reaction, and this may act as a reverse placebo effect. If a patient does not see an injection site reaction, they may believe ...

Anyone - T-Cell Vaccination (Sheba Medical Center) trial?

We have seen that we have quite a few people here that are in the Phase IIb Tovaxin Trial, but I haven't read of anyone who is in the Phase III "T-Cell Vaccination (Sheba Medical Center)".

I would expect that the Phase III trial would be bigger, and therefore there would be more of us in it. Anyone?

Only T-Cells?

I remember reading that some treatments that have shown promise, actually work on the B-Cells. Now, I dont understand all the medicall stuff behind the immune system, but from what I have read, they should also be able to identify B-Cells that are involved in this disease?

Could they not make a "vaccine" that targetted both T-Cells & B-Cells? wouldn't we expect this to be a more complete treatment? or have they tried doing both ...
