Bring back Harry Z

Dear all,

Harry, I was just trying to wind you up. You know me well enough by now. I had no idea that your surname really began with Z.

Arron - sorry if this caused you any problems. I never ever though that the post would be taken seriously.

My latest survey shows that 97% want the ban on Harry Z to be lifted. Welcome back Harry Z.

Ban Harry Z

This is not my idea, but I have received a huge number of PMs asking me to raise this with Arron.

My recent survey of users of this site showed that of the 654 who voted, 86% want Harry Z banned from the thisisms site.

Harry is a menace. I have received a number of e-mails saying that Harry Z holds a substantial amount of stock in Teva, which accounts for his unrelenting attacks on ...

testing for PML

Hi -

I've been reading through all the newly shared data and opinions on Tysabri and I have a question that maybe someone can answer. Does anyone know how the testing for PML is done? One description I read said they are taking "serial measurements of JC viral load" and I'm wondering just how those measurements are obtained.

Thanks,
Arcee

Another Tysabri article

Dear all,

Another Tysabri article, but it raises issues that have been discussed before - what sort of patients are enrolled into trials. Of course, the drug makers would prefer those with mild disease / early disease, then they could show that the patients didn't progress / had minimal relapses or inflammatory activity. It's a bit like some of the selective schools in the UK who only take on the brightest kids and then get ...

Tysabri article

Attached is an article on Tysabri written by a UK consultant neurologist.

The focus of the article is about the risks with fast-tracking therapies.

The author correctly (in my view) points out that EAE is a pretty useless model of MS. He also highlights the need for neuro-protective agents.
