A board to discuss Revimmune as a potential therapy for multiple sclerosis

Postby Lars » Sun Jan 06, 2008 11:18 am

Hi All,
I thought maybe it was about time to chime in here. Is this an already approved therapy or is it still in trial? If it is available what are the wheres, whats, hows, etc.
Thanks,
Lars

Thanks Guys,
Is there any public data available for the current usage? If that is already posted somewhere, apologies but I have found that my ability to review all old posts is limited by my.........brain. Good luck with this Chris, I think we will all be curiously watching.
Bets Wishes,

Bob,
Yes, I suppose that is one question but the bigger one is its success for those treated.

If I remember correctly, I read where 175 people had been treated with HDC with success (before Revimmune). Remember, this treatment was used at Stonybrook to treat MS patients before Accentia bought the license and started this trial. Dr. Gladstone, an oncologist, was treating MS patients at Stonybrook. He had previously worked at John Hopkins (before Stonybrook) and now he is at another New York hospital. Didn't Chris say that he had contacted Dr. Gladstone and he is no longer permitted to use the treatment on MS since Accentia bought the license and is conducting this trial.

Hey All,
I am a touch confused (doesn't take much), If I am understanding this correctly, Johns Hopkins will treat anyone but both Maggie Mae and Chris mention "clinical trials". Is Johns Hopkins viewing their treatment as a trial or are there trials elsewhere?
Confused and Snowbound,

Chris,
I felt compelled to get more info so I called Carrie today. If the treatment is as together as she is, you scored. Have a safe trip and let us know how you are, when you can. Thanks for all your help.
