I do remember a month, maybe a few months ago someone mentioning that they'd been treated and that no Cyclophosphamide was used.....actually I think someone supplied an article because I read first hand what the procedure was and it DIDN'T involve Cyclophosphamide.
Actually Cyclophosphamide was developed in 1957 and mid 60's started being used against leukemia in which the bone marrow definitely is the source of the problem so High dose cyclophosphamide was used to kill the immune system and other chemicals were used to kill the bone marrow.
When people bitch that I'm interested in dangerous MS procedures (HiCy/Campath) the truth is that my interest is in the practice of rebooting itself and not actually the practice of killing MS with a hand grenade. The point is that with time and practice we will see improvement after improvement (possibly the chemicals for Halt-MS and BEAM are improvements over cyclophosphamide) until something so specific that will ONLY eliminate the factors responsible for MS and literally wouldn't be invasive or dangerous at all.
Please keep us up to date on how you are doing and I'll spend some time familiarizing myself with BEAM.
