It is a great link, scorpion. If on one hand, there is a drug that is already in use and with known and managable side effects and on the other hand, there is a dreadful, eventuall fatal disease like MS, why they can not use the drug on those patients who agrees on such treatment?

Great link, thanks. On the one hand great news, on the other the lack of sense of urgency, "If approved, Miller said a pilot study could begin within the next year or so", is startling. "Therapeutic end point..." :?:
