Q: Thanks for taking time to update us all on your progress with the ms vaccine. Do you know if they let SPMS'ers in the study and if so did they see the same results that you saw?
A: There are people with SPMS in my study. The phase IIb study starting early in 2006 will be limited to RRMS, but there will be other studies that are designed for SPMS and probably PPMS. Since the data reported at the International MS Meeting showed a 92% reduction in attacks and an improvement in disability, I assume this indicates that it works for SPMS.
April 2006 You have probably realized from the last few entries that Tim is doing fine, and we don't have anything to report. We are going to stop adding anything to Tim's timeline. There are many people who are now enrolled in the Tovaxin study. It is their turn to tell us their stories. Some will have great success like Tim and post up the good news. Others may not fare as well. They may be in the placebo group, but we will never know. We hope the vast majority will stop having attacks and regain some of their lost function. We assume that we will probably never hear their stories. We will close Tim's timeline with a quote by Tiny Tim from A Christmas Carol. Our Dad uses this quote to end the annual Christmas letter every year.
And Tiny Tim adds a wiser corollary to his father's toast, God bless us every one!
If you get a chance to take a look at your site....the last few pictures seemed they should be labeled 2007 instead of 2006.
Yes you've made it pretty obvious, which I've found a little surprising. If I do say so myself, thisisms is gaining kind of a cult following due to all the hot babes that hang around here, and with you being an eligible bachelor and all......IHaveMS-com wrote:You know I hate to post.

Smilingface, I wasn't comfortable with that CD-4 and CD-8 thing and in reading Tim's comment a little closer I notice that he isn't specifically stating that the amount of CD-4 or CD-8 cells is a determining factor to differentiate spms from rrms, although that is the way I too originally read it.IHaveMS-com wrote: I have the diagnosis of RRMS, but it was thought that I had possibly transitioned into SPMS almost immediately. I had several attacks in rapid succession with no apparent remission. My blood profile is mainly CD-4 WBCs but I did have some CD-8 WBCs.
