Short survey for my school leaving examination work :)

Dear MS-Patient,

Twelve years ago my mother came down with MS. The nescience about this theme has really employed me. That’s why I decided to make my work for general qualification for university entrance about this interesting issue.
I’m conscious of not-being the first guy who wants to do this and I’m also not the last one. However I would be really thankful if you would take just five or ten minutes to answer to my questions.
My work I specialize in the medicaments Tysabri and Gilenya. I’ll compare them in matters of clinic, social and society changement. That’s why this survey is now in this forum.

For answer my questions, I’d like to send you my finished work, if you like to get it. But you have to wait some months, because I’ll finish it in January 2014 (until then you can make the survey).

I’ll thank you in advenge for your help and I’wish you much power fort he future ☺

All your information I’ll use anonym and if you don’t want to answer the questions in the forum, you can send me the questions to the following e-mail adress

Best wishes Jeremy Wyler
