We really don't know what is going on with all of this. This is a group of MANY Neuros. There is always that possibility that some sort of study is about to happen. Who knows. As far as relapsing, Devic's, like MS has a relapsing and non relapsing form. Gary is relapsing. Some DR call it "a more severe form of MS" Don't know how that will play in the Tysabri saga. Most of the USA Drs call it MS. It just happens to be a disease that they know what is causing the trouble. Like regular MS, "we think this, we think that", Devic's is known to be coming from the B cells. Yes I know about the Tysabri T cell involvement. Really, I don't think they know much more than us sometimes. And sometimes, I think we know MORE! The nurse is suppose to call "a contact" she has with the TOUCH program to see what is up. We should know something today or tomorrow of whether Gary gets it or not!
