Sharon recently mentioned that the AAN meeting abstracts are available for viewing online, but there is an embargo on them until the day they are presented. There are several abstracts reporting clinical trial results or preliminary results, a few that caught my eye are:

-- Minocycline + Copaxone (finally!)
-- Rituxan for RRMS
-- Atorvastatin (Lipitor) + Rebif (finally!)
-- Campath

I can't find the abstract for the combo of Lipitor and Rebif. Do you remember under which topic it was listed? thanks Carole

Thanks Dignan, I got it. A bit disappointing, I must admit. Carole

not from any scientific standpoint, but i think the rebif was blocking the statins in my case. Just a single persons experience.

That came to my mind as well. Carole
