To emphasize the quote from the NINDS p...

Hi Robbie,
Is there something you could do like a work at home arrangement over the computer? If you can design such a functional lift for yourself, then you could likely design other useful things as well.

Re: Can the JC virus be killed before PML

The Rebif and Copaxone were not taken at the same tine but it was the sequence. I was taking Rebif and the injection site reaction was so bad my almost my entire body was a huge flaming sore so I was switched to Copaxone but the Solu-Medrol was administered between them. Thanks for the clarificatio...

According to my pharmacist it was my Solu-Medrol infusions interacting with my Rebif and Copaxone.
Thanks for letting me know. I'm sorry you went through that. I'm not familiar with combining Rebif with Copaxone. Was there a trial that showed that to be of benefit?

I ended up with Non Hodgkin's Lymphoma because of some previous MS treatments and I don't want to risk PML if there is any option to minimize that risk.
Thanks for sharing. Just curious, which treatment resulted in lymphoma?

As is always the case in studies like this, there were likely no Eskimos or Inuits included. I wonder why people who live at the most northern latitudes and have ZERO incidence of MS are never included in these type of studies! Oh well...

Beet root juice/powder

I've been using beet root root powder for the last month or so. It appears that there are desirable benefits for PwMS. Post here if you use beet root and let us know what your experience has been.
