Given all this, if given the chance to re-enter the trial for this drug, I would in a heartbeat! WHY? Because of all the MS disease-modifying drugs I have tried, this is the ONLY one that has slowed down the rate of exacerbations I don't blame you, my wife would too. I know you are aware of exactly...

This is getting to be tedious arguing/discussing information that we don't have and probably never will have! However, here's my opinion based on information I do have -- My clinical trial site was 450 miles ONE WAY and i was never reimbursed for anything during the entire time I was in the trial. A...

They did get FDA approval for the Phase III trial. It was published the other day. I am not following your logical ... why would we have to get new MRIs? We've already been diagnosed. We are a known quantity. We have been through the Phase IIb trial. And if we didn't go on any other tx since the shu...

Any idea what the entry will be for us "waiting" in the wings former Tovaxin Lab Rats will be for this next phase? I'm terribly interested but I don't have any idea and last I talked to Tim it didn't seem that he had any inside info. All we can do is guess...with it in mind that Opexa has kind of a...

I see that Opexa has been approved to start Phase III in January by the FDA. When the Phase IIB open label phase was shut down, I was in the process of being tested for MRTCs and they couldn't find any to continue me onto that phase. I've seen my neuro on a regular basis since the shut down, have ha...

I am glad you got a response from Opexa Jane! I tried to get information from the clinical trial site and oh gee, got nothing! Is that a surprise? Oh not! Considering I didn't even get an exit letter from them! I have been on a roller coaster ever since my exit from the trial in 2009 and am now on m...

I haven't heard squat from the trial coordinator even after sending the news releases etc. . The trial part of Campath is still active but is closed for recruiting. Given that, if I were you I would certainly explore the idea of getting Campath "off label." Mike I am not eligible. I checked. I had ...

I haven't heard squat from the trial coordinator even after sending the news releases etc. I have had 4 relapses since November and MRI shows 2 new lesions. My neuro wants me on something...I am balking -- holding out that Tovaxin will be back as a trial. I wish SOMEONE FROM OPEXA would tell us some...

Article today says that Opexa plans to continue on with Tovaxin clinical trials! I am also happy that I didn't go on any other therapy! There is hope yet! Woohoo!

I wonder what the plan is!

I have been ok since being released from the Phase IIb trial. I have had 3 relapses all treated with IVSM. I had an MRI last January that showed 1 new lesion in my brain. After much discussion with my neuro, and some research and thinking on my own, I decided that I would stay off any therapy. Like ...
