My doc says that to him "there is no doubt that this vaccine is effective" (for everybody but Lars, the 1%er). I will be shocked if it is not bought for a song by a large pharma and goes to Phase III. When that happens, who knows? But I expect it at some point. I will not die holding my breath for t...

Maybe you could use the MRI as evidence in a lawsuit. That would be a reason not to give you copies of it. I'll bet a subpoena would get them though.
Stray late night thought.

Wow. All I can say is I need time to process all this, and mostly I am VERY shocked and sorry! That sucks. [/size] Since they paid for the MRIs, I guess it's not out of the question that they would own those. Not sure what a copy would cost though. Seems like if we paid for the dupe, what harm would...

Hi gang. It's been a while and I really should be in bed, so I'll be short and to the point...for the very first time in my life. Saw my doc a few weeks ago. Said that I wasn't eligible for most trials as I'd been on Tovaxin AND I haven't had a relapse in the last year. At that time, Campath was out...

I'd be happy if somebody could just get me a key to the lab so I could liberate my own vaccine. It's not like anybody else can do anything with it! :x

Jane- Tovaxin was my first MS treatment and I haven't had a shot since last December sometime. I've waited nearly a year. I'm going to explore other avenues with my doc in 2 weeks and then evaluate what's out there. I can't say that I wouldn't wait, but I also don't know what the other options are f...

My last word on the subject; There is a valid reason that many choose the natural path in all this. One only has to turn on the TV for 30 seconds to see Pharmas hocking crap we don't need or understand. This is a business about dollars not cures. I think my avoidance of the Crab regime has as much ...

In the business world, if you say you might be going out of business, it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. Same reason people won't buy cars from a bankrupt automaker. So if Opexa thought they had a shot at getting financing, then saying that they might go out of business would kill any hope. Who ...

The people in the IIb trial are now in a one year extension study. I assume it will be renewed after that as long as the company has money. As for me, my study is being closed out at the end of the year.... I have come out of retirement only to say goodbye and wish everyone the best in the extensio...

Hi All. Because work has been so all-consuming over the last few months, and my energy and time have been at a premium, I've been largely absent from my normal haunts, both virtual and non-virtual. I have been reading occasionally over the past few weeks, thanks to HEC hipping me to the death of our...

Could you tell by the third eye in the middle of the forehead or was it the telltale smell of lilacs that we all give off?

Hey Bob.
thanks! I wish the best for both of you as well. I'm so delayed that maybe we'll get on the same schedule. I'll be only 1 week away from 6 months from my entrance exam and having to get another MRI. So I really, REALLY hope we get it done that week.
Plz let us know when you get The Call.

Getting my first shot 12/19.

Would have been 11/28 but of course everybody's closed.
Would have been 12/5 but doctor's office is booked.
Could have been 12/12 but I'll be out of town.
So 12/19 it is. A long wait. Another month to play Russian roulette with a loaded gun.
