Collaboration to advance novel treatment for spasticity and pain in MS

Concert Pharmaceuticals has joined forces with New York-based Fast Forward, a subsidiary of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, to fund the pre-clinical advancement of a new drug developed by the company, C-21191, to treat spasticity and pain in people suffering from MS.

“This collaboration with Fast Forward enables us to accelerate development of C-21191 and will provide our team with valuable insight into the management of symptoms associated with multiple sclerosis,” said Roger Tung, president and CEO of Concert Pharmaceuticals. “It further validates our novel deuterated chemical entity platform as a highly efficient approach to creating innovative compounds like C-21191 by leveraging previous industry R&D (research and development) investment.”...Read More - http://www.msrc.co.uk/index.cfm/fuseact ... ageid/1743

Medical Cannabis reduces spasticity for me. CBD (Cannabidiol)) has a far more beneficial effect than THC.

Using plants instead of pills makes sense to me.

Nature's not always your friend. Tetrodotoxin from puffer fish is just one example. Calyculin, a toxin from a marine sponge that acts as a potent phophatase inhibitor and mutagen, is another. Then there's domoic acid from a phytoplankton that causes amnesic shellfish poisoning (lets not forget saxitoxin which causes paralytic shellfish poisoning) and so on...

lol! i would still go with nature for my poison needs. :D
take control of your own health
pursue optimal self care at least as actively as a diagnosis
ask for referrals to preventive health care specialists eg dietitians
don't let suboptimal self care muddy any underlying diagnostic picture!
