The funny part is, I can't seem to find the study online. Hmmm. I'm not saying the pharmaceutical companies are biased or capable of deception (he-hem, you may detect a note of sarcasm), but is it possible that the study was funded and published by the makers of Copaxone? Now don't get me wrong! I am grateful that the drug companies have created all these MS drugs and I am NOT someone who thinks they are JUST about the money. I know that there are researchers in labs who want to find new treatments and even a cure for MS. I just think, with the kind of money the drug business generates, there's always room for ethically-questionable alliances if not outright dishonesty and corruption.
But I digress.
Searching online today, I found a number of studies that are somewhat promising.
- This one is specifically about Uhtoff's sign, which I have lots of problems with this particular symptom. They had a good description of what happens to my eyes when I get hot, tired, or have too much to look at (like in a store).
- A new British clinical trial just started that hopes to find a way to regulate the wonky immune systems of people with MS.
- I love the idea of an MS Vaccine which some researchers are exploring. I look forward to the day when MS becomes a disease like Polio that is rare and historic.
