    Why have many died on MS drugs thats been promoted and where is the data ect of whats really been going on for decades where many are no longer with us after taking MS drugs ?

  2. Laura KolaczkowskiLaura says:

    We know more about the window of opportunity for treatment in RRMS -what does the window of treatment opportunity for PPMS look like ? How far into disability might someone with ppms b on the EDSS and still benefit from a DMT.?

  3. Michael Springer says:

    I was diagnosed with RRMS in 2001. The medications and IVIG I received over the years have allowed me to regain more of my abilities and capacities than I could have hoped for. But, it seems as though the pharmaceutical industry is stuck on DMMs. When will we begin to see more information about the research being done to treat MS and demylination with stem cell therapies?

  4. Ed says:

    I have been diagnosed with either PPMS or SPMS. I’m considering switching from Aubagio to Rituxin. My questions:

    1.) If I am treated with Rituxin now would it make sense to also be treated with Ocrelizumab later when it clears FDA approval?

    2.) If not, any general projection when Ocrelizumab may be approved?

    3.) What are the side effects of Ocrelizumab?

    Thank you.

    • Cristian says:

      I’d like to ask about Ocrelizumab. What are the severe adverse effects observed in the latest (OPERA I and II) trials? Are they following up with any of the participants of those trials to evaluate the treatment’s longer-term results? And also, will Roche/Genentech submit it for review in Europe too, next year? Thank you 🙂 .
