There’s been a lot of interest in the treatments (including natural treatments) for progressive MS that were presented at the ECTRIMS-ACTRIMS conference in Paris last week. Here are a few of our reports involving that research.
Here’s one of the treatments that’s reporting good results with progressive MS patients. I mean results that you can see on an EDSS score. It’s using a higher-than-usual dose of a type of vitamin B that’s usually used to help hair, nail, and skin care.
MD1003, a high-dose biotin developed by MedDay, slowed or prevented further disease progression among progressive multiple sclerosis (MS) patients in a Phase 3 clinical trial, researchers announced at the Oct. 25–28 7th Joint ECTRIMS-ACTRIMS Meeting in Paris, France.
The effects of the treatment were seen to be upheld over time and benefitted all patients in the trial similarly, offering hope to progressive MS patients that a new treatment for their condition may be on the horizon.
While Tysabri (natalizumab) failed to slow worsening disability in people with secondary progressive multiple sclerosis (SPMS) in a Phase 3 trial, researchers now suggest that the treatment did improve walking and arm function in people with advanced disability.

If you want to hold off progressing to SPMS, this study suggests you’re better off using one of the newer DMDs, in this case, Lemtrada or Tysabri. It supports the theory that hasn’t been widely tested that early inflammation drives progression to SPMS. And it suggests that it’s a good idea to hit RRMS with the “high performance” DMDs to slow the change from relapsing to progressive.
