Has Anyone Heard of Any New Therapies or Treatments for Multiple Sclerosis?

Question by d_eic: Has anyone heard of any new therapies or treatments for Multiple Sclerosis?

Best answer:

Answer by Suzi
I have had RRMS for 6 years now, and the only thing that is really promising news is a treatment that is being developed by Oregon State Sciences Hospital in Portland, Oregon. This drug is in the testing stage. News is; that it is eliminating symptoms of MS. The drug is called RTL 1000. The very first participant received treatment last fall. It has been on the news here, but I live in Oregon. The study is taking place not only in Oregon but other university hospitals as well. Look this one up. I called them & signed up for the study & expect to hear from them in the spring.www.ohsu/edu
