Quotes

...I just wanted to keep Elsa active and stimulated after her stroke so this was a way for us to do something together," Dann told Global News. "And my hope was to maybe inspire some people that have gone through a similar situation as Elsa to never give up and hang in there."
"I often use rheumatoid arthritis as an analogy when discussing NEDA. When rheumatologists adopted their treat-2-target algorithm they did not have the necessary class 1 evidence that is required by healthcare payers today. They simply based their treatment strategy on the scientific principle that ongoing inflammation in joints could not be good for the joints in the long-term, hence it better to suppress this inflammation early and as effectively as possible. This strategy has led to stunning results with the amount of end-organ joint damage dropping precipitously. The number of joint replacements required in RAers treated-2-target of NEDA is now very low. What we are trying to do is copy the rheumatologists. Ongoing inflammation in the brain and spinal cord of MSers cannot be good in the long-term. By suppressing inflammation as early and effectively as possible in MS we should reduce end-organ damage and delay, or hopefully prevent, MSers becoming disabled. Some neurologists may disagree with this position, but that is fine. You need to ask yourself are you happy with their position on this? In the UK, and Europe, adopting T2T-NEDA strategy is complicated by the fact that regulators and payer restrict access to the more efficacious agents, by making them second or third line. In countries were there are no prescribing restrictions the adoption of treat-2-target of NEDA is very well established, for example in Australia and the USA. What you need to find out is your neurologist's reluctance to adopt the treat-2-target of NEDA paradigm is because they don't accept the strategy or is because they are hand-cuffed by local, regional or national prescribing guidelines? It these guidelines that has resulted in UK MSologists getting  together and proposing to do the NEDA trial. By doing this trial we hope to produce class 1 evidence in a randomised controlled trial to show that treating-2-target of NEDA with zero tolerance for inflammatory disease activity results in better outcomes for MSers. I have already mentioned to you that when I presented this concept to Australian neurologists they thought this trial was unethical in asked what neurologist would allow half their patients not to be treated to target? This is why I have hypothesised that when MSBase has enough data it will clearly show Australian MSers doing better than MSers living in European countries in which we are unable to treat-2-target of NEDA."
...thought he might have had polio, or a viral disease affecting his nervous system, Jezdimir said in an interview with the Kalamazoo Gazette Friday. "It wasn’t diagnosed totally until I moved to Kalamazoo,” he said, where Eric Born, DO, at Parchment Family Practice finally properly identified the disease in 1982."
...He said, "I had a lot of matters with him rights since 1972 on the same side and also as opponents. In fact last Tuesday he was on his legs in court where I was opposing him. He was representing an accused in a quashing plea."
