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

    You can read all about new therapies and drug trials either on the National Multiple Sclerosis Society web site (NMSS.ORG) or just google new therapies for multiple sclerosis. A ton of them will come up. I also recommend going to the website on ldn (Low Dose Naltrexone which is LDN.ORG) There have been numerous conferences on this drug at the National Institute of Health. Check it out. This drug gave me my life back.
