  • Thanks, really helpful, good investment for my Friday night.

    As a side note, it's Good to know that if MS patients are not immune to the laws of thermodynamics, and that if I eat less I will lose weight…Don't think I need the p values for that one.

  • Thanks for the updates NDG and MD.

    I keeping thinking of a short podcast or radio show (20 mins or longer) once a fortnight or monthly that Barts MS could add to this blog. With MS research news.

    I would tune in or listen on playback. It could be pre-recorded, not necessarily live and include guest speakers.

  • Yep, thanks MD and NDG, you make a great double act! Got a lot from watching ☺. First year of ectrims for me.
    Tried my best to follow the gently smouldering debate on twitter also. Would have loved to have heard Prof Hauser on B cells, although if his Taubman speech is anything to go by he was maybe too humble to take an aggressive debating stance. Great result that only 6 people in the room stuck with T cell dogma!
    Any poster feedback?

    • Thank you all for all of your support. I will be posting on some interesting posters I found at this years ECTRIMS on my Tue post (GMT).

  • Thank you both so much for taking the time and trouble to do this vid and making it so accessible. I found it beneficial, especially as you effectively picked one another up for definitions and explanations of medical terminology etc to facilitate your communication of information to a wide-ranging audience.
    Gotta add: you also provided me with a really enjoyable laugh as you handled the technical glitch😂

  • PLEASE comment on the study from UCSF Medical Centre:
    YouTube the interview with Bruce Cree about the 13 year study and the conclusions about long term disability = not relapses or new lesions, but BVL and spinal cord volume loss as major indicators of long-term disability.

    He states that NEDA over 2 years was not predictive of a better long-term prognosis.

    Bart's interpretation and assessment will be very welcome!
