It’s officially over! Prof G and Dr Ruth, paired-up this afternoon for a socially-distanced 5-km walk around Brockwell Park in South London.

I would like to say thank you, thank you and thank you for your kind donations towards the Barts-MS coronavirus antibody study. With gift aid, we have now passed the £10,000 milestone and will be able to start the first phase of the study. This is great news.

#MSCOVID19: Fundraising

Two months ago we floated the concept of doing a UK-wide seroprevalence study in UK residents with MS to see how many had seroconverted to become anti-SARS-CoV-2 antibody positive and to see if there are differences in seroconversion rates between people on different DMTs.  The motivation was based on a prediction that people with MS on ocrelizumab would have lower titres of anti-SARS-CoV-2...

I need to explain my reasons for doing it; the main one being is that I am very frustrated that change happens so slowly, whereas shit happens so quickly. The catalyst for our Barts-MS off-label initiative was my sabbatical 5 years ago and kicked-off with a blog post I did on the 3rd October 2014. I am ashamed that it is now 5 years...

HSCT and fake news

I post to manage expectations and counteract fake news.  There is a group of pro-HSCTers going around and saying HSCT is a cure for MS even in MSers with more advanced disease, i.e. it halts and reverses their disability. This is simply not correct and we have no published, peer-reviewed, data to support their position.  The meta-analysis below from Paulo Muraro and colleagues clearly...
