    To call it "a cure" is a pretty bold statement. So bold, I've made it my avatar.

    Stopping the disease would be wonderful, but the damage already done has to be repaired to make normalcy return. Perhaps the body over time can repair the damage done, and if not, that will be the next line of research. First, we will have to see if the "cure" has been found.

    Howie, what you said is true, however for future generations of people with MS, when it is caught very quickly they probably really would not have any, or much damage at that point.

    Thanks for post BBS and Agate!

    Very true. Had I gotten this treatment that is a supposed "cure", I would have no damage. It was ON that made me see a doctor, and lead to a DX, and had it stopped then, I would have healed from the ON like I did, and lead a normal life.

    It was that second exacerbation that did major damage I have to this day. If this is indeed a cure, it will change so many lives. Then the emphasis will be on early detection, or even be given like your childhood vaccinations.

    It would be great if this indeed was a "cure", or at least a preventative thing. Too late for a lot of us, but for future generations, a very good thing.

    My neuro is cautiously optimistic. He has seen lots of "cures" come and go in the past 35 years.
