I am a snowflake yes I am. No two snow flakes are the same just as no two people’s MS is the same either.
Just a super thought I came away with tonight after hearing Dr Dunn speak at a presentation sponsored oh gasp by a drug company LOL.
We drove to Stockton and met our friend (another MS’r) at the motel where it was held. Usually these presentations are obvious drug pushing orientated this one was very tame in that dept.
Dr Dunn comes with strong credentials and spoke mostley about why it was so hard to find a cure for MS and what he felt worked and what did not. IE mice probably not much help when it comes to research – that humans will be where the cure is found – well I thought to myself DUH.
The most interesting part was some of the new research that will be going on a Stanford U. Their site is down right now so maybe I will link and explain it laters. But the research will be looking at human blood, as soon as it is ready to go I am there I will give em all they want and then some. Maybe the immune suppressing stuff just is not where it is at not that I am an expert or something but I have never logically felt that it was gonna be in the end – but guess ya never know. A new one for me to research: proteomic analysis.
Anyways, I like the snow flake analogy so there it is. Coolness of the good kind. Here in Sac we dont really get very many presentations that offer the opportunity to learn and ask questions of some of the nations top MS Dr.’s unless they are sponsored by the drug companies - yes they have the money to do so – I think that kind of sucks that drug companies akin to the evil empire are they ones who provide the opportunities around this area. The big society sure does not unless you head for the bay area. . …
Well that is it for now.
I am a snow flake tee hee
