Vitamin D and MS: trial activity

"Let's hope something positive comes from all this activity."

  1. Wow, what an active field. MS is so frustratingly complex in its pathology that vit D deficiency will only explain part of the problem.

    We hear so much about the tings that are going on in labs yet there's so little to show for it.

  2. I think vit D and Omega 3 are both important anyway and make you feel as if you are doing something to help yourself- although not helped by programmes like the food hospital last night that said you don't need expensive supplements if you are having a healthy diet- and exrtrapolated that conclusion on the basis of vit C consumption.

  3. How do you get onto one of these trials if you are interested? Particularly the Cohort Study into CIS and early MS which seems to be based in Berlin??

    You have to live in the country where the trial is recruiting; this is for ethical reasons. If you live in the UK you may be pleased to hear that there is a lobby underway to start our own trial. Prof. John Zajicek in Plymouth is leading on it.
