National MS Society Invests in Clinical Development of Human Antibody for Progressive forms of MS

Another great article found in multiple sclerosis news today by Patricia Inacio, PHD.

Fast Forward, a nonprofit subsidiary of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, will invest up to $330,000 to advance the clinical development of an antibody that was shown to lessen inflammation and nerve cell damage in a multiple sclerosis (MS) mouse model.

The funding will help develop the antibody (a protein the immune system uses to neutralize pathogens such as bacteria and viruses) in order to have properties more similar to those found in humans (a humanized antibody), and to test its therapeutic potential in people with MS.

  1. I was reading an article today regarding Cognitive research that Patricia Inacio PhD published. I have had MS 20yrs now and at 35 I became fully disabled with cognitive decline. I would be interested in corresponding with Patricia Inacio PhD regarding her research. I have disagreed in many ways over the years how people are tested for cognitive related issues. At age 40 it’s taken me years to teach myself how to deal with cognition issues, yet it is almost impossible for most to understand how it affects you (example: today I took over an hour to complete a detailed grocery list to see if it helped me while shopping but unfortunately I still spent over 3 hours shopping and that’s just for groceries).

    1. I was that multiple sclerosis Wasn’t so different across-the-board. It makes it difficult for help to be given where it needs to be for an individual person because they focus more on the big picture issues then on things that aren’t what they deem big picture. Cognitive is a big one as an example because it’s not one of the top MS symptoms that everyone has. I don’t suffer from cognitive but I have all the physical. I’m secondary progressive And there’s no help for me. Everything that’s really done is still mostly for relapsing remitting. There is very little out there for secondary that actually works. There’s even less support financially for the disabled with MS. It is all difficult. I’m sorry I wish I could help you.
