Default Oh Canada! Similar trial up north seeing successes

There is a similar clinical trial to HALT-MS taking place in Canada (the chemotherapy is a bit different, but the general premise is the same) and the results have been quite promising so far. The trial started in 2000.

On of the biggest success stories is Jennifer Molson, who went from being pretty disabled to playing stick hockey with her kids.

Her story is here:

Video coverage is here (with surprising before and after). It also talks about the risks, a death in the study, and more:

And an interview with one of the study chiefs:

There is certainly reason for optimism, especially if this can be made safer and customized to the aggressiveness of the disease....
