    I love the fact that both the Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines use mRNA technology and they seem to be working just fine. The so-called "MS vaccine" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ML700hPtJmI) uses mRNA ideas and has shown to stop an MS-like disease in mice. If that can be done in humans -- a big if -- it would mean no more progression/worsening of the disease. On the thread's topic, fixing/repairing or re-myelinating damaged nerves, there exists a number of drugs which are in development to do re-myelinization -- cool stuff! The bad news is that those drugs are predicted to be 5+ years away before we'll see them. But some good news is that some are recruiting now (https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/resul...iple+Sclerosis). When/if we get those re-myelination drug we could see the disease evolve into a game of repairing nerves faster than they're being destroyed.
    Thank you for sharing the info, Golgotha. Very interesting, and hopeful.

    I see more hope than ever after the development of the vaccine.

    I try to remain optimistic that it will occur. I had read with mRNA, they do believe they can both prevent MS and reverse damage that has occurred. Will it be one and the same shot, who knows?

    ​​​If it becomes a true vaccine just like mumps/measles or a flu-like with booster, I think pharmaceuticals could be invented due to the mass distribution potential, where the DMTs are a very limited population of people. Just my thoughts...

    I am much more skeptical. Drug companies have more financial incentive to treat MS with drugs long term than to create a cure that will dry up their cash cow.

    Just my opinion. Sorry for the downer.

    Yes. I see more hope than ever after the development of the vaccine.

    I still admire your insistence in focusing our resources toward a substantial cure instead these disease modifying drugs that line the pockets of the pharmaceutical companies.
    After the speed in which a Covid vaccine was developed, I’m sure with the same focus MS could be conquered. The technology that was used in the vaccine could be expanded to cure many diseases.

    We just need to incentivize the public and raise funds. A cure has never seemed more possible right now.

    When will we see nerve repair and regeneration ?

    I have been reading about this subject for a loooong time ! Is there any interest in making this happen, for real, before the next century ?
