I wanted to post a quote from Gavin Giovannoni, who is a professor of neurology at Barts.
“If we take the approach of rheumatologists who treat aggressively and early, then in 15 years we could see wheelchairs as very rare,” he says. “But we have to act now.”
This is from the Times supplement on MS on Monday. I saw it mentioned on here but didn’t actually buy it, a friend posted it through my door. I thought it would be full of the same old stuff that I already know but actually I thought it was really interesting. There was lots of stuff in it about the newest treatments, the trials on drugs for SPMS and the postcode lottery for getting treatment at all. It said stuff that I really believe about getting the best drugs as early as possible. I’m going to post the list of top neurologists who are quoted in the supplement so people will know who they should be getting their GP to refer them to.
