RRMS Clinical Study of New Antibiotic Therapy Nearing End

http://multiplesclerosisnewstoday.com/2015/12/03/rrms-clinical-study-ne…

This is the company in Israel that has patented a 3 antibiotic drug combination to treat several disorders, including MS and Crohn's disease.  Study results are to be published in early 2016.

Of course the patented antibiotic combination is a secret formula (that they'll charge 10 times more for than separately). Nevertheless, the study is a plus overall.

I agree: anything is better than nothing but I don't really like the secrecy of it all..........................Sarah

Yep.

They may charge more than 10x!  But the information will get out there more widely that ABX can help. 

Thank you for writing!

So, yes you can find out what is in the mixture, but it doesn't sound very appealing.  Rifabutin is one thing: many people will get put off with just that, Loriyas had no problem with rifampicin, a related antibiotic but many people do, as David found out.  Clofazimine is completely offputting though.  Look the side-effects up in Wikipedia:  apart from the skin discolouration which has led some people to severe depression and two to suicide, half the patients develop bowel intolerance, which can lead to internal bleeding and/or bowel obstructions which need surgery or may result in death.

At first sight, it seems good that someone is trying antibiotics for multiple sclerosis, but there are kinder ways to do it..........................Sarah

True, Sarah, but they are probably trying to find a cocktail they can patent and make money from, since Sriram and Stratton published their patent for the world to use freely, with no possibility of profit.

Yes, I guess they are attempting to make money but there must surely be better ways to make money than risk killing people with something in the cocktail..........Sarah
