So in canada a MS pill for multiple sclerosis has been approved rather quickly, remember the new controversial MS treatment battle in canada? funny how that been treated with hostility towards it, yet the MS pill for MS

Why is the media saying the new treatment is Controversial? Is it because It isn't a Pill?

MS Drug Apporved

"It's nice to have this option," said Dr. Heather MacLean, a neurologist at the Ottawa Hospital who specializes in MS.

Gilenya, also called fingolimod, is a capsule taken once a day for people with the relapsing-remitting form of MS. These patients have relapses that continue to worsen in severity, disability level, or who are unable to tolerate injections.

Honestly, this is getting us nowhere we are almost living in the future modern century yet medicine and TPTB is only giving people who suffer from medical conditions drugs? that are unproven to work at all?

What do you ATS think of this MS Drug, how long until before law suits happen.

A doctor at Irvine University found that Sea anemone ,and scorpion venom eliminated all symptoms
of MS in experimental animals that had a form of MS.
Activated autoreactive TEM cells probably contribute to MS by migrating to inflamed tissues where they secrete interferon γ and tumor necrosis factor α. In keeping with this idea, adoptive transfer of Kv1.3high rat memory T cells into naïve recipients Selective targeting of these disease-causing cells with Kv1.3 channel blockers prevents and reverses EAE in this rat model , and no side-effects are observed despite the expression of Kv1.3 channels in the brain, arteries , bladder and epithelia . Together, these findings lead to the prediction that Kv1.3 channel blockers will ameliorate symptoms of MS and other autoimmune disorders mediated by TEM cells in humans.

I believe the discovery of this cure for MS goes back to 2003 so it appears to be a conspiracy to keep this
safe treatment off the market.
