  1. God bless the people at Biogen-Idec. So there are so few people working in MS that seem to give a hoot, but these guys actually want to help. The new anti receptor-6 (DR6) treatment sounds grand, though I hate the timelines involved.

  2. I find it more useful when you do the 'sifting' and interpretation and post fewer items, but with your comments. Sorry to be a bit of a stick in the mud and not move with the times…

  3. Message received. This was an additional feature and a one off trial. I will continue to do the sifting; I assume everyone knows how do use Google Alerts and can set-up a daily alert for themselves? If not let me know.

  4. No, I don't know tho' I'm sure I could figure it out. However, it would save time and effort if you 'blogged' some instructions… 🙂

  5. I already have such an alert. It returns a lot of useful information and also a lot of not-so-useful news about fund-raisers, MS walks, obituaries, … To the previous Anonymous: 1. Go to Google News search for "Multiple Sclerosis"3. Go to the bottom of the result page and click on "Create an email alert for multiple sclerosis"
