  1. In the video which was dated December 2012, Nan Luke said that she was going to begin taking oral medication for MS. I am interested in her medication and an update on her condition.

  2. I am taking Tecfidera and doing well. Enjoying NO needles! The side effects were mild and temporary 1-2 months. Flushing was helped by taking an aspirin and taking the medicine on a full stomach remedied the mild nausea. Feel like I’ve been given 1/2 to 1 extra day each week- no more flu-like symptoms from the interferon therapy. Will see my neurologist shortly and discuss recent MRI.

    • Dear Carmen, thanks for the comment and I am so sorry to hear about your son. We are funding a lot of research targeting autism but nothing that is yet ready to be tested in people in a clinical trial. I’m sorry I cannot be of more help but wish you and your son all the very best

  3. Hello,

    Looking through the different clinical trials and research areas, I didn’t see anything related to oral health, dentin regeneration, etc. Did I miss something or is that not of interest to CIRM & the alpha clinics? Seems there’s been a lot of talk, speculation, and research in this area elsewhere ant that stem cell therapy has a lot of potential with regards to our teeth.

    Kind Regards,

    • Hi Omar, yes there is a lot of interest in this area but nothing that has yet progressed far enough to be tested in a clinical trial I’m afraid.

    • You have to find a clinical trial that is appropriate for you Dakota. We’re a state agency so we fund research but don’t offer any therapies. Try the http://www.clinicaltrials.gov website and see if there’s a clinical trial there that seems appropriate for you.
