MS Action Alert- Help Secure $15 Million for MS Research

Last year, MS activists reached a new milestone and helped secure $5 million for MS research in FY 2009 under the Congressionally Directed Medical Research Programs (CDMRP). The CDMRP is a Department of Defense (DoD) program that is funded annual via the Defense Appropriations Act.

Let's take the next step together and help secure more funding for MS research under the CDMRP. Ask your members of Congress to support a $15 million appropriation under the CDMRP that will help scientists to better understand the causes of MS and help find a cure. The large number of grant proposals recently submitted to the DoD for MS projects indicate that there is a clear need for more funding for MS research.

Take Action Now!
  • Call your legislators' Washington, D.C. office to talk about this issue. Call the Capitol switchboard at 1-800-828-0498 to be connected.
  • Click here to follow up with a quick e-mail to your Senators and Representative.
Now is the perfect time to reinforce the message that MS activists took to Capitol Hill during the Public Policy Conference last week.

Groung Breaking Information

Neil Scolding, professor of clinical neurosciences for North Bristol NHS Trust, who is leading the trial, said: "We believe that bone marrow cells have the capability to repair precisely the type of damage that we see in the brain and spinal cord in MS. "So by giving patients very large numbers of their own bone marrow cells we hope that this will help stabilize the disease and bring about some repair." The trial, which started six months ago, is one of the first to use patients' own bone marrow stem cells to treat their MS.
