Recipient of experimental Multiple Sclerosis treatment doing remarkably well (radio Q&A)

Five years ago, medical student Alex Normandin made a decision that could have helped his Multiple Sclerosis, or could have killed him. He decided to let doctors in Ottawa use chemotherapy to destroy his immune system in an effort to reboot it.

His gamble had unexpectedly positive results, and his treatment stopped his condition in its tracks.

Normandin is now a doctor in Montreal. Nick Ashdown reached him in his clinic over the phone.

This piece was done by Nick Ashdown for Midweek on CKCU 93.1 FM in Ottawa. It was aired on April 3, 2013.
