NASHVILLE -- Among multiple sclerosis (MS) patients experiencing breakthrough disease on standard-dose once-a-week interferon beta 1-a (IFN-1α), switching to twice-weekly dosing may offer advantages, a researcher reported here.

More than half of patients with breakthrough disease and adequate follow-up (26/52 patients) who were switched to twice-weekly treatment had no further clinical relapses, new T2 lesions, or enhanced lesions on MRI, or worsening of Expanded Disability Status Scale (EDSS) during at least 14 months (range 14 to 192 months) of follow-up, according to Robert Baumhefner, MD, of the VA Greater Los Angeles Healthcare System.

He began working with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Central Ohio in 2013, raising money, giving speeches and visiting patients at the same hospital he once frequented. He also started his hero program, hosting pediatric cancer patients such as Gomez at his games and meeting them on the field after the final whistle.

But Lampson soon started to question where donated money went in those larger nonprofits. In 2014, he started his own, the Lampstrong Foundation. It’s collectively run by his parents, three older siblings and staff at the Columbus Crew, all on a volunteer basis.

In Columbus, he started events such as the Kick Cancer Cup, with local celebrities playing a game at Columbus’ stadium to raise money for his foundation. When his contract ran out, Lampson signed with the Chicago Fire for the 2016 season and forged a partnership with the Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago. He did several fundraising events involving doughnuts, his favorite food, from running a counter at a local shop to hosting a doughnut tour around the city.

When Chicago traded him to the Loons this season, Lampson’s work began again.

He toured hospitals before settling on working with Masonic Children’s. United also has been supportive, from helping set up the hospital visits and heroes for home and away games to his teammates and club staff buying and wearing his Lampstrong Foundation T-shirts.

Laurent Duvernay-Tardif earns medical degree from McGill University

But Duvernay-Tardif said residency will have to wait, at least for now. "After that, I'd have to start over the whole thing". It's an honour to be a member of that community and I take the responsibility seriously.
