LDN Petition

I am sure that you are aware that many people including the MS Society are calling for more research into Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN).

On 22 March 2005, The House of Commons Health Committee published a comprehensive document entitled ''The Influence of The Pharmaceutical Industry ''

The Committee recognized that the Pharmaceutical industry was unlikely to undertake research in areas that were unlikely to produce a financial return, and accordingly recommended that there were instances where the Government needs to step in and fund the appropriate research.

We at LDN now believe that LDN is such a case and are confident that the Government / taxpayer will get a major return on its investment in LDN.

A petition has been submitted to No. 10 Downing St. and we are now asking you to support this petition. Please note that by signing this petition, you are not endorsing LDN in any way, nor are you becoming an advocate for LDN, and you are not in any way influencing or convincing any person diagnosed with MS to try LDN.

This petition will also help those in the medical profession to provide another option to patients regarding treatments already being offered.
It is simply a petition to the Government to fund trials into LDN, no more, and no less than that.

To sign the petition you can go there via
or you can go direct to the petition at

We would be grateful if you could ask your fellow members, your colleagues, your friends and family to also support this petition.

The deadline to sign the petition is the 29th November 2009
