LDNNow are a political/pressure group of individuals dedicated to getting Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN) accepted into modern medicine and trialled for the myriad of uses it shows benefit for. These uses include autoimmune diseases and many cancers (cell proliferative diseases). Each of us benefits from using LDN and we simply want to see it available to others. We have access to it because we know about it, but until everyone has heard of it and is given a fair chance to use it if they need to, we will continue our campaign.
In our unanimous opinion, it is scandalous that if another use is found for a generic drug after its patent expires, it cannot be made available without trials: these trials are too expensive when the sponsor wants to recover their investment. This is a blatant case of profit standing in the way of people’s lives. People are suffering needlessly because they cannot get LDN, or because they are not being told about it. This is not an exaggeration, but neither is it intentional: it is just a consequence of leaving health care to the world of business. We need to short circuit this apathy right Now!
“Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN) is a drug that is credited with helping those with HIV/AIDS, cancer, autoimmune diseases, and central nervous system disorders (including MS) by modulating the immune system. As well as being effective it is cheap, costing less than one pound a day, and could save the NHS vast sums of money. We therefore urge the Govenment to fund a trial of LDN on the NHS so that everyone in the UK can reap the benefits of this drug.” Stephen Crabb MP

The understanding of the way that LDN/OGF works is based on 30+ years of research by Drs Ian S Zagon and Dr Pat J McLaughlin at Penn State University. The LDNScience website has a full description of the mechanism but for those with a less scientific background here is a simple summary:-
Video from LDNScience - How LDN Works - LDNscience™ – Communicating all the scientific research and rationale for Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN), Opioid Growth Factor (OGF) and related therapies. LDNscience™ is a project of the MedInsight® Research Institute.at LDNScience.org.
LDN is not a miracle drug. It is a drug that implements the biotherapy approach to medicine, which is all about artificially stimulating the bodies own defences and systems in order to restore control over systemic diseases. This control is how most people remain clear of these diseases in normal health. The immune system we have has evolved over billions of years and does many jobs far better than our modern, symptom relief drug culture ever can.
