I just get tired of swallowing capsules.
This work provides quantitative evidence of increased iron accumulation in the basal ganglia in MS patients in comparison to healthy controls. We also found that in the subgroup with small LL value, iron accumulation is higher than in the subgroup with large LL value.

All I can get is the Abstract for now:
Eur Neurol. 2010 Jan 30;63(3):136-143. [Epub ahead of print]
Multiple Sclerosis and the Accumulation of Iron in the Basal Ganglia: Quantitative Assessment of Brain Iron Using MRI T(2) Relaxometry.
Burgetova A, Seidl Z, Krasensky J, Horakova D, Vaneckova M.
Department of Radiology, First Faculty of Medicine, General Teaching Hospital, Charles University in Prague, Prague, Czech Republic.
The aim of this work was to quantify the accumulation of iron in the basal ganglia in multiple sclerosis (MS) patients ...
PMID: 20130410 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
but did you ask, or could you ask, Dr Burgetova if the iron removed was from the circulating blood, or does it somehow pull the embedded iron out of the brain and wherever else it accumulates?
I am getting EDTA chelation now, but don't think that chelates iron--is aiming for the cholesterol/calcium plaques--but if i knew for sure the deferoxamine or deferiprone would take the iron from brain, I would have my doctor administer that.
Many thanks for any info.
