Neurosteroids are very important for nerve conduction in the brain. The levels decrease as we age, and are lower in those with depression, high stress, and also brains with hypoxic injury. Wish the researchers would ask, why are neurosteroids low in an MS brain? And look at hippocampal atrophy in depression and MS. In any event, they're important....but are not a "cure."

This was picked up by the UK news too. I thought the vitamin D connection was interesting as well as the comment about potentially actually reversing disability. Maybe this is another puzzle piece.

Thekla

I wonder too if this may be a piece of the puzzle. Could it help explain why (given the info we have now) some people with CCSVI apparently do not develop MS? Neurosteroids have powerful neuroprotective properties (including against oxygen/glucose deprivation and ischemia).

I think this is best discussed in the General Discussion forum so if interested, you can see my post there.

Cheer--totally agree it's important to ask "why" there are low levels.

Take care all
