Dr. Haacke does not have many fans in the neurology dept at Wayne State
Remember the wrath of Khan? He even used science fiction references in this editorial http://jnnp.bmj.com/content/82/4/355
What's interesting about this study is how it kinda PROVES that EAE is not an appropriate model for MS.
Hypoxia for rats with EAE is good, but not for humans with MS.
We already know that MS lesions show hypoxic stress--http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12764056http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12559509
Pertussis toxin, used in most EAE models, might be what's responsible for the protective result of hypoxia....http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/8458024
this is all way above my paygrade, but it looks like more proof that EAE just isn't MS.
