How did it become wrongly coded? If it is attacking myelin (which, IMHO, is over-represented as the only thing that is under immune system's mistaken attacks) how does it become immortalized?
I think one feature of "MS" that has been under-recognized is its (to me, anyway) mysterious complementarity with cancer. I guess if DNA is being re-coded somehow, another way (and this relates to angiogenesis, the means by which the body deals with hypoxia) might be connected with the fractal expressions controlling growth of blood vessels. That might explain the uncontrolled growth of blood vessels in cancer cells, which leads to masses of growing tissue that don't respond to apoptosis signals.
Mutated DNA gives rise to an infinity of possible problems for the human host. Maybe those particular mutations in "MS" are less likely to occur, if those fractal-driven areas of DNA have been used by the virus for another purpose (like ensuring the virus's survival). That might make it complementary with "MS". In that sense the recoding is not mistaken at all, but Darwinian, and thus very hard to avoid.
I guess it might help to know more genetics.
While I don't discount the expertise of drug scientists (money has a way of ensuring that), and of course I have a built-in faith in the intelligence of pw"MS", I think doctors can, even unintentionally, lead them down a blind alley, because of drug-oriented thinking.
I am past thinking about making a killing on "MS" drugs. They seem to be the victims of some stock-manipulations, and besides, I can't take it with me.
