Given all her contributions, shouldn't we be paying OddDuck?
Hi, Bromley. Hey, that's what I keep asking my boss!! hehehe.......
Well, thank you for the "mention".
My so-called contributions are only because I like to talk a lot.
Probably too much.
But, you're right......I'm an "information junkie", I call it. I read it all!! (And thank you
for providing things FOR me - and us all - to read!) This article was a really good one, too!!
Isn't it amazing, though, and perhaps a tad "disconcerting", also, that so many
medical conditions are linked back to the immune system in some way or another?
The more I got into medical research (especially neurological), the more I kept thinking, geez.....just where does one thing leave off and another begin? (Disease-wise) Ya know? Fascinating stuff, though.
You know what is odd? MS strikes more females than male, and autism (it says) strikes more males than females. I wonder what, if any, correlation or NON-correlation might be able to be found with that? I'd love to see a breakdown of the specific involved cytokines!
I mean...........you see what I'm talking about?
So far just today, we've got publications with Crohn's, autism, and at least some patterns of MS all involving cytokines. That just brings me back to being excited again about progress researchers appear to be making in selective cytokine targeting.
I should make a list with all of these involved cytokines and physio/biological manifestations, and see what overlaps and what doesn't, etc. Oh...........but then you'd have to add asthma, and some others, also.
GIVE ME A LAB!
The company, Entelos I think it is, has been putting together "in silico" computer models of some diseases. Wouldn't that be fascinating to work with something like that?
P.S. OT for a second......How are you bromley? (You remember I was a tad concerned about and for you for quite a while there.)
