For some time I have been noticing that the pathology studies done on MS lesions have shown that the immune system is not involved when the lesion is forming. The immune system becomes involved after the lesion is present and the body is attempting to heal the lesion, in essence the immune system comes to clean up the byproducts and scar tissue.

And I have listed some more info;

The disease form called RRMS is progressive under the cloud of immune system responses which is dependent on the persons immune system having predisposition to 'reacting' at the formation site of MS lesions. The progression is continuing along with/ at the same time as the masking effect of the immune system response at the lesion site.
The DMD drugs are modifying the effect the immune system can have, but it does not change the progression of 'MS' working at the same time.
If the immune system is not involved in such a reactionary way it is because the person has a different or better immune system response to the 'MS' process of damage, and that form of the disease was knick named SPMS or PPMS, or Benign.
Following RRMS people for the past decades has not gotten any closer to the cause of the disease and when the vascular involvement research is spoken about it is shot down with ignorance of the underlying process of 'MS'.
The origin of all forms of MS is not immune system generated it is a process that is caused by blood flow, the immune system has been shown to NOT be present in the early formation of lesions so it cannot be used to study 'MS' causation.
Studying or Modifying immune systems will not get us any closer to the TRUTH about cause of MS!
MS is NOT about faulty immune systems! It lives under that cloud.
Much of the past research on MS supports this opinion, the issue for me is assembling the facts, a challenge for a PwMS. I have listed some of the reasoning on my site under the headings in the discussions area;
