Study finds shingles may be related to elevated MS risk

If it's on your mind and it has to do with multiple sclerosis in any way, post it here.

Speaking of CIDP, here is a recent paper that looks at the regulatory Tcell function (Treg) of people with this disease compared with healthy controls:

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19886739

The researchers conclude that the people with CIDP have Tregs that are defficient at suppressor activity compared to healthy individuals.

Thanks, gainsbourg. I'll add this to my thread I started in the Natural Approach section regarding Tregs.

CV factor- I think a lot can be learned about MS by esatablishing what it has in common with similar demyelinating diseases like CIDP. I wonder if anyone has tested whether varicella zoster antibody DNA is also found in the cebrospinal fluid of those who have CIDP?

I didn't know about the Tregs thread - will read it soon as poss.
