"Now Japanese Macaques could hold the key to helping people like Susan. Scientists at the Oregon National Primate Center have discovered a new herpes virus in monkeys that causes an MS like disease in Macaques.

These brain lesions are a classic indicator of inflammation in people with MS. The discovery could help scientists solve how the disease develops and stop its onset. "

I was at OHSU the other day and had my blood drawn for this study. When they have the results I will receive an email and will provide a link. Obviously it will be awhile before that happens.

On a humorous side note. My friends had a field day with me when I told them I was getting tested for "Monkey Herpes".

Herpes groups? They're continuing on the right track at last.
28/07/10, 04/10/10, 16/11/10 - Dopplers x3 Ireland, Poland, Scotland.
12/10/10 - 1st procedure, Poland. Symptoms worsened. No improvement.
Verdict: I urge caution + am taking a back seat watching research ATM.
13/02/12 - Started Wheldon ABX protocol.
