New theory? "blocking fibrinogen's blood clotting activity prevented microglial activation and nerve damage". Wondering if this can already be done with a current drug?
Dr. Akassoglou has focused on the role of the blood-brain barrier leak in MS and has discovered that leakage of the blood clotting protein fibrinogen can trigger brain inflammation,"
"Our results provide the first evidence linking leakage of fibrinogen to neuronal damage," said Dr. Akassoglou, "Vascular changes are the instigator of neurotoxicity."http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/20 ... 154215.htm
