I have read this many, many, many times in my research. That the permiable BBB is the problem.
3. That MS is a disease of the bbbLyon wrote:(SIMPLIFY!) because I'm trying to understand what you were trying to point out in your original post.
This THREAD (ie line of thought) "believes" that its the BBB that is dysfunctioning, NOT the imune system. Now the million dollar question is why? And the answer to the million dollar question is the first step. Also, the immune system may become deregulated by an effect of the BBB dysfunction.Lyon wrote:Something else I wondering and you didn't make clear....you feel that the permiable bbb really is the first step in the MS process and NOT just the first step which researchers have identified at this point?
Yes, there are "many" people who believe this to be the case, HOWEVER, they are FAR outweighed by the research on immune system etc. AND the drugs I see in the market or comming to market are aimed at the immune attack. No one does any measurements directly of the effects of these treatments on the BBB?, or has a treatment specifically aimed at the BBB. It suprises me, specifically when steroids can work so well (short term, and work by closing the BBB), and noone tries to find a long term solution down the same path of action. It really appears lacking to me.Chriss55 wrote:I have read this many, many, many times in my research. That the permiable BBB is the problem.
