I didn't mean to start a Sunday negatively but actually the situation is even worse.
I didn't for one second consider your message to be "negative". While some feel that questioning established knowledge and protocol on MS research is "negative", it is anything but that.
In addition to what you mentioned, what specifically ruffled my feathers was:
Until very recently we believed that nervous dysfunction in MS was completely depending on the accumulation of lesions in the white matter of the CNS.
that inflammation itself causes at least some of the temporary disability (probably a lot) which resolves when the exacerbation and inflammation recede involves only common logic, yet researchers commonly overlook that, or at least don't mention it in articles.
Of course the big four pharmas who produce today's approved MS medications conveniently stick-handle around that information.
