2017 article: Why we fell for clean eating

i can relate (minus the social media ssp, selling etc bits)

Why we fell for clean eating
https://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyl ... ean-eating
"In the spring of 2014, Jordan Younger noticed that her hair was falling out in clumps. “Not cool” was her reaction. At the time, Younger, 23, believed herself to be eating the healthiest of all possible diets. She was a “gluten-free, sugar-free, oil-free, grain-free, legume-free, plant-based raw vegan”. As ...

more evidence about EBV: microRNAs

Maybe closer to an explanation for MS, and also closer to a blood test.

The identification of up-regulated ebv-miR-BHRF1-2-5p targeting MALT1 and ebv-miR-BHRF1-3 in the circulation of patients with multiple sclerosis
Source: http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1 ... 12954/full

Epstein–Barr virus (EBV) is a well-documented aetiological factor for multiple sclerosis (MS). EBV encodes at least 44 microRNAs (miRNAs) that are readily detectable in the circulation of human.

Previous studies have demonstrated that EBV-encoded ...

Trigeminal neuralgia

Is numbness a sign of MS? I read that pain in that area is a sign but for me it's numbness as if I've just been to the dentist. The numbness affects the lateral side of the mouth and upper teeth, places innervated by the trigeminal nerve.

Researchers uncover markers that can signal progressive MS

Scientists at Yale University have uncovered two closely related cytokines – molecules involved in cell communication and movement – that may explain why some people develop progressive multiple sclerosis (MS). The findings could lead the way to developing a novel treatment to prevent progressive forms of MS...Read more - http://www.ms-uk.org/researchers-uncover-markers-can-signal-progressive-ms

Lipoic acid outperformed ocrelizumab

Whole brain atrophy refers to the reduction in total brain volume due to the loss of neurons, and it is considered a marker of MS progression.

For their randomized, double-blind study, Dr. Spain and team enrolled 51 adults aged between 40 and 70 years, all of whom had been diagnosed with SPMS.

A total of 27 participants were randomized to receive ...

change to SPMS could be prevented

MIF and D-DT are potential disease severity modifiers in male MS subjects

Source: http://www.pnas.org/content/early/2017/09/13/1712288114

Abstract

Little is known about mechanisms that drive the development of progressive multiple sclerosis (MS), although inflammatory factors, such as macrophage migration inhibitory factor (MIF), its homolog D-dopachrome tautomerase (D-DT), and their common receptor CD74 may contribute to disease worsening.



These findings indicate that genetically controlled high MIF expression (and D-DT) promotes MS progression ...
