blood coagulation factors linked again to MS

This time, the factors linked to MS are prothrombin (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thrombin) and factor X (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Factor_X). Interestingly, PPMS and NMO patients did not show this profile.

Prothrombin and factor X are elevated in multiple sclerosis patients.

Animal models have implicated an integral role for coagulation factors in neuroinflammatory diseases like multiple sclerosis (MS) beyond their role in hemostasis. ...

Balo concentric sclerosis linked to blood flow

A new interesting article linking blood flow and MS. In this case, the focus in Balo concenctic sclerosis. The article is this one:

Morphogenesis of the demyelinating lesions in Baló’s concentric sclerosis
http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/ar ... 7716300081

In this article, the authors speak very little about RRMS but they say some interesting things:

Reduced blood flow in the white matter in MS

Of special pathogenetic significance for the relapsing–remitting MS, is ...

Go Fund Me again...

This is cross-posted from General Discussion, because some only read the CCSVI forum. Plus, I am inordinately proud of my prototype...

I have decided on the RGB Shades which was a successful Kickstarter project. I am nearly ready to start using them. I have bought an Arduino and a little daughter board with an accelerometer and gyroscope on it. There is also a thermometer on the same chip but I don't think I'll need it. ...

girl with anti-MOG and venous sinus trombosis

Everything is together in this case. Venous sinus trombosis, auto-anitbodies (anti-MOG) and CSF hypertension.

presence of common vascular malformations in MS

Vertebral hemangiomas in the thoracic spine of multiple sclerosis patients are connected with fewer demyelinating lesions at the same level. Possible impact on pathophysiology and clinical course

Mechanisms of angiogenesis regulate multiple sclerosis (MS) lesions’ evolution, displaying both neuroprotective and harmful effects.

cortex lesions promoted by low flow of CSF

This is not written by conspiration theorists, but by neuropathologists:

"Demyelination in the cerebral cortex was related to inflammatory infiltrates in the meninges, which was pronounced in invaginations of the brain surface (sulci) and possibly promoted by low flow of the cerebrospinal fluid in these areas"

7 Tesla MRI demonstrates vascular pathology in Baló’s concen

Any thoughts about this??

7 Tesla MRI demonstrates vascular pathology in Baló’s concentric sclerosis

http://msj.sagepub.com/content/19/1/120.abstract


Abstract

Baló’s concentric sclerosis (BCS) is an inflammatory demyelinating disease related to multiple sclerosis; its underlying pathology remains unclear. At 7 T MRI in a 19-year-old female BCS patient, microhaemorrhages and ectatic veins were found in T2 hyperintense regions, features which have not been previously reported in conjunction with BCS, and these findings may ...
