Some MS attacks presented as a movie

While reading articles about MS, I have found one with some impressive movies. They were made during a year, taking a MRI picture each week. It is possible to see how lesions develop and heal. The man is reported to be symptoms-free during this period, but the images show that the disease never stops.

The article itself is also quite interesting, speaking mainly about MRI procedures and their uses.

But for me, the most interesting ...

How CCSVI leads to SPMS

The French Neurologist Jean-Martin Charcot, practicing at the Parisian la Pitié-Salpetrière hospital, first described Multiple Sclerosis (Sclérose en Plaques) in 1868. Among other things, he defined MS as a “rigidity disorder”. He thus set the tone in the Neurology profession of an unfortunate prejudice towards MS patients by claiming their “rigidity” symptoms were psychological in origin - signs of neurotic (usually female) hysteria. I now believe it is just this rigidity which is at the ...

CSF from MS patients produce "angiogenesis"

First evidence of in vivo pro-angiogenic activity of cerebrospinal fluid samples from multiple sclerosis patients.

Increased vascular density and endothelial cell proliferation have been demonstrated in multiple sclerosis (MS) white matter, as well as an elevated vascular endothelial growth factor expression was detected in reactive astrocytes of both active and inactive chronic demyelinated lesions and in sera of MS patients during clinical relapses. In this study, we have investigated the angiogenic activity of cerebrospinal fluid ...
