Symposium on Spinal Cord injury/repair. Video.

Hi all, I know there's not much new under the sun here, this was mentioned awhile ago but the video is great for newbies like me and oldbies too! I stumbled across this on the Research Channel and was fascinated by it all.

Also it is good at explaining in picture form some of the various processes as it relates to oligodendrocytes, myelin, calcium and sodium channels, etc etc.

FWIW applies here of course.

Which comes first? Candida, CCSVI or MS?

This will be a long post, but please bear with me and hear me out. I have NO medical background, I’m just another MS patient on a similar search for answers to the question, What causes MS.

Zamboni at Charcot foundation meeting !!!!

The CCSVI Facebook page has a new entry this morning about the Charcot Foundation Meeting in Europe. Apparently Dr. Zamboni and Dr. Salvi will have their CCSVI posters there. It's being held in Lisbon November 12, 13 and 14. I was disappointed that Dr. Zamboni is not giving a talk !!!! We all know the lack of impact of his posters at ECTRIMS. The Charcot foundation page has a button survey to see if a ...

Clexane injections (Heparin)

My little story about Clexane:
Some of you know I was scared to inject myself.
I am lucky I do not have any psychological block against it.
Day before the procedure, a nurse injected it. I was watching. She started about 15 cm far from my belly and the needle was inside. After she pushed slowly the syringe to inject the liquid inside of my skin. It was over and little bit painful for about ...

Funding for Buffalo CTEVD study !! What can WE do !!??

From Sawdoggie on another thread :

"The good news is, they are very optimistic that they are on to something and the first phase of the study will be released either late this month or early in December. I specifially mentioned to Dr. Weinstock-Guttman that the press release and press conference seemed very confident and she confirmed that it was. The first phase is going to include roughly 500 people and after this they will ...

"Crawling T-Cells?

Stumbled over this article and thought I'd share

Real-Time Observation Sheds New Light On Multiple Sclerosis
Scientists at the Max Planck Institute of Neurobiology, the University Medical Center Göttingen, using a two-photon microscope, succeeded in tracing the movements of aggressive T-cells. Outside the nervous system, the T- cells moved just as we would expect them to; most cells were floating along with the flow of the bloodstream. "Things ...

[b]New Tool To Accelerate Discovery Of Autoimmune Disease Me

This looked interesting, but it was more than my non-medical gray matter can process, lol.

New Tool To Accelerate Discovery Of Autoimmune Disease Mechanisms And Therapies

Currently, 5 - 8% of the U.S. population is afflicted with an autoimmune disease.
To help researchers investigate these common pathways, The Jackson Laboratory has published Pathways to Discovery: Autoimmune Diseases (http://www.jax.org/jaxmice/pathways/autoimmune), a unique, interactive, and publicly accessible online resource that illustrates the genetic networks involved in five ...
