New MRI Scanner at UCL Institute of Neurology in London

Roads Closed For Powerful MRI Scanner Delivery

Roads were closed in central London on Saturday as a new high-powered, six tonne MRI scanner was installed at the UCL Institute of Neurology in Queen Square.

The new scanner is more powerful than previous ones and will allow much better images to be taken of the effects of MS throughout its course.

Professor David Miller from the Institute of Neurology, ...

"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 (, a unique, interactive, and publicly accessible online resource that illustrates the genetic networks involved in five ...

EPA and blood thinners

Hello, I'm going to have the procedure with Dr Simka in December.
I currently take fish body oil by the bucketful and my blood has become very thin and slow to clot.
I dont know my INR but assume it would not be a good idea to continue with the EPA/EFA as you all seem to go onto blood thinners post procedure.
I'm guessing that my blood would be way too thin if I continued ...

Eye doctors and CCSVI

Hi all, I have my annual eye exam next week. Just a regular checkup. Thankfully I've never had ON or any eye other issues, other than being near sighted. Earlier this year I dropped off Dr. Z's December 2008 paper and the Charring Cross paper to my eye doctor. Next week I'll bring him up to date with Dr. Dake, the September conference, Dr. Haacke's website and the Jacobs study.
My question is -- is ...

CCSVI and MS Heat Sensitivity

Hypothesis : CCSVI in Multiple Sclerosis and why people with MS are so heat sensitive

Ozarkcanoer - November 5, 2009

Temperature sensitivity and selective brain cooling in humans : From Dean Falk - University at Albany, SUNY :

The human brain is an exquisitely heat-sensitive organ. According to noted vascular physiologist, Mary Ann Baker: “A rise of only four or five degrees C above normal begins to disturb brain functions. For example, high fevers in ...
