Popovich, professor of neuroscience and of molecular virology, immunology and medical genetics and director of the Center for Brain and Spinal Cord Repair.

"They may also help explain ...

Astrocytes and cerebral blood flow

Maybe I'm missing something, but I'm surprised that no one (as far as I can tell) has delved into the link between what Dignan has called the two biggest recent developments in MS -- CCSVI and the possibly integral role astrocytes play in the development of MS.

I've only quickly scanned a couple of abstracts, but it seems that there's a lot of research about astrocytes playing a critical role in cerebral blood flow. Could ...

New warning from out this week from the FDA- PML seems to be a growing complication in only MS patients. But is not a concern in Crohns.

About the man: Steve is 56, ½ Sicilian, ¼ Italian, 1/8 Irish, and 1/8 German. He was born and raised in Schenectady, NY, and he’s lived in the Dallas area for ...
