Oligoclonal immunoglobulins

We all know how those Oligo bands are used to diagnose MS....the bands show signs that IgG has been elevated in the CNS, and myelin is being destroyed. The story MS patients have been told is that this is caused by a rogue immune system, eating up their myelin for no good reason.

BUT....Oligo bands are found in other cerebrovascular diseases...not just MS.

Oligoclonal immunoglobulin (Ig) bands were found in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) by agarose ...

"Beggars" become "Choosers"

It is time for people to start thinking.
Let us review the situation of MS sufferers before the Zamboni's revolution.
Nobody knew the etiology of MS but everybody knew the inevitable outcome. Being diagnosed with MS meant a sentence to a painful and distressing death. Neurologists and allied professionals prescribed all sorts of different treatments for a condition they did not know the cause of. These different kinds of treatment, from shots of prednisolone, interferon ...

2 letters to editor re: Zamboni's article in JNNP

One is from Steven Brenner, neurologist in St. Louis MO and the other is from Marian Simka, specialist in angiology in Poland. Isn't someone on this site seeing her?

At any rate, Brenner I can understand but I can't make heads or tails as to what Simka is saying here. Easy to understand medical lingo, anyone??! Maybe these letters are already posted on the sticky above?--I didn't see ...

Rationale and preliminary results ...... Doc to text

The preliminary results paper by Zamboni is a scanned document, and therefore cannot be searched through or easily quoted, so I recently ran the pages into an on-line OCR site, and got the following. I thought others might find it of some use.

NB: I have not proof read the pages, they are literally full of mistakes.

Skepticism or ignorance?

Skepticism is certainly useful, especially in the clinical field, because it avoids unjustified enthusiasm for unproven theories.
Skeptics about the endovascular treatment of MS should probably bother to read the papers published by prof. Zamboni and his team. It seems to me an unlikely coincidence that they found a defective venous drainage from the brain, due to congenital anomalies of the jugular and/or the azygos veins, in 100% of the patients with proven MS. No ...

More Questions on Palo Alto/San Jose

I completely stink at searching for anything on this site. So I need some help.

It has been discussed about ways to get from the San Jose airport to Palo Alto and vice-versa

This I found out:

1)Rental Car $$ can't afford this - husband wants to eat....
2)Taxi is about $50 each way -again this could be food money
3)Sheraton does NOT have a shuttle to and from the Airport

Are there other shuttles ...

Lisinopril blood pressure treatment

I was wondering what you people think about the recent study that was all over news using Lisinopril (a standard blood pressure medication with few side effects) to very effectively treat MS-like disease in rodents, in the context of this thread?

(see e.g. ... 4420090817)

In particular I wonder if the blood-pressure lowering property would be an additional benefit to the shift Lisinopril apparently induces in the T ...
