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 ...

Ashton Embry about the misconducts of some teams

The most recent negative Canadian CCSVI study, lead by University of British Columbia neurologist Dr. Anthony Traboulsee and published in The Lancet, did not utilize the original scientific protocol of Dr. Paolo Zamboni. ... X/abstract

This new study displayed even further arrogance and audacity, by deviating from all other published venous and arterial studies, utilizing a false criteria to assess jugular vein stenosis.

Stenosis is routinely measured by ...

PPMS can be passed to mice by CSF. IS PPMS DIFFERENT?

What do you think about this article? Is PPMS a different disease that RRMS/SPMS? Does it have an immune or chemical origin?

If this article is confirmed, I think we are in front of the major discovery in MS since CCSVI. The authors took CSF from PPMS patients and injected it into mice. They developed lesions while the CSF from RRMS patients had mostly no effect.

MS and vascular problems associated

Of course, to have two conditions associated does not imply causality, but I think the association between MS and vascular problems cannot be discussed anymore.

A systematic review of the incidence and prevalence of cardiac, cerebrovascular, and peripheral vascular disease in multiple sclerosis

Findings regarding the prevalence of vascular comorbidities in multiple sclerosis (MS) are conflicting.

The objective of this review is to estimate the ...

Maybe it is possible to protect the BBB

This is a recently published article about the BBB breakdown. It is still too early to know whether it is important, but I think it is worthy to have it around here.

Interleukin-34 Restores Blood-Brain Barrier Integrity by Upregulating Tight Junction Proteins in Endothelial Cells.

Interleukin-34 (IL-34) is a newly discovered cytokine as an additional ligand for colony stimulating factor-1 receptor (CSF1R), and its functions are expected ...
