Interesting Gut Microbiome results

The idea being that I receive a breakdown of what type and how much certain tyopes of bacteria populate my gut.

new model of MS: B cells infected by EBV

A recent failure with Tysabri has shed some light into MS pathogenesis. It seems that is not EBV itself, but some B-cells infected by EBV, the cause of MS.

Westward How?

A friend (able) from SF just flaked on me for June in either Berkeley or Daly City. This makes me wonder if California is the answer when I could survive in Oregon or Washington, maybe even Nevada. Time is tighter than I want, but I need to put on my thinking cap and explore potential solutions. Please PM me, if.
