Ultraviolet light may lead way to new treatment for MS and inflammation

Researchers have found a way to harness inflammation with the help of ultraviolet (UV) light, making it possible to design an anti-inflammatory treatment that is more specific and causes fewer side effects...Read more - http://www.ms-uk.org/ultraviolet-light-may-lead-way-new-treatment-ms-and-inflammation-011216

Postharvest Fruit/Vegetable & Meat Chlorination

A few days ago, my son and I somehow ended up in a conversation about baby carrots in the supermarket not being 'real' baby carrots. I did a bit of research and found he was right, but also found out that carrots are soaked in chlorinated water after they are harvested.

Stem Cells, Ocrelizumab, anything else on the horizon?

Hi all! Kind of new, kind of down, and was wondering if any new research was out there to give me a little hope in finding a cure for MS.

Are stem cells any closer to really being the game changer I here so much about? Ocrelizumab sounds nice, but seems limited since it can only help RRMSers to a certain degree.

Anything else on the horizon I should keep my eye on? Thanks for ...

New research into T-cells may lead to immune-based therapies

New research into T-cells may lead to immune-based therapies for MS

A recent study published in Nature Communications showed, for the first time, that a protein complex called LUBAC is responsible for controlling the late-stage development of immune T-cells before they are released into the bloodstream...Read more - http://www.ms-uk.org/new-research-t-cells-may-lead-immune-based-therapies-ms-251116

Australian researcher honoured for discovery that may lead to Anti-Inflammatory therapy

Dr. Rebecca Coll, a young researcher at the University of Queensland Institute of Molecular Bioscience, won the 2016 Research Australia Discovery Award for her work in identifying promising anti-inflammatory compounds that are able to block the NLRP3 inflammasome — a key driver of inflammation. The discovery could greatly benefit patients with inflammatory diseases, such as multiple sclerosis...Read more - http://www.ms-uk.org/australian-researcher-honoured-discovery-may-lead-anti-inflammatory-therapy-241116

Burning painful spot keeps coming back

I keep getting this burning painful spot on the top of my head. It will go away a day or 2 then come back. I usually get them in random spots about once a month but this is the first time I've had a pain spot come back in the same spot more than once. And this one has been back several times. Scares me it will just stay forever and not go away. Ugh. ...

Ocrelizumab (Ocrevus) safety footprints create real worries

FOR SOME REASON, many tends to underestimate the risks with Ocrelizumab ( Ocrevus ) - it is far to much blue sky (sorry) opinions aired about this, to my view, risky MS-agent.

APART FROM ALL these cancer cases in the ORATORIO / PPMS trial (2.3% vs 0.8%) and also worrying 6 cases of breast cancer vs 0 in placebo - if you include the RRMS trial (Opera I/Opera II), it would be good to look ...
