Study highlights possible role of glial brain cells in neurological conditions

Every brain cell has a nucleus, or a central command station. Scientists have shown that the passage of molecules through the nucleus of a star-shaped brain cell, called an astrocyte, may play a critical role in health and disease. The study, published in the journal Nature Neuroscience, was partially funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH).... Read more - http://www.ms-uk.org/nervecells

My trike ride :-)

http://sullivanweb.me/MyTrike/videos/TrickycleRide.avi

I ride real fast. :-) The first half, I had the camera on my helmet. It pointed up most of the time. At the turn-around point there is a railroad bridge. Then Suzanne gets the helmet on top of her head on top of the giant Trek bicycle for the trip back.

All very fast at 12x speed.

Kappa & Lambda

Soooo recently my Neurologist has ordered addition blood work to look for Oligoclonal banding. The results cam bace as

" A faint ill defied band of IGG, type Kappa, is detected. A faint ill defined band of IGG type lambda is detected." The test does not indicate whether these findings were polyclonal or monoclonal.


Now, everything that I have come across says there is potential that this is indicative of Multiple Myeloma or MGUS. However, ...

Inside out or outside in?

This is from an interesting blog about research.

http://multiple-sclerosis-research.blog ... heory.html

Abstract


The MSRV (Multiple Sclerosis Associated Retro Virus) belongs to the human endogenous retrovirus HERV-W family. The envelope protein originating from the MSRV has been found in most patients with multiple sclerosis (MS). This protein (Env-ms) has pro-inflammatory properties for several types of immune cells and could therefore play a role in MS pathogenesis by promoting the leukocyte ...
