MS as Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus (NPH) new research

The dominant hypothesis in multiple sclerosis is that it is an autoimmune disease; however, there is considerable evidence that the immune attack on myelin may be secondary to a cytodegenerative event. Furthermore, the immune modulating therapies longest in clinical use, although modulating the frequency and severity of exacerbation, do not affect long-term progression towards disability. Clearly alternative perspectives on the etiology of multiple sclerosis are warranted. In this paper I outline the commonalities between idiopathic ...

MS as a disease of endothelial dysfunction

Lots of new research showing the connection between a dysfunction in the cellular lining of the 60,000 miles of blood vessels in the human body, called the endothelium, and multiple sclerosis. The endothelium is the largest secreting organ in our bodies, and when it doesn't work, diseases of neurodegeneration can occur, due to hypoperfusion (slowed cerebral blood flow.)

The aim of the study was to assess endothelial function in patients with MS and in ...

Exercise may improve cognitive performance in people with MS

Background
Cognitive impairment is a major debilitating feature of multiple sclerosis, and is estimated to occur in more than 50% of people living with MS at some point during the disease. These cognitive impairments can appear as difficulties with learning and memory, and deterioration of executive functions, such as planning or decision-making, focusing attention, multi-tasking, and problem-solving. People living with cognitive deficits can experience greatly diminished quality of life and loss of independence while facing ...
