I made sure to drink a ton of water the days before so the csf would come out fast, which worked. They ended up taking out a little more (14 instead of the 12) and she said I might ...

Major MS cognitive rehabilitation trial funded by NHS

The Cognitive Rehabilitation for Attention and Memory trial (CRAMMS), a major study to be conducted on patients suffering from multiple sclerosis, was recently awarded £1,167,000 by the National Health Service (NHS), through its Health Technology Assessment (HTA) Programme.

The study, which is expected to be the largest trial of its kind in the United Kingdom, is designed to examine MS patients’ cognitive rehabilitation capacities and determine if a group of cognitive rehabilitation programs is able ...

A new mouse model for Multiple Sclerosis fatigue?

Researchers presented a new mouse model for fatigue at the 2014 Society for Neuroscience meeting. The model is the first of its kind and works by manipulating the pro-inflammatory cytokine interleukin-1β.

There’s a new animal model coming down the pike that may be of use to multiple sclerosis researchers. At the Society for Neuroscience (SfN) annual meeting in Washington, D.C., researchers announced that they have developed a new mouse model for fatigue. This is the ...

Could alcohol reduce the risk of getting MS?

According to the abstract of the study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, the researchers' goal was to “investigate the possible association of alcohol consumption with the risk of developing ...

Remyelination: new research from Karolinska Institute

New research from the Karolinska Institute shows us, once again, that human and mouse brains are not the same. Past assumptions about remyelination have been incorrect. Attempting to understand remyelination in the human brain using a mouse model simply does not work.

But there are things humans can do to remyelinate their own brains---and it's all about using the brain, and plasticity.

Here's the new research, which is calling into question all MS specialists thought ...

Tongue shocks hasten healing

A little-known fact: the tongue is directly connected to the brain stem. This anatomical feature is now being harnessed by scientists to improve rehabilitation.

A team at the University of Wisconsin–Madison recently found that electrically stimulating the tongue can help patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) improve their gait. MS is an incurable disease in which the insulation around the nerves becomes damaged, disrupting the communication between body and brain. One symptom is loss of muscle ...

Clinical focus in MS: Novel approaches to progressive MS

Clinical focus in MS: Novel approaches to progressive disease

Although the drug development pipeline still contains numerous products intended for patients with relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS), the consensus among clinicians is that relapses can be effectively squelched in nearly all RRMS patients with the dozen or so currently approved therapies.

Patients now have a choice between injectables and oral drugs, and within the injectable class there is a range of dosing intervals and delivery types ...

What's the verdict on coffee?

I was recently diagnosed with acid reflux disease (pile it on!). Coffee really appears to be the biggest inflammatory agent in my gut, although unfortunately beer and spicy foods are some of my favorite things and those are also naughty. There are a lot considerations I'm making regarding my finicky gut and possible ties to MS progression, but that's just a side note.

I get up at 6:30 AM so a cup of coffee is ...
