What is a relapse?

Hi Folks

Long time.......

I'd like to say I haven't been here because I've been well.....but sadly I can't.

I do not have MS, but my immediate family member was in Tovaxin study completed by Opexa Therapeutics. I cannot begin to describe how positive the results were for her. Unfortunately, as many of you might already know, once you have completed one of the trials you are ...

Cannabinoids reduce amyloid toxicity

Amyloid proteotoxicity initiates an inflammatory response blocked by cannabinoids
Aging and Mechanisms of Disease (2016) 2, 16012

    The beta amyloid (Aβ) and other aggregating proteins in the brain increase with age and are frequently found within neurons. The mechanistic relationship between intracellular amyloid, aging and neurodegeneration is not, however, well understood. We use a proteotoxicity model based upon the inducible expression of Aβ in a human central nervous system nerve cell line to characterize a ...

Why They Should Treat ALL Phenotypes


J Interferon Cytokine Res. 2016 Jun;36(6):347-57. doi: 10.1089/jir.2015.0177. Epub 2016 May 4.


Axon regeneration in the mature mammalian central nervous system (CNS) is extremely limited after injury. Consequently, functional deficits persist after spinal cord injury (SCI), traumatic brain injury, stroke, and related conditions that involve axonal disconnection. This situation differs from that in the mammalian peripheral nervous system (PNS), where long- distance axon regeneration and substantial ...
