I've had MS for over 12 years & experience lots of symptoms, extreme nerve pain & muscle spasms, cognitive problems moderate & higher, perceptual problems, dizziness, foot drag, difficulty walking, coordination problems (run into walls, drop things), mind numbing fatigue, bladder control problems, & etc.

Tapping UCSF invention, Roche and Versant dive into myelin repair

When mice chew through the insulation that protects a house’s wires, an electrician can repair the wires. People with multiple sclerosis, whose immune systems malfunction and attack the insulation of their own neural wires, don’t have that option. Helping them could be a very big deal in MS care.

Could the first sign of MS be a dodgy tummy?

Could the first sign of Parkinson's and multiple sclerosis be a dodgy tummy?

Anxiety or anticipation can often lead to a feeling of ‘butterflies in the stomach’ – which usually dissipates along with the source of the consternation.

But scientists have discovered that the nerve pathways between the gut and the brain that cause this phenomenon may also be linked to degenerative illnesses such as Parkinson’s disease and multiple sclerosis (MS), as well as some ...

Measuring brain shrinkage in Multiple Sclerosis

Sub-Millimeter Imaging of Brain-Free Water for Rapid Volume Assessment in Atrophic Brains.

Gao KC, Nair G, Cortese IC, Koretsky A, Reich DS.

Abstract

INTRODUCTION: Cerebral atrophy occurs in healthy aging, and in disease processes such as multiple sclerosis (MS), it correlates with disability accumulation. Imaging measurements of brain atrophy are commonly based on tissue segmentation, which is susceptible to classification errors and inconsistencies. High-resolution imaging techniques with strong contrast between brain parenchyma and cerebrospinal fluid ...

forgetful T cells

http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/278199.php
The strength of an individual's immune system depends on the formation of "memory T cells," according to the Cornell team. These T cells remember pathogens they have previously encountered so that the next time they enter the body, they can respond to them quickly and effectively.

Adults create a large number of memory T cells during infection. Approximately 10% of these settle in a "long-lived memory pool," ready ...

Staring into the void: Black holes and MS prognosis

Physicians commonly measure multiple sclerosis (MS) disease activity based on the appearance of new T2-weighted hyperintense MRI lesions, which arise due to edema, inflammation, gliosis, and axonal loss. Given the nonspecific disease processes leading to these lesions and the often-mediocre correlation between T2 lesions and clinical outcomes, however, the search continues for a more specific tool that lends insight into MS pathophysiology and disease activity.

In recent years, increasing attention has been paid to the ...
