FIRST GENE MUTATION FOUND - NR1H3

70% of the people with this mutation (NR1H3) will develop MS, though all they constitute just a small subgroup inside the MS population. The discovery is reported in a couple of news sites like http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/310672.php and http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/releases/310630.php

This affects people with PPMS with the "rapidly progressive multiple sclerosis" subtype. NR1H3 is the name of the gene involved in constructing a specific protein, LXRA,(which ...

Urology male patients

Urology, male patients
Hi

I have started a petition to send to my MP about having male nurses to attend male patients in urology clinics.

The area that I live, is covered by the Pennine trust.

They only have female nurses in there urology clinics.

That means that males who like myself who are wheelchair bound and invariably have to use or are fitted with a catheter need these services.

There is little dignity living ...

I am tired of all the breakthroughs

http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/british-columbia/ms-gene-ubc-1.3612025

Now she has found a genetic cause for progressive MS. This news will reverberate throughout the medical and scientific worlds. ...

"stunning" results from stem cell expmnt on stroke victims

Stanford researchers are seeing stunning results from injecting stem cells into the brains of stroke victims.
https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/to-your-health/wp/2016/06/02/stanford-researchers-stunned-by-stem-cell-experiment-that-helped-stroke-patient-walk/

BUT, the researcher is having trouble getting the money in order for the university to approve the ...
