Remyelination is extensive in a subset of multiple sclerosis

Has this been posted already? Just thought it was an interesting study....

Remyelination is extensive in a subset of multiple sclerosis patients

Although spontaneous remyelination does occur in multiple sclerosis lesions, its extent within the global population with this disease is presently unknown. We have systematically analysed the incidence and distribution of completely remyelinated lesions (so-called shadow plaques) or partially remyelinated lesions (shadow plaque areas) in 51 autopsies of patients with different clinical courses and ...

The Letter

What about a letter that expresses all our concerns and our need for more in the way of treatments and the research findings we need to get our lives back. This would be a world wide partition with who knows how many signatures to express the feelings of people with ms. We could have a collaborative effort to design a cover letter of what we need to say and let this letter take its course ...

For gibbledygook

Fair warning to anyone who likes to put on blinders---I'm the oddball who has sought out comprehensive treatment for my husband who has SPMS. For background see http://www.thisisms.com/ftopict-3055.html. And yes, if you're curious, he is improving very nicely on the Wheldon combined antibiotic protocol, antivirals, heavy metal chelation, LDN, and a slew of carefully selected supplements.

Some interesting information has recently crossed my path that I want to share with gibbledygook and those others who ...

Where's Jimmylegs?

Hope all's ok with you in Oz Jimmy. You're usually so prolific.
Perhaps you've just snuck over to Cambridge to visit Ian and get your own back whilst he's in a vulnerable position!? (joke)

Rebif on Hold?

Greetings,

Appreciate the forum. Very informative. I'm legal guardian for my mentally challenged brother who is 4 years into his MS diagnosis.

Wondering if anyone has gone off Rebif cold turkey. Neuro has Tysabri infusion scheduled but wants my brother off Rebif for 30 days prior. Anything we need to watch for?

Again, thanks for so much information, much of it gleaned the hard way.

Todd
