If it's on your mind and it has to do with multiple sclerosis in any way, post it here.

Disability and T2 lesions: 20-year follow-up in RRMS

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/1823 ... stractPlus

--Frank


Clinically isolated syndromes (CIS), such as optic neuritis, brainstem or spinal cord syndromes are frequently the first clinical presentations of multiple sclerosis. However, not all CIS patients develop multiple sclerosis and in those who do, disability is highly variable. In previous follow-up studies, brain lesions on T(2)-weighted MRI are associated with increased risk of multiple sclerosis and to an extent disability. We evaluated the longitudinal ...

Molecular Mimicry-thanks, NHE

Thanks for the explanation, NHE.

http://www.mult-sclerosis.org/MolecularMimicry.html

In my year of studying, I had not read such a clear description of this process. It must be frustrating for the elders on ThisisMS to have to continually answer newbie questions. I appreciate your time and patience and repetition.

The real irony in all of this is that my husband is actually OK with his diagnosis, and is dealing with it. He's ...

Accelerated Cure Project: The Cure Map

From The Cure Map:

"Known diseases are caused by one or more of only 5 root determinants:

1. Genetics (defects in, or bad combinations of, genetic information)
2. Pathogens (viruses, bacteria, prions)
3. Nutrition (imbalance in external substances the body requires)
4. Toxic Agents (chemical, electro-magnetic or nuclear radiation)
5. Trauma (physical damage)"


Is this really true? Here's from Medline Plus on Somatization Disorder:

"Somatization disorder is a chronic condition in which there are numerous ...

Bioidentical hormones and MS

A good friend and naturopathic doctor sent me info on this book-
Wondering if folks have any thoughts.

MS Teleconference

Did anyone listen to the teleconference last night with Dr. Dean Wingerchuk of the Neurology Department at Mayo Clinic Scottsdale.

I had signed up for it and then just plain forgot about it until this morning. I am really perturbed with myself because he was going to discuss a lot of new treatments and future treatments.

Another day, another protein

http://www.ivanhoe.com/channels/p_channelstory.cfm?storyid=17989

Autoimmune Disease Cure may lie in Protein

Researchers at VIB, the Flanders Institute for Biotechnology, in connection with Ghent University and Katholieke Universiteit Leuven in Belgium, discovered a protein responsible for initiating this inflammation reaction. The protein, named MALT1, slices another protein called A20. In normal circumstances, A20 inhibits inflammation but when MALT1 is present, the inflammation reaction amplifies.

Scientists believe their findings will lead to the development of new medicines that counteract MALT1 ...

Contribution of relapses to disability

A big question in MS is the connection (if any) between relapses and disability (long term). Trials involving drugs which are very effective at stopping / reducing relapses (Campath, Mitoxantrone etc) should provide answers as to whether substantially reducing relapses has long term benefits (such as substantially slowing down disability / stopping the progression of disability). The following research examines the relationship of relapses and disability.

The researchers at NASA will be using repository samples to perform
pathogen and gene expression analyses in an effort to provide insight
into one of the potential causes of MS.

There are no drugs involved, only a blood draw and extensive
interview.

Criteria:

* Diagnosed MS within the ...

Lyon - video

Bob,

I'm glad to see that my threats to ban you from this site have resulted in a dramatic reduction in the number of your postings (reduction of c.30% - the equivalent of a CRAB drug).

I attach a video for you to watch. I don't have 12 minutes to spare so would be grateful for your summary of the main points. So when you get home tonights, no porn videos, no Dukes of Hazzard ...
