compound based on resveratrol in trials

Damaged optic nerves

My wife Marg (MS for 35 years) has in the past 6 months had difficulty trying to read. The words become blurred, then better then blurred. Trying to read a newspaper becomes very tiresome for her.

HIV/AIDS relationship or non-relationship with MS

Both are immune system issues. In HIV the immune system is getting wiped out and in MS it's functioning in strongly misdirected ways. When Googling around for info about white blood cells, you can't help but get a lot of links that are about AIDS/HIV.

I know these are different illnesses. But, has anyone one read any articles that discuss both in a compare contrast sort of way? And has anyone ever read of a ...

It Should Work. It Just Doesn't.

Posted by Derek

The late-stage clinical failure of a small company/big company drug partnership story gets told over and over, and today it was the turn of Renovis and AstraZeneca. Renovis had come up with a candidate (NXY-059) for post-stroke therapy that targeted free-radical oxidative damage. Initial clinical ...
