His levels were 10x normal. Usually these high numbers signal infertility and testicular failure.

But Jeff's testosterone ...

Interesting drug in Alzheimer's trials

I think this drug is interesting because it is an anti-allergy pill that's been approved in Russia for around 20 years, it is neuroprotective and entering phase 3 trials in alzheimer's.


From Medivation's (the sponsor company) website:

Dimebon is an orally-available, small molecule that has been shown to inhibit brain cell death in preclinical models relevant to Alzheimer’s disease and Huntington’s disease, making it a potential treatment for these and other neurodegenerative diseases. Based on ...

RRMS dx received

I finally (after more messing around than I can be bothered to type) got an MS dx today. Am feeling remarkably cheerful despite this because I finally have some answers.

Pork Plant update

Call me crazy...but I'm hoping that this situation will lead to further understanding of MS. Still more pork plant workers are contracting this brand new type of inflammatory neuropathy. A unique pattern of antibodies has been found in all the workers.

New details on the neurological illness that has affected workers at several pork processing plants will be presented at the American Academy of Neurology’s 60th ...
