Getting On Your Nerves ... And Repairing Them 16 February 2007

In a study to be published in the March 2007 issue of The FASEB Journal, scientists from East Carolina University report that a key molecular mechanism, RNA interference (RNAi), plays a role in the regeneration and repair of periphery nerves, which are the nerves located outside of the brain and spinal column. This research may lead to new therapies that manipulate RNAi to ...

Luck ran out

So I almost made it two years since my CIS. For about a week now I've had a mild burning sensation on my skin from the top of my right foot up to about my knee, but it is only on the right side of my right leg. It then also affects my right cheek on my buttocks, and that is it. It is not numb to the touch, I can pinch or scratch and ...

Predicting atrophy

Hi all,

I keep hearing about 'underlying' or 'insidious' disease activity, which occurs continuously, (even in RRMS). In this editorial, they almost admit to being distracted by T1 and T2 lesions at the expense of awareness of total brain atrophy, but it seems that measuring volume and T2 load at diagnosis can predict later volume loss,

Building a computer model of the cerebrum

Technology keeps charging along...



Building the Cortex in Silicon

Feb 12/07 -- MIT Technology Review -- Models of the brain built from specially designed computer chips could reveal the secrets of our cerebrum.

An ambitious project to model the cerebral cortex in silicon is under way at Stanford. The man-made brain could help scientists understand how the most recently evolved part of our brain performs its complex computational feats, allowing us to understand language, recognize ...

Novartis shares genome info

Interesting article about Novartis' recent diabetes genome project and deciding to make the information freely available. I like this trend. It seems that science could progress so much faster if everybody shared findings, although I know it's not possible in every case.



Biology Goes Open Source

Feb 12/07 -- Forbes -- Some of the world's biggest drug companies are finding that their genetic research is worth more to them if they give it away.

Novartis, ...

Elevated Liver Enzymes

Hi all, my partner who is currently on Betaseron has just found out she has very elevated liver enzymes. She's been on Betaseron for two months. She's been on Rebif and Avonex before, and discontinued both of them due to liver enzymes.

She tried Copaxone, but she had an allergic reaction 2 months into it (definitely an allergic reaction, not the crazy post injection episode).

We'd both really like for her to stay on Betaseron ...
