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

Optical Coherence Tomography- interesting

Hi All,
I generally post things here after they have been discussed at great length but I thought this might interest some who have not heard of it. I initially read about this in Southwestern Medicine Magazine which is a publication from UT Southwestern. This link is from a Johns Hopkins study, I'm not sure who is really the leading research facility but no matter, give it a read.

Devics disease

I assume this subject has come up before but I thought it may be worth a re-visit. More than a few in my local MS chapter have been re-diagnosed with Devics and not MS. I had never even heard of this disease before. The Mayo clinic seems to be the front-runner in diagnosis and treatment of Devics. It may be worth some investigation for a lot of "diagnosed as MS" patients.

Cedars-Sinai event - anyone go?

I wish I had known about this day about MS held at Cedars-Sinai (Los Angeles). I would certainly have gone.

I wonder if the 'celebrity guest' was Montel Williams.

Does anyone know about the MS program at Cedars?

The blood brain barrier and neurons

Although this article focuses on ALS, it's a good summary of the effect of a leaky BBB on the central nervous system. The gene for SOD 1 has also been implicated in MS. The review mentioned at the end of the article sounds interesting: has anyone had a chance to read it?
