I was diagnosed with RRMS in 9/02...have been on Betaseron (stopped working) then Copaxone and now Rebif....after 3 months of Rebif now I apparently have some sort of arthritis (still getting workup to see what) My rheumatologist says that the interferons can induce autoimmune processes...he didn't say that I shouldn't take them....guess it's just one of the risks.....just didn't really realize it. I had a history of a type of arthritis that was probably similar ...

Cause of nerve fiber damage in multiple sclerosis identified

UC Irvine -- Researchers have identified how the body's own immune system contributes to the nerve fiber damage caused by multiple sclerosis, a finding that can potentially aid earlier diagnosis and improved treatment for this chronic disease.

The study reveals how immune system B-cells damage axons during MS attacks by inhibiting energy production in these nerve fiber cells, ultimately ...

Stuck Sticky

Hi Arron, Thanks for all the hard work. As one who frequents the Antibiotics forum, I have a suggestion. The Minocycline "Sticky" appears dead and rather out of touch with the currently predominant subject matter of that forum which is combined antibiotic protocols, namely the Wheldon and Vanderbilt protocols.

Growth process of neurons

Any new findings about neurons / axons should be helpful.



Most important actors in the growth process of neurons identified

Leuven, Belgium -- Defects in the growth process of our neurons often underlie brain or nerve diseases, such as Alzheimer's disease or multiple sclerosis. Scientists from the Flanders Interuniversity Institute for Biotechnology (VIB) connected to the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, led by Bassem Hassan, have achieved a major step in unraveling the growth process of axons, ...
