ED

Has anyone here studied the use of Viagra for ED and it's safety. We were at John's neurologist today and he mentioned he was having trouble in this area. Of course I've noted it but really wasn't going to be the one to mention it. To tell you the truth I vacated the room while they discussed it.

immunosuppressant or immunomodulator?

What is the difference in immunosuppressant and immunomodulator? I hope I am getting the spelling right on those. I did read that immunomodulators included interferon betas ( Avonex, Rebif, etc. and Copaxon) So what falls under immunosupressants? Would that be the chemo type drugs? Does Tysabri fall under this?

Quack warning!

I hadnt seen any references to this particular brand of quackery before and since it is potentially so dangerous I thought I'd post it. From Sunday Times 9 Oct 06

hey LC!

i have only just started having a look at LDN because someone was all stoked with it on an introduction string. what an interesting read. how very interesting that it is an immune system BOOSTER! wow. so anyway, deals with correcting issues with the opioid system (which also happens to be affected in cases of anorexia and bulemia... i'm thinking vegan history could also be implicated???). links to glucose preference and insulin production. this is ...

Neurobiology

This is difficult to understand (as a layman). I think they are saying that they are starting to understand more about this complex disease. I also get the impression that they are, at last, recognising that the auto-immune model is not a good one.

I know it's EAE, but I think we'll be hearing a lot more about T Reg cells in the future.

weird sensation...

Hi folks, I've been wondering about posting this for a while but reluctant to do so as it seems a little odd. For a couple of months I have have an odd sensation in my right leg, usually when i'm sitting. It feels like a strong pulse beat and only lasts for a second or so.
