IL-27 Anti-Inflammation Molecule Helps Fight MS-Like Disease 12 November 2007

Neurology researchers led by Abdolmohamad Rostami, M.D., Ph.D., professor and chair of the Department of Neurology at Jefferson Medical College of Thomas Jefferson University and the Jefferson Hospital for Neuroscience in Philadelphia, have found that the protein interkeukin-27 (IL-27) helped block the onset or reverse ...

Help

Hello,

I am 25, white female and I suspect that I may have MS. I had gone to see a doctor about 2 years ago when I experienced my first episode of non-severe, but hardly dismissable neurological symptoms. He ran some tests and then told me nothing is wrong and not to worry about it.
I forgot about it all until a few weeks ago when the same type of symptoms re-appeared.
At this point, ...

One for Wesley

Hey Wesley,
I saw this today and thought of you – I seem to recall a little while ago you were going to attend a conference where the subject of the Rho family of proteins was going to be discussed, obviously in relation to cancer. Did anything relevant to MS come up, or did I just miss it? Anyway, here's the abstract:

International experts are gathering in Cambridge this week to plan the next step in their fight to unravel the genetics of multiple sclerosis (MS).

The Genetics of MS workshop, part-funded by the UK's MS Society and the USA's National MS Society, brings together 50 neurologists and scientists from across the EU, the United States and Australia.

My ON eye is twitching

I've had my eyes twitch before, I think we all have, but it worries me that it's in my eye that was affected by optical neuritis. It sort of blurs a tiny bit more when it twitches as well but there is no pain, should I call my neurologist?

Stress factor?

Many people mention stress as a big factor in how their MS affects them. I trade emails with a woman who had her worst flare up when she was away on a business trip and she has tried to stay stress free since then, which has helped. I was just wondering how you try to stay un-stressed(for lack of a better word)? I'm a third year college student and things are really starting to ramp ...
