Stem cell finding could help fight autoimmune disease
Posted by the Asbury Park Press on 03/19/07

HEALTHDAY

In a finding that could help researchers better understand autoimmune disease,
scientists say a process called autophagy prompts dying embryonic stem cells to send out "eat me" and "come and get me" signals to ensure their elimination by healthy cells.

"Our findings also suggest that defects in autophagy might trigger autoimmune
diseases and, ...

Clustering of autoimmune diseases

I find it dissapointing that researchers don't find clustering of these diseases as significant as I do, but this article shows that there is at least some consideration of the matter.

Aldehyde poisoning

Okaaay....I think this abstract is saying that failure to eliminate, and therefore the build-up of, Aldehyde could lead to the 'toxic environment' that destroys tissue:

Finding the positives of MS

They call it "benefit finding", but I just think of it as looking on the bright side: I met my best friend while we were both in neurological rehab, (he had a terrible car-crash), and we were talking about it the other day -- I can't be glad that I have MS, but I know that, come that wonderful day when all this is over, I will be glad I had it. It's made me ...

Johns Eyes

As some here will know I've been trying supplement approach to fix John's eye affected by ON in 1998. The good part is something is happening and he is getting flashes of clarity which have been absent sine 1998. He has also been able to see color again in the past several months. The bad part is I can't tell you which supplement if any are responsible. What a SUCK ASS way to report findings ...

Lp results are in...

Well of course it's positive.

It's not really a shock but i wish the diagnosis was something else.

The neuro has suggested maybe starting on Avonex and i will be seeing him again in May so he will prescribe it then. That will give me time to stop breastfeeding.

Has anyone had an ok experience with Avonex?

Thanks

Elly
