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

Google brain!

Chlorinative stress

This abstract doesn't directly mention MS, but it did come up in a search about MS. I found the mention of desferrioxamine intriguing because this is a substance which chelates both aluminium and iron from the body tissues so that you excrete them in urine and faeces. Wasn't there some research recently which found high levels of aluminium in the urine of people with RRMS, and high levels of iron in the urine of people ...

Bullous Pemphigoid

No, I've never heard of it either, but look at the drugs listed in the second link--curious, but I suppose treatments are bound to overlap,

Different perspective on cause of MS

Here's a researcher after the hearts and minds of ThisIsMS. I've never heard of this way of looking at MS before, and I'm not convinced, but it's good that some researchers are being more creative.

Solumedrol

I need to understand this whole solumedrol thing. I am having my first major exacerbation in almost 5 years since my diagnosis. I realize how lucky I am that I have not had to have Solumedrol since thie first go round. I blame it on my being not so lucky as to having to have had 3 surgeries in 2006, with the last being this past November. I believe that is what triggered this flare. ...

Australian Fellowship

It's always good to hear about new projects starting up in MS research, even if they are only just beginning the fund raising. If MS costs Australia $600 million a year, I can't understand why governments don't pump more money into some of the avenues of research which look promising, but which don't appeal to the big companies because they see little or no profit. Even if you only look at the financial cost, and ...
