New therapeutic target

Went to Cambridge today for a check-up. As I came out of the lift I bumped into Raven (Robin) - what a small world.

I have now met four posters on this site - Raven, Muu, Loriyas and Jaded. Can anyone beat that?

I never want to meet Lyon (because of the shiny shirts mainly) or Chris55 (who is a sandwich short of a picnic) - just thinking out loud.

I'd like to meet Jimmylegs ...

These, in turn, are responsible for the vast array of differences in physical characteristics between individuals.

The study, part of ...

Differential Diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis

In looking through one of the other MS sites I noticed the link that I've included below which goes into some valuable MS diagnosing information intended for the neurologist but is interesting to us laypeople.

In the past I've noticed people asking what other diseases can be mistaken with MS and how can they be differentiated? This paper does a good job of answering that question.

Cause of my MS?

I was talking to my brother and he reminded me of something I hadn't thought about for a while. In 2004 I got very sick. I could barely eat, swallow, or drink. I would break into a very cold sweat and sometimes collapse and almost pass out. I went to see a doctor who immediately sent me to the emergency room. They ran a gamut of blood tests and found nothing and thought perhaps it ...
