Watching the immune system at work

This looks very promising...

PET Imaging Reveals the Immune System at Work

For clinicians, the ability to look routinely inside the body and see — at the level of the cell — how it confronts disease is a distant dream.

But in a series of experiments with genetically engineered mice, a team of researchers from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) at the University of California Los Angeles has taken a key step toward realizing ...

Copaxone and neuro protection

The four CRAB drugs reduce, on average, relapses by 30%.

This research suggests that Copaxone also has a neuro-protective effect. Some time ago I posted a video featuring Dr Gavin Giovannoni of the Institute of Neurology in London. He ran through the CRAB drugs ...

New cause of demyelination?

This is a very interesting article on what some researchers have discovered in looking at the breakdown of myelin. It supports the thinking by some MS researchers that MS's original cause is not auto-immune and that the immune system is only reacting to the inflammation caused when myelin breaks down.
