No detail on what this prevention strategy might include - I'm not ...

Beware of the "Marshall Protocol" of which you can find out more in the Antibiotics forum, so I won't repeat it here.

can someone help translate this into English?

I can recognize when I am over my head! Please help me understand this:

Antibodies against OspA epitopes of Borrelia burgdorferi cross-react with neural tissue

http://www.sciencedirect.com/science?_o ... 9ebac2011e

Neurological sequela of chronic Lyme disease include
encephalopathy, myelopathy and peripheral neuropathy.
These have generally been attributed to either persistent infection
or pathogen-induced autoimmunity. In this study, we investigated
the presence of cross-reactive human neural epitopes that share
amino acid sequences ...

MS and siblings

Dear all,

Another piece of research attached. This time they conclude that the risk of ms is reduced if you have lots of younger siblings.

Again, one has to wonder what use this is to those who have ms. Given other research findings you really don't want to be a female, born in May and a single child! (although I am male, born in March and have a twin sister)

HAVING lots of younger ...

Trial funding

Shall we put our heads together and brainstorm ways that funding can be found for trials that are meaningful to the MS community but not necessarily for the big pharma companies?

What about trials for antibiotics, LDN, and so many others? Yes, I ...
