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%.

However, it is now recognised that damage to axons is the real problem leading to permanent disability. In addition to treatments that reduce relapses, neuro-protective agents are required to protect axons.

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 ...

viruses

These two research papers illustrate everything that is wrong with MS research. They examine different viruses but I can't understand why they did it or what they found. EBV seems to crop up again and again as a possible cause / trigger for MS. But these researchers never arrive at any clear conclusions - words such as 'suggest' etc etc - which then allows another researcher to have another look at a later date and ...

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.

So . . . anybody here work from home?

Hi,

It's been a long time since I last posted, but since I am busy trying to find work at home jobs, I was wondering if anyone else is doing the same? I have found plenty of info on the subject and would be happy to share and discuss it all, if anyone else is curious.

Anyone else looking, or wondering about home based work? It sure comes in handy when MS makes it difficult ...

wonder.i.am

Hi,

I'm sorry for using this place for promoting my website, but I really think you should see this.

Because what do you do when you're down with MS?
You try to make the best out of it.
And then you put all your discoveries and inventions on a site...

Hope to give you ideas!

Greetings, Rufus

What's New in the Immunosuppression Pipeline?

Not sure how old this article is but it is interesting

What's New in the Immunosuppression Pipeline?
Disclosures

Ron Shapiro, MD
Minimizing Toxicity, Maximizing Efficacy: The Search Continues
The side effects associated with conventional immunosuppression have driven the search for new agents that minimize toxicities and maximize immunosuppressive efficacy. The studies reported in this session included a variety of agents, many of which remain investigational.
