Alpha Lipoic Acid

I have mislaid a link taking one to a cheap provider of alpha lipoic acid. I note that this supplement is said to inhibit the expression of ICAM and VCAM in CNS endothelial cells. These assist the migration of T cells across the bbb. I think. Anyway I'm planning on increasing the quantity of alpha lipoic acid to several grams a day but Solgar is a total rip off.

Combined R-alpha-lipoic acid and acetyl-L-carnitine exerts efficient preventative effects in a cellular model of Parkinson's disease.

Lipoic acid stimulates cAMP production via the EP2 and EP4 prostanoid receptors and inhibits IFN gamma synthesis and cellular cytotoxicity in NK cells. J Neuroimmunol. 2008 Aug 13;199(1-2):46-55.

Haptens can trigger MS

I am author of a poster about environmental and genetic factors which can trigger MS. This poster is on my: http://www.haptens.republika.pl/images/poster.jpg
This poster had number P15 and was presented at International Conference "Advances in Clinical Neuroimmunology", which took place on 7-8 December 2007 in Poznan, Poland. I have evidence that MS is relatively easy to predict, prevent and arrest.
