New ‘pre-HSCT’ treatment could make stem cell transplants safer

Scientists at Stanford University School of Medicine have developed a method for stem cell transplants that may do away with the need for prior systematic treatment with chemotherapy or radiotherapy.

MS symptoms due to chiropractic? Your opinions

In the middle of June I experienced a whiplash type of injury after having my head jerked around a bit (not car accident). I thought I had slept wrong and iced my neck and put heat for a week. I also found it difficult to hold my head up. After a week I felt like I needed my neck popped. I had been to a chiropractor before following a partial dislocation of a vertebrae 3 ...

requesting anti-MOG subforum

Given that some MS patients are anti-MOG positive, it could be useful to create a subforum for this new entity, which includes cases of optic neuritis and ADEM, but also cases of MS, for publishing research, therapies and response to interventions like dietary treatment.

Just as support for the request:

Autoantibodies to MOG in a distinct subgroup of adult multiple sclerosis

Granted first patent to diagnose MS pattern

Though it is known since 2008 that MS patterns can be discriminated by the presence of antibody signatures, it was a research subject until now.

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2596207/

Now the first patent has been granted (February 2016). It is important because pattern II is "dramatically responsive" to plasmapheresis (and probably also to specific medication) while other patterns are not.

This is the patent
