I don't want to toot my own horn.....

I do a cartoon for MS stuff. Hope you like it. I've gotten a good response so far and I agree that laughter is definitely the best medicine.

Precursor Schwann cells better for transplant.

Schwann cells are the myelin producing cells of the peripheral nervous system. Attempts have been made to transplant them into the central nervous system, but without much success. Using more immature Schwann cells, however, might be a way of overcoming some of the problems and raises an intriguing possibility: Schwann cells are not attacked during the MS disease process, so one day it might even be possible to remyelinate axons before the disease is cured, ...

RESULTS WILL VARY!

Hi to all,

I cannot believe that some people are looking for results like I have had while on Tovaxin. That these people think they may be on placebo just because they have not seen similar improvements. I don’t think these people ever read my timeline, and if they did, they only saw what they wanted to see.
