compound based on resveratrol in trials

Interesting stuff about a compound being tested for type 1 diabetes based on resveratrol, found most notably in red wine. If you think insulin might be related to diseases other than diabetes (anyone? anyone?), then this looks promising.



Research published in Nature by Sirtris scientists is first demonstration in mammals that resveratrol, a sirtuin activator, can treat diseases of aging, such as diabetes. Sirtris Pharmaceuticals doses first diabetes patient in human clinical study.

Hiya

Im a newbie...I don't have MS but my sister does. We've lived together for about 6 months now cause she got a new job that was close to where I live, and I think she's been diagnosed about a year.

Does MS effect personality cause my sister can be happy and social one minute and then bite people's head's off 5 seconds later. It's got to the point where my room-mate has moved out cause ...

Damaged optic nerves

My wife Marg (MS for 35 years) has in the past 6 months had difficulty trying to read. The words become blurred, then better then blurred. Trying to read a newspaper becomes very tiresome for her. A trip to the optometrist 6 months ago and then a referral to the neuro ophthalmologist has resulted in a preliminary diagnosis of damaged optic nerves.

Marg has never had a problem with her eyes and never suffered from ...

Hi guys! Update from flora68 after 20 months on LDN

I just wanted to pop in and let you guys know how I'm doing and what's been added to my anti-MS regimen, FYI.

Basically I'm doing great! I really don't feel the MS at all. I still can't take excess heat and I doubt that that'll change, so hiding from the Texas heat all summer is tedious and sometimes isolating, but totally do-able. (Today in Austin it really feels like autumn, and I'm pumped!)

I ...

HIV/AIDS relationship or non-relationship with MS

Both are immune system issues. In HIV the immune system is getting wiped out and in MS it's functioning in strongly misdirected ways. When Googling around for info about white blood cells, you can't help but get a lot of links that are about AIDS/HIV.

I know these are different illnesses. But, has anyone one read any articles that discuss both in a compare contrast sort of way? And has anyone ever read of a ...

For those of you that have been keeping up with Gary and his "not MS' dx, it is official. He has NMO or Devic's Disease. After 10 yrs of dx of RRMS and then going into progressive stage, a brain and spine MRI of NO scars, along transverse myelitis, and ON, we walk into the DRs office to hear for the umpteenth time, I don't think you have MS. Since Gary has not had update ...
