Reg-T-cells may not be the culprit

Regulatory immune cells may not be defective in Multiple Sclerosis
05 September 2008

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic inflammatory disease that causes neurodegeneration, resulting in numerous physical and mental disabilities. It is thought to be caused by out of control immune cells that attack the proteins that make up the protective sheath in which nerve cells are encased.

In addition, it has been reported that a subset of immune cells known as Tregs ...

Alright! Alright! Enough already.

I am NOT a troll. I'm just to thick-headed to understand this jargon filled article.


Thanks.

some interesting research

Here are links to a couple of interesting findings that could have implications for MS:


Do 68 molecules hold the key to understanding disease?
Why is it that the origins of many serious diseases remain a mystery? In considering that question, a scientist at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine has come up with a unified molecular view of the indivisible unit of life, the cell, which may provide an answer.

Steve's Updated Regimen

It's been a long time since posting here on Steve's treatment regimen. Steve has secondary progressive MS, and after he got worse on Rebif, we looked for a different direction in treatment. I found the Vanderbilt long term combined antibiotic protocol for the treatment of chronic Chlamydia pneumoniae infection, Steve tested positive for chronic infection, and he has been taking antibiotics ever since. Very early this year, we learned that Steve also has Lyme Disease ...

Stem Cell Drug Hopes
Posted on: Wednesday, 3 September 2008, 18:00 CDT

SCIENTISTS have designed stem cell tools to aid the development of drugs to fight brain disorders like Alzheimer's and Parkinson's.

The breakthrough was announced today by a team of scientists from Durham University and the North East England Stem Cell Institute (NESCI).

They have developed and tested two synthetic molecules which can be used to coax stem cells into transforming into other forms ...

New day New surprise.

Another new symptom today. Lump in the throat. I'll head downstairs in a minute to take mag. I wanted to read here first. I've been careless about taking the supplements lately.
I've added quite a few new symptoms in the last few months. Double vision (gone for now), itchy-pin-pricks, butt cramps (not nice to wake up to, but gone for now), and now the lump in my throat. When you add these to the issues ...
