Myelin and Netrin-1

Multiple Sclerosis: In The War Against Diseases, Nerve Cells Need Their ArmorScienceDaily (Nov. 12, 2008) — In a new study, researchers at the Montreal Neurological Institute (MNI), McGill University, and the Université de Montréal have discovered an essential mechanism for the maintenance of the normal structure of myelin, the protective covering that insulates and supports nerve cells (neurons).

Appointment with endocrinologist

Hi Everyone,

A few months ago i posted because my vit D level was low and my neuro referred me to see an endocrinologist.

Well that appointment was this morning.

He basically wants me to continue taking 1000iu Vit d but he has ordered me another blood test just to see if that has worked to increase the level.
He says that taking the supplement is just as good as getting it from the sun. ...

Glutamate

Nerispirdine?

It's a double-blind placebo controlled study but I don't know what phase it's in. There are four possible doses:
1. Placebo
2. 50 mg
3. 100 mg
4. 200 mg ...

Another one from Ohio

Hi~

Newly diagnosed on 10/08 and just getting over the initial shock...

I have just started Copaxone 4 days ago.

Looking forward to getting to know all of you.

Loobie, I see you are from Dayton. I am moving there this July to finish my clinical years and to do my residency at Kettering/Grandview. Never been there before; I'll have to find out from you the good places to live!

terrified of tysabri...what to do?

Hi...my husband was diagnosed with MS about 2 years ago. He tried Rebif and had horrible side effects. He switched to Avonex and did better, but it wasn't clear what was worse: the disease or the treatments. His doctor told us about Tysabri and told us to think about it. He's been off all meds for 3 months and is doing so well. He's like a new man...every now and then his leg gets weak, ...
