MRTCs, Masking/Suppressing, and Some Thoughts

Hi to all,

I know I have said this about 100 times, but here it is again. The hope for Tovaxin is that it will halt the progression of MS. If the body is no longer under attack, it may be able to repair some of the damage and restore some lost abilities. This might be a good time to reread my first post on the thread “Results will vary”. http://www.thisisms.com/ftopict-4133.html ...

Fighting the superbug

Although most antibiotics today still work in the majority of people, how effective will such drugs be in the future? Bacteria as well as viruses and fungi have also shown to be resilient germs. What, then can be done? Can resistance be eliminated or at least contained?

Hello from Florida

I am a 32 year old female and have been reading posts on this site for over a year now, but never felt the need to become a member thinking that I would surpass diagnosis (since I have been having symptoms on and off for 4 years). I feel I am getting close to a diagnosis of something, and based on my DR's opinion, I won't be surprised to hear it is MS.

If you're clinically depressed, press 1 despairingly, but it won't help.
Nothing will.

If your manic, press 2 while jumping up and down and shouting.

Immune system destroys Unwanted synapses

An interesting new twist: as the brain grows and develops, connections either grow and are reinforced or fade away and die if they are no use. Except that this piece of research shows they don't just wither away or die through Apoptosis, they are actively killed by the immune system . If this process restarts, or never stops, neurodegeneration can result:

pondering diagnostic trends...

Groups such as the Pima Indians, which didn’t have much diabetes 75–80 years ago, now get it in large numbers. Not only are they being sold genetically engineered insulin as a palliative, but they’re also being told that their problem is in their genes (such as having an entirely hypothetical “thrifty gene”).
