" UFO drugs"

This abstract ties together a number of common themes, and I particularly liked the idea that this reaction can resemble the effect of genetic mutations. Looks like the drugs are already being used for some diseases:

Canker Sores

I was wondering does anyone out there suffer with constant canker sores? I have been a sufferer for about 5 years now, around the length of time to when my doctors think that my MS first showed up. Can there be a link to canker sores and MS? If so is there any thing that I can do about it? Please help, they are driving me crazy!

environment-gene interaction

This strikes me as very helpful research. Hopefully there will be a lot more studies like it in the near future.

Activia

Just wanted to share some possibly positive info with everyone. First, I do NOT have MS but my daughter does. I DO have three "autoimmune" diseases. (After much reading/research, I do not believe in the autoimmune theory--not important however.)

I started taking Activia after reading about it and the fact that their claims are validated by the FDA. Activia balances the digestive tract where many problems can originate. It balances the good and bad bacteria. ...

Struggling

I am getting impatient again with the extension. I just posted in the general discussion about recent changes in my ability to void urine and am just absolutely maddenned with my constant downhill slide this year.

Help with a bladder issue

I need some help. We all know that there can be specific issues with our bladders. However, I have found out that there are (from what I can find) three discreet conditions that you can have with your bladder from MS.

One is OAB (Over Active Bladder) which, in layman's terms, means you have to pee all the time.

Two is flaccid bladder where your bladder over fills and does not generate sufficient contractions to ...

Expert Panel Consensus

Sounds very authoritative: "expert panel consensus". However, as is typical with all things MS, the consensus includes the old proviso, "more study required".
