Measuring Axonal Damage

http://jnnp.bmj.com/cgi/content/full/63/6/736
Although conventional MRI is sensitive in detecting the lesions of multiple sclerosis, it disclosed neither demyelination nor axon loss itself. Proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) is a nuclear magnetic resonance technique which has the potential to detect axon loss non-invasively during life. The normal proton spectrum is dominated by N-acetyl derived groups (NA; the sum of N-acetyl aspartate (NAA) and N-acetylaspartylglutamate).7 The predominant component of the NA peak is NAA, an amino acid of ...

Dopamine Drug Leads to New Neurons (in parkinson mice)

http://www.nih.gov/news/pr/jul2006/ninds-04.htm

In preliminary results, researchers have shown that a drug which mimics the effects of the nerve-signaling chemical dopamine causes new neurons to develop in the part of the brain where cells are lost in Parkinson's disease (PD). The drug also led to long-lasting recovery of function in an animal model of PD. The findings may lead to new ways of treating PD and other neurodegenerative diseases.


Animals treated for 8 weeks also developed almost ...

Does stem cell treatment cause tumours?

I live in Cyprus with my mother who has MS (as does her brother) and we've just been told the Institute of Neurology will not go ahead and do the treatment because it causes tumours. Does anyone have any information about this and if it is true? We are not thinking of going to Holland to do the treatment.

Fampridine SR

Obviously the regulators weren't too impressed with the data from the Phase III trial results - which is disappointing.

Hormones and MS

This is a question for anyone who may know the answer or for anyone who may even want to hazard a guess. Remember the studies where estriol may be of benefit to MS? Well, what do you think about the opposite? What if the body were depleted of estrogen? What do you think would happen to a person's MS? Do you think it would worsen? Even men have small amounts of estrogen in their bodies. ...
