Lamotrigine

Has anyone tried or thought of trying Lamotrigine? It's in trials at present for MS for neuro-protection etc., but is a drug normally taken for epilepsy and bi-polar.

The score: HERV 1 - HHV6 0

It's looking more and more to me like HHV6 either plays nothing more than a triggering role in MS, or is a red herring.



Brains and peripheral blood mononuclear cells of multiple sclerosis (MS) patients hyperexpress MS-associated retrovirus/HERV-W endogenous retrovirus, but not Human herpesvirus 6.

Anyone - T-Cell Vaccination (Sheba Medical Center) trial?

We have seen that we have quite a few people here that are in the Phase IIb Tovaxin Trial, but I haven't read of anyone who is in the Phase III "T-Cell Vaccination (Sheba Medical Center)".

I would expect that the Phase III trial would be bigger, and therefore there would be more of us in it. Anyone?

Hi. My name is Terri. I am 46 and was diagnosed in June.
I am having a hard time accepting this. I spend so much time wondering what caused this.

The Risk Pool, Richard Russo

Well I must put my hand up and admit that I didnt get through this book! I've been trying to think why not. Of the bits I've read, about a third, I enjoyed Richard Russo's style of writng quite gentle and relaxed; I found the subject matter interesting and from a perspective and way of life (small town provincial) I had never thought about before. There is some humour, not side-splitting stuff but some passages ...

Pain neuron malfunction, diabetes and autoimmunity

Hi all.

I have come across this story:

http://www.canada.com/nationalpost/news ... =63970&p=1

According to the researchers, pain neuron malfunction seems to be the cause of type I diabetes. Injecting a substance correcting the problem cured diabetes in mice within a night! The authors suggest that the same mechanism could be the cause of type II diabetes, Crohn's and MS.

Well, it is quite surprising that a study links pain neurotransmitters, ...

Stem cells in hair follicles

Adult Stem Cells Found in Hair Follicles

FRIDAY, Dec. 15 (HealthDay News) -- Adult stem cells found in the bulge of hair follicles may provide an alternative to embryonic stem cells, say researchers at the Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee.

Like embryonic stem cells, these epidermal neural crest stem cells have a high degree of plasticity, can be isolated at high levels of purity, and can be expanded in culture, the researchers said.

And, ...
