New study sheds light on pathogens trigger of immune system

http://www.eurekalert.org/pub_releases/ ... 071108.php

Berkeley -- Disease-causing microbes like the food-borne bacterium Listeria monocytogenes specialize in invading and replicating inside their animal hosts' own cells, making them particularly tricky to defeat. Now, a new study led by biologists at the University of California, Berkeley, has identified a molecular alarm system in which the intracellular pathogen sends out signals that kick the immune response into gear.

The findings, to be reported ...

Purified stem cells restore muscle in mice with MD

http://www.sciencecentric.com/news/arti ... q=08071411

By injecting purified stem cells isolated from adult skeletal muscle, researchers have shown they can restore healthy muscle and improve muscle function in mice with a form of muscular dystrophy. Those muscle-building stem cells were derived from a larger pool of so-called satellite cells that normally associate with mature muscle fibres and play a role in muscle growth and repair.

In addition to their contributions to ...

First day of campath

Just got home from my first campath infusion. I got to my doctors office at 9 and started the steroid drip. Aside from a really bad taste in my mouth it was fine. The campath started and it was going great until about halfway through the bag. A powerful headache came out of nowhere and I got a bad case of the chills and my legs and lower back ached. My doctor gave some meds ...

Dr. Miller

Hi, it's Marlene. My boyfriend, Scott, was taking LDN last year. Did pretty well. He stopped because of insurance reasons. He wants to start again but we can't get in touch with Dr. Edwin Miller. Can anyone tell us if he's still in practice???

Thanks.

traditional chinese medicine for MS

Hi guys, I'm from the Gold Coast, Australia, and have found your views on alternative treatment for MS most interesting, its great to see so many with an other than medical view to healing this problem.

PML brain infection with the drug Cellcept

This news has been circulating for a few months but thought I would post for all to see. Some neurologists are using Cellcept as off label treatment for MS. For those being offered Cellcept as an MS treatment you should be aware that there were 10 confirmed and 7 possible cases of PML with the use of this drug. This is the deadly brain infection that the 3 Tysabri users caught and died from. The ...

avoiding IPIRs with copaxone

I have mostly been a lurker on this board, but I do post now and then. I have been on copaxone for 13 months now, and just got the results of my 1 year brain MRI. The results are favorable (some improvement, no new lesions or Gd enhancing lesions) and my neurological exam was improved somewhat from before I started copaxone. Oh, and no relapses since starting :) ...

Improved Diagnosis of MS with MEG

I am a participant in a research study sponsored by Orasi Medical, Inc. Title of the study is: "Improved Diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis using Magnetoencephalography (MEG) and the Synchronous Neural Interaction" The machine used looks kind of like one of the old conical shaped hair dryers. You lie down and the machine is moved to the top of your head. It takes about five minutes. A whole lot easier than a brain MRI! The machine ...

Autopsy

Last September, after my wife Marg passed away, I had asked the hospital to conduct an autopsy. She had MS for 36 years and I wanted to learn how extensive the disease had progressed and what caused her death. It took 8 months before all the information was available and I discussed these findings with Marg's neurologist and also got an opinion from another person involved in MS research.

As for the cause of death....sepsis ...
