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.

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:
