Phentermine and Brain Damage

Ok, here I go again... A week before I ended up in the hospital for MS (June 05), I had been taking a weight loss drug called Phentermine. It was very effective. I stopped taking abruptly because I thought its effectiveness was wearing off and I was tired of the head-ache it was giving me every night when I "came down" off of this drug. Next week: I am in the hospital. I told my ...

Question about Tovaxin

I have a question about Tovaxin since I am thinking about participating in the clinical trial. I have seen that some people here are participating in the clinical trial and must have had a chance to have their questions answered. I don't know much about the immune system and I was wondering if it was possible in theory for the Tovaxin vaccine to not only destroy myelin reactive T-cell but to destroy all T-cell in ...

Movies reveal that the process of insulating nerves is surprisingly dynamic
17.11.2006

Much like the electrical wiring in your house, the nerves in your body need to be completely covered by a layer of insulation to work properly.
Instead of red, white or black plastic, however, the wiring in the nervous system is protected by layers of an insulating protein called myelin. These layers increase the speed that nerve impulses travel throughout the brain ...

Cerebral Spinal Fluid Data

What is the significance of Glucose in CSF testing? Does anyone know? What about Protein? In June '05, when they took a sample of my CSF, the results were: CSF, GLUCOSE = 75; Reference Range=40-70

CSF, PROTEIN=42.6; Reference Range=15.0-40.0


Just curious if anyone knows anything about that?

Interesting articles

I like the NMSS as I have said before. Here are some articles from their current magazine. I don't know who Richard Cohen is - but his 87 year old father has MS which must give us hope for a reasonably long life - given the better treatments in the pipeline. And he is the third generation in his family to get MS which suggests to me that genes may play more of a role ...

Genes

This site was a serious site until that joker and attention seeker Lyon joined. I had lunch with Arron today and we feel that an official warning is needed. Lyon - you can post about worms and MS but no more postings about viagra, beavers or chocolate. HarryZ was very lonely in the period in which I banned him from posting - he claims that I apologised to him and begged him to come back ...

Gamma Globulin ...Any Connection?

:( I was given Gamma Globulin as a child to fight off a childhood illness because I got it from my sister & got deathly sick...I was born in 1952 & I think this was something new back then...Could this be where the MS comes from... No one in the family had it..?

new way to image neurons

Interesting research that could have MS implications down the road.



Watching the Insides of a Cell

MIT Technology Review -- Researchers at MIT's George R. Harrison Spectroscopy Lab have detected tiny twitches and vibrations in the membranes of individual cells and neurons by using a powerful and noninvasive imaging technique. Down the line, Michael Feld, director of the lab, hopes to use the technique to create three-dimensional images, illuminating even finer activities within living cells. ...
