Bad Case

Hi everybody, my mom was diagnosed about two months ago and since then has not started any medication.

Teaching immune cells

This looks like some interesting new research...

Implant raises cellular army to attack cancer

Implants that sit in the body and reprogram a person's immune cells could be used to treat a range of infectious diseases and even cancer. In a trial on mice with an aggressive melanoma that usually kills within 25 days, the new treatment saved 90% of the group.

Genetic variant in women...

...associated with late Alzheimer's prevalence in women.

The real deal MS diagnosis facts

This article is rather interesting, disturbing and encouraging.

So much pain and anxiety could be spared if more doctors were direct. It's worth the money, energy and time to seek out MS expert, not a neurologist who may claim to be an expert, as there is a distinction.
