further research on Amniotic stem cells

http://www.usatoday.com/tech/science/genetics/2007-01-07-stem-cells_x.htm?POE=TECISVA

The researchers at the Wake Forest University School of Medicine in Winston-Salem, N.C., were able to get the amniotic cells to differentiate into fat, bone, muscle, blood, nerve and liver cells.


One advantage is that these cells, unlike embryonic stem cells, don't form tumors when implanted into mice.
Isnt that just dandy for the mouse.

But even more important, because amniotic fluid is so easy to harvest, it would make it possible ...

Thought this was kind of interesting

Benefits of Supplements: Sorting Fact from Fiction

Jan. 7, 2007 — The news is filled with stories about the benefits of vitamins — this one helps prevent prostate cancer, that one helps curtail diabetes. But with 29,000 dietary supplement products on the market, it's hard to keep track of what helps whom — and how much it actually does for you.

Use of NAC with Antibiotics

I'm a little confused about the use of NAC with antibiotics for the treatment of progressive MS. Is the NAC used in place of Zithromax or doxycycline, or in addition to both drugs. I just started taking NAC and doxycycline, and would like to know if the Zithromax is mandatory. I also understand that Flagyl should be added as pulses later in the protocol, but I'll cross that bridge when I get there...

Online Pharmacies

Okay, antibiotics folks, are any of you using an online pharmacy to procure your medicine? I'm on doxycycline, and would like to add Zithromax, but cannot get a prescription for the latter.

I've heard several stories about some of these online pharmacies, people getting bootleg drugs and worse. Any recommendations for a reliable, safe online drug buying experience? I'm in the USA, and I know that location impacts which pharmacies you can use...

Loobie's second shot update

Hello all,

I still haven't the foggiest if this is real or placebo effect. However, I have a small update that I'm trying not to get too excited about. Although I have RRMS, everything about my progression has been a bit odd. Allow me to explain:

My first symptom was ON. It was (and is) not typical. My eyesight would only get bad when I exerted myself or got heated (it doesn't take much heat). ...

why do antibiotics and immonsupressing both work?

Hi,

as far as I understand if MS is caused by CP infection the disease should get much worse if the immunesystem is being supressed - do you agree on that?

As studies show chemotherapy agents like Mitoxantron or Cyclophosphamid and steroids are effective for reducing MS severety - maybe chemotherapy could even halting progression.

How can this be if these agents are heavyly supressing the immunesystem. So that the CP infection should become worse. ...
