During the remyelinating process developed by MRF, will this "scarred or ...

More good news for mice

Natural, soy-based substance might help fight MS, Jefferson neuroscientists find 12 December 2006

A natural substance made from soy appears to have amazing restorative powers when given to animals with a multiple sclerosis (MS)-like disease.
Using an animal model of MS, neurologists at Jefferson Medical College found that giving doses of a substance called Bowmann-Birk Inhibitor Concentrate (BBIC) dramatically improved the animals’ ability to move and walk. The scientists, led by A. M. Rostami, ...

Serrapeptase and MS

Hi all.

I have recently come across an enzyme called serrapeptase. It is said that it has very strong anti-inflammatory properties. I have searched the site for more information on it but I have only found this thread containing just a couple of posts, dated almost two years ago.

http://www.thisisms.com/ftopic-821-previous.html

I was wondering whether somebody else has ever tried it on MS. It seems compatible with the CRABs and ...

Opexa Presentation

I felt that this was a good place to repost this information. The presentation, given by David McWilliams (Opexa CEO) on October 31, 2006 at the Towbin Life Sciences Investor Conference in New York, was freely accessible on the web. It has been converted to an easy to read and print pdf format. It's now available at http://www.msu.edu/~lyonro/Opexa06.pdf for the time being as Lyon has graciously offered to host ...

T-Cell Vacine & Tovaxin

A quick question to get this all started.

Does anyone know the specific differences between Tovaxin & TCV or as found in Dignan list " T-Cell Vaccination (Sheba Medical Center)". It would seem to me that Tovaxin is one companies brand/marketing name for something a number of researches are playing with.

To give another example this site is off a link lyon gave when talking specifically about tovaxin, but clearly it has noithing to ...

Lhermitte's sign

Hello to everyone, I have posted a couple of times but it has been quite a while, I have a reasonable question that I just cant help asking this forum (where people with some experience will hopefully show up). That fellow called Lhermitte's sign has been fooling around with me for a month now, and due to the fact that the symptoms (when I bend my neck) are getting exponentially worse (the tingling and all) ...

Measuring Axonal Damage

http://jnnp.bmj.com/cgi/content/full/63/6/736
Although conventional MRI is sensitive in detecting the lesions of multiple sclerosis, it disclosed neither demyelination nor axon loss itself. Proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) is a nuclear magnetic resonance technique which has the potential to detect axon loss non-invasively during life. The normal proton spectrum is dominated by N-acetyl derived groups (NA; the sum of N-acetyl aspartate (NAA) and N-acetylaspartylglutamate).7 The predominant component of the NA peak is NAA, an amino acid of ...

Working closely with neurologist Dr. Mark Freedman, he developed ...

Dopamine Drug Leads to New Neurons (in parkinson mice)

http://www.nih.gov/news/pr/jul2006/ninds-04.htm

In preliminary results, researchers have shown that a drug which mimics the effects of the nerve-signaling chemical dopamine causes new neurons to develop in the part of the brain where cells are lost in Parkinson's disease (PD). The drug also led to long-lasting recovery of function in an animal model of PD. The findings may lead to new ways of treating PD and other neurodegenerative diseases.


Animals treated for 8 weeks also developed almost ...
