Peptide which can cause autoimmunity

This article doesn't mention MS, and its relevance depends on whether you stand by the "autoimmune" theory or not, but the identification of a key part of the immune response to tissue damage sounds as if it might be important. What triggers it in the first place, and why it remains active for too long, are yet to be answered, but the fact that LL 37 is released by epithelial cells is intriguing:

Genetic Predisposition

I know I brought this subject up about a year ago but there is no doubt that we have all learned a lot in the time since.

The assumption of genetic predisposition is one of the earliest and longest held assumptions in the history of modern MS research.

The assumption of genetic predisposition was/is based on incidence data showing that MS predominantly, at that time almost exclusively, affected light skinned caucasians, seemingly regardless of location ...

Scared Daughter

Hi, I'm new here, but not to MS.

My mom was diagnosed when I was 8 years old, and I'm 25 now. She's had relapsing remitting for years, she could walk, but tired easily and required a cane.

She tried Avonex for a while, and it didn't do too much, so she went on Copaxone, and it did wonders, she got much stronger. She still had MS symptoms when the weather got very hot, or ...

More T-reg cells not necessarily better

Boosting the number of regulatory T cells sounds like a good idea because it calms down excessive immune activity directed against the body's own tissue. However, this research suggests that because T-reg cells also recognise foreign invaders like viruses and bacteria, boosting their numbers could calm down the response to these things as well, which would be unwelcome,

I just started the Wheldon protocol on September 2nd. I started with 2X100mg of doxy for one week (morning and evening) and did not have major reactions for the first five days. At the end of the frist week, I noticed increased brain fog and difficulty forming thoughts. On the 7th day, I took the first dose of azithro, at which point I had a worsening in many of my pre-existing symptoms, mainly, in my ...

gene therapy without viruses

Sounds promising for all types of gene therapy, no specific mention of MS.

Gene Therapy without Viruses: A new, highly effective polymer may make gene therapy safer.

Katherine Bourzac - Technology Review - The promise of gene therapy has long been held up by the lack of a safe and effective way to insert the desired therapeutic genes into the right cells. To solve that problem, MIT researchers have developed a new polymer for gene ...
