Cedars-Sinai event - anyone go?

I wish I had known about this day about MS held at Cedars-Sinai (Los Angeles). I would certainly have gone.

I wonder if the 'celebrity guest' was Montel Williams.

Does anyone know about the MS program at Cedars?

The blood brain barrier and neurons

Although this article focuses on ALS, it's a good summary of the effect of a leaky BBB on the central nervous system. The gene for SOD 1 has also been implicated in MS. The review mentioned at the end of the article sounds interesting: has anyone had a chance to read it?

symptoms without inflammation?

Is it possible to have symptoms without inflammtion?

I asked about this in another thread. I just had an MRI last week which showed no new lesions or active lesions, no enhancement. but I have symptoms that are coming back from an 8 month relapse. I only had 1 month symptom free pretty much.

Australian study

Yet another example of sloppy journalism: an article light on facts and specifics, and which doesn't seem to know the difference between a study and the treatment.
