Cause of nerve fiber damage in multiple sclerosis identified

UC Irvine -- Researchers have identified how the body's own immune system contributes to the nerve fiber damage caused by multiple sclerosis, a finding that can potentially aid earlier diagnosis and improved treatment for this chronic disease.

The study reveals how immune system B-cells damage axons during MS attacks by inhibiting energy production in these nerve fiber cells, ultimately ...

MND

This story is about stem cells and MND.

My father's friend had MND and his father's neuro told him that Stephen Hawking had something different. I think Hawking has had MND for 30+ years which defies the usual 2-5 years life expectancy.

New to the antibiotic theory..sorta

I had heard of the theories of mycoplasma, Cpn, etc being a cause for MS. but to be honest I had kind of blown it off because I figured it it was true there would be more talk about it...internet searches (Google) have only led me to info from way back in 1999 with the doc at Vanderbilt (siriam?). I actually go to Dr. Moses at the MS clinic at Vandy and he has never ...

Stuck Sticky

Hi Arron, Thanks for all the hard work. As one who frequents the Antibiotics forum, I have a suggestion. The Minocycline "Sticky" appears dead and rather out of touch with the currently predominant subject matter of that forum which is combined antibiotic protocols, namely the Wheldon and Vanderbilt protocols. How about a new (or additional) "Sticky" for the Antibiotics forum regarding these CAPs?

Advantages of PPMS and SPMS over RRMS

No, I haven't lost my mind. Having observed the herxheimer reactions of my husband who is on the Wheldon protocol, the thought came to me of a certain advantage he and others with progressive forms of MS "enjoy" as compared to protocolers with RRMS. Since, for progressive MSers, life is one long exacerbation with the intensity of symptoms varying from one day to the next, the temporary worsening of symptoms due to herxing is not ...
