LDN newbie

Hi Managed to get a prescription from my Doctor for LDN and will hopefully start sometime next week. Iam starting on 3mg liquid format.

Thought this was going to be mission impossible to obtain but fingers crossed no problems so far.
First I asked my Neuro about LDN and he stated that there is no evidence or findings of its treatment and also mentioned that it is only available in 50mg tablets, but had no ...

Molecular Mimicry-thanks, NHE

Thanks for the explanation, NHE.

In my year of studying, I had not read such a clear description of this process. It must be frustrating for the elders on ThisisMS to have to continually answer newbie questions. I appreciate your time and patience and repetition.

The real irony in all of this is that my husband is actually OK with his diagnosis, and is dealing with it. He's ...

Scaffold for stem cells

Stem cell scaffolding repairs nerves 31 January 2008

A Monash University PhD student has developed a new technique that could revolutionise stem cell treatment for Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson's disease and spinal cord injuries.

David Nisbet from Monash University's Department of Materials Engineering has used existing polymer-based biodegradable fibres, 100 times smaller than a human hair, and re-engineered them to create a unique 3-D scaffold that could potentially allow stem cells to repair damaged nerves in ...

Franks WalkAid log

Yesterday I got a visit from a salesman of a swiss medical device company that is going to bring WalkAid to the german market.
The company is currently making its fist experiences with WalkAid in MS and so I'm allowed to noncommittaly try WalkAid for two or three month.

My first impression when we tried to configure the device was that it does work in lifting my foot up- and outwards but it takes the ...

I just want to pee

As I am on Rebif, I have blood work done every three months to monitor liver and thyroid functions. Once a year the Dr. throws in all the other good stuff as well - cholesterol, glucose, fructose, oil levels and PSA.

Well, in Dec. I get a call from the Dr.'s office - my PSA level is up. He refers me to a urologist for further investigation.

So Monday of this week I wake up ...

Stem cell lines created without destroying embryo
In a bid to sidestep the ethical debate over the use of human embryos in medical research, scientists have developed a way to derive viable stem cell lines without harming the embryo.

They did so by extracting a single cell from the embryo — as in vitro fertilization clinics do when they test for genetic defects and introducing a common molecule called laminin to keep it in a stem cell, or pluripotent, state.

Subsequent development ...
