Cerebrovascular Reactivity

Chronically reduced Cerebrovascular Reactivity (CVR) is suspected to be the cause of neurodegeneration in MS, due to a chronic overabundance of NO, which habituates the blood vessels to being continuously expanded. The excess of NO is thought to be the result of inflammation making immune cells to release iNOS, which results in catalysis of NO. The NO overload could also result in energy loss. It may be competing with O2 absorption by mitochondria, with the ...

A new mouse model for Multiple Sclerosis fatigue?

Researchers presented a new mouse model for fatigue at the 2014 Society for Neuroscience meeting. The model is the first of its kind and works by manipulating the pro-inflammatory cytokine interleukin-1β.

There’s a new animal model coming down the pike that may be of use to multiple sclerosis researchers. At the Society for Neuroscience (SfN) annual meeting in Washington, D.C., researchers announced that they have developed a new mouse model for fatigue. This is the ...

Could alcohol reduce the risk of getting MS?

A study by Dr. Anna Karin Hedström and a team of researchers from Sweden's Karolinska Intstitute have discovered a possible link between alcohol consumption and a reduction in the risk of having multiple sclerosis, the degenerative disease of the central nervous system.

According to the abstract of the study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, the researchers' goal was to “investigate the possible association of alcohol consumption with the risk of developing ...
