Genes

The title of this research paper looked very promising but didn't quite deliver what I was expecting. I know that they (MS researchers) are getting nearer to identifying the genes that make one susceptible - but even if they do identify them can anything be done about it?

So that the new people can avoid any pitfalls those experienced may have encountered.

I am trying to contact as many (SCTers) as possible to ...

West Wing Worthwhile?

Hopefully, this is the correct section for such an enquiry.

The TV show, West Wing (Series 4) has just commenced in Australia. In the tv preview it stated that the President is grappling with 'coming out' about his MS, so I watched the first two episodes. However, there wasn't much focus on his MS, except for some reference to short-term memory loss. I noted that he moves around like an Olympian, so walking is clearly ...
