Getting On Your Nerves ... And Repairing Them 16 February 2007

In a study to be published in the March 2007 issue of The FASEB Journal, scientists from East Carolina University report that a key molecular mechanism, RNA interference (RNAi), plays a role in the regeneration and repair of periphery nerves, which are the nerves located outside of the brain and spinal column. This research may lead to new therapies that manipulate RNAi to ...

I chose to be patriotic and go with a Canadian collection of short stories:

It seems to be available at Amazon in the US and UK, not that I'm telling you where to get your books...it might be in libraries too... You can also buy the book from the CBC website. "The Vinyl Cafe" is a weekly radio program and there are a number of story collections ...

Luck ran out

So I almost made it two years since my CIS. For about a week now I've had a mild burning sensation on my skin from the top of my right foot up to about my knee, but it is only on the right side of my right leg. It then also affects my right cheek on my buttocks, and that is it. It is not numb to the touch, I can pinch or scratch and ...

home goes to /index.html which doesnt seem to exist.

small possible site problem. When I click on the "Home" menu item on the right (for example, when I am in forums), it tries to take me to http://www.thisisms.com/index.html, which does not appear to exists. I get a "HTTP 404 Not Found" error in my browser.

I didn't know there was such a thing as "Permenant Arrest" but this seems to shoot that theory.

Stem cells in the brain

Interesting discovery. It's nice that scientists keep discovering new ways that our brains repair and regenerate themselves during adulthood.



Brain creates 'new' nerve cells

Researchers have discovered a type of brain cell that continuously regenerates in humans.

A pool of "resting cells" migrate to create new nerve cells in the part of the brain which deals with smell.

The system has been shown in mice and rats but it was believed it did not exist ...

Predicting atrophy

Hi all,

I keep hearing about 'underlying' or 'insidious' disease activity, which occurs continuously, (even in RRMS). In this editorial, they almost admit to being distracted by T1 and T2 lesions at the expense of awareness of total brain atrophy, but it seems that measuring volume and T2 load at diagnosis can predict later volume loss,
