Neurovax news

The additions to the board are impressive e.g Antel and Bourdette. These T-Reg cells keep cropping up and were mentioned in the Zenapax (Dacluzimab) article recently posted.

PS Where has my workmate Dignan gone? Good to see that Dunmann is taking up the slack. This time next week I will be in Mauritius so I'll be expecting Dignan to start getting his hands dirty again.

Mononucleosis increases risk of multiple sclerosis


NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Infection with Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), resulting in infectious mononucleosis, which primarily effects adolescents and young adults, more than doubles the risk of developing multiple sclerosis (MS) later in life, results of a large review of studies suggest.

Nixing the Need for the Needle

Induction and blockage of oligodendrogenesis

Clarifying Controversy In Multiple Sclerosis


Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a crippling autoimmune disease of the central nervous system (CNS) in which the protective nerve cell coating called myelin is damaged. Although uncontrolled CNS inflammation by immune cells called microglia (MG) and production of the protein TNF-alpha are considered important causes of demyelination and loss of nerve (neuron) function in MS, there is evidence to suggest that a controlled inflammatory response may actually restore damaged myelin ...
