Methylthioadenosine (whatever that means)

Sounds like this research is still in the early stages, but they mention that MTA could be of benefit in MS, so I think it will go in the "pre-clinical" section of the pipeline.



Protective action of a molecule in inflammatory processes discovered

Muscle Twitching (fasciculations)

Something I noticed is that probably once every two days I'll get a twitching muscle in my calf muscle, thigh, forearm, or upper arm. Is this normal? Or is this indicative of active MS? The only symptom I've had of MS (which led to my diagnosis) was nystagmus in June '05, which has since gone away. I am a 26 y/o male. Does anyone else experience this? It has never really concerned me, but it ...

Brain atrophy

The only good thing about this research is that future treatments may be judged on their ability to stop atrophy.

Repair

I like this sort of research!

Two stem cell receptors aid brain injury repair

A research team has identified two receptors that increase the number of restorative stem cells as a response to brain injury.

This knowledge, they contend, could lead to development of new drugs that target the two stem cell receptors -- called EGFR and Notch1, gp-130 -- which are key players in brain regeneration.

The research, conducted by Steve Levison, co-author ...

Double Vision

First, I want to express again my thanks for answers to questions I have posted here. Regarding two recent ones, I am on my way to getting appointment at UCSF Clinic (I had asked about clinics in US) and I seeing GP tomorrow about pursuing possible celiac/glutein ataxia link.
So here is another. One of symptoms after initial episode was double vision, occuring only during heavy exercise (running). I thought it was clearing up a ...
