You were supposed to be a lab rat for two weeks with no internet access.

Did you get dropped from the program or are you sneaking out to access thisisms? :P :P

Phentermine and Brain Damage

Ok, here I go again... A week before I ended up in the hospital for MS (June 05), I had been taking a weight loss drug called Phentermine. It was very effective. I stopped taking abruptly because I thought its effectiveness was wearing off and I was tired of the head-ache it was giving me every night when I "came down" off of this drug. Next week: I am in the hospital. I told my ...

Question about Tovaxin

I have a question about Tovaxin since I am thinking about participating in the clinical trial. I have seen that some people here are participating in the clinical trial and must have had a chance to have their questions answered. I don't know much about the immune system and I was wondering if it was possible in theory for the Tovaxin vaccine to not only destroy myelin reactive T-cell but to destroy all T-cell in ...

Studying OPCs


Movies reveal that the process of insulating nerves is surprisingly dynamic

Much like the electrical wiring in your house, the nerves in your body need to be completely covered by a layer of insulation to work properly.
Instead of red, white or black plastic, however, the wiring in the nervous system is protected by layers of an insulating protein called myelin. These layers increase the speed that nerve impulses travel throughout the brain ...

Cerebral Spinal Fluid Data

What is the significance of Glucose in CSF testing? Does anyone know? What about Protein? In June '05, when they took a sample of my CSF, the results were: CSF, GLUCOSE = 75; Reference Range=40-70

CSF, PROTEIN=42.6; Reference Range=15.0-40.0

Just curious if anyone knows anything about that?

Interesting articles

I like the NMSS as I have said before. Here are some articles from their current magazine. I don't know who Richard Cohen is - but his 87 year old father has MS which must give us hope for a reasonably long life - given the better treatments in the pipeline. And he is the third generation in his family to get MS which suggests to me that genes may play more of a role ...

This site was a serious site until that joker and attention seeker Lyon joined. I had lunch with Arron today and we feel that an official warning is needed. Lyon - you can post about worms and MS but no more postings about viagra, beavers or chocolate. HarryZ was very lonely in the period in which I banned him from posting - he claims that I apologised to him and begged him to come back ...
