Links

This might be one of those DUH! type questions but here goes...........I've done many many posts in the forums and belonged here for awhile now, but never have included links within my posts.

How do I do this? Just like including links to sites in E-Mails?

I didn't even try because I didn't want to create some screwed up post here on the site.

I'd appreciate the instruction..................... or just tell me I'm a DUH! ...

Ancient Virus Protein Linked to Multiple Sclerosis

By Karla Gale

NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Syncytin, a virus protein that has been around for millions of years, may play a role in the nerve damage that occurs with multiple sclerosis (MS), scientists report in the journal Nature Neuroscience. This finding could lead to new ...

Open Minded Neurologists...................

..........and the need to work in a multidisciplinary environment.

As an example:

It is all very well for neurologists to be willing, for example to prescribe minocycline for people suffering from MS. They need to think carefully why they are doing it and seek advice from an expert in microbiology.

Most neurologists prescribing minocycline will be doing so because of its immunomodulatory powers, rather than its main use of stalling infection. They might be surprised ...

I think we all should sign it no matter where we live. What do we have to lose. If it moves quickly in the UK, maybe the FDA will be pressured in the states to approve it ...

An update on Goat Serum from the MS Society in the UK

What is goat serum?
28.09.04

This treatment uses antibodies from the serum (the fluid portion of blood) of goats that have been inoculated with a variety of vaccines, to generate neutralising antibodies.
Antibodies are proteins produced by white blood cells in response to an antigen (foreign protein), to destroy/neutralise the antigen. The strong anti-inflammatory component of the serum is thought by researchers to be 'potentially useful' in the treatment of MS.

Evidence
Much anecdotal evidence ...

Palaeolithic Diet.

Hi I'm a Newbie to the forum. I had a read through an earlier post by Crispy, a lot of good stuff in it but it is getting a little verbose and the last post to it was in July so I thought I'd start a new thread rather than append that one.

I have been dx RRMS for over 10 years and I have not made any dietary change in that time until recently. ...
