PPAR Agonists

Ok.....this is a spin-off from the "Nerve Regeneration" thread I just started. I mentioned the commonality of PPARs in it.

I see now, that a researcher has found the same thing I was about to post (several abstracts), so I'll save time and just post his synopsis, which I retrieved from the NMSS website. He has been given a pretty large grant to proceed with his research. This sounds promising:

Douglas Feinstein, PhD

Nerve Regeneration

Hi, folks!

Just when I thought I had "read it all"! Here's something I ran across that I found interesting. Don't ask me who this gentleman is exactly , but s/he's from the Brain Research Institute at the University of Zurich (that's Switzerland, right? :wink: )

Anyway, it's pretty easy reading. For some reason, I found "something" in it interesting, and maybe with ...

Easier to read postings, how?

Something I have seen mentioned on other forums:

Some MSers have trouble reading postings that have alot of sentences run together. Separating paragraphs like this is apparently a help.

I know I am especially guilty of running sentences and paragraphs together in some of my long posts.

Are there other suggestions you folks can give to make it easier to read posts? Perhaps some pointers on making posts more easy to follow.

Bigger fonts? There ...

To Dr. Scott's patients...

Dr. Scott is no longer doing phone consultations for LDN scripts, so if you are using him, you need to make other arrangements to get your LDN for now. I wish I knew more to tell you, but I don't.

If you would like to write a letter to him stating how much difficulty you had in finding someone to prescribe LDN and how it helped you, that might be of some benefit to help ...

MS and Relationships

Here's a subject that probably hasn't been discussed for while, if ever, here. Relationships with people with MS.

As we all know, it was eventually determined that I do NOT have MS. Yippee! BUT..........of course after all of this time and my intense involvement with MS, I have made several friends with MS.

I just had a doctor appointment with my PCP a couple of days ago, and we got into an interesting discussion regarding ...

Vitamin C and MS ???

I have been under the impression that Vitamin C is generally not recommended for people with MS because it may stimulate the immune system. I started to read more about it and came across this news release. Discovery Shows New Vitamin C Health Benefits

The newest findings explain for the first time how vitamin C can react with and neutralize the toxic byproducts of human fat metabolism.

“This is a previously unrecognized function for vitamin ...

Anti-biotics and nerve protection

Dear all,

Article from the BBC's website about anti-biotics and nerve protection. Doesn't specifically mention ms but is no doubt relevant.

As usual the research was done on mice - do scientists have a phobia about humans?

As usual, further trials will be necessary etc etc.

I hope that there's an ms researcher out there who has set the following New Year's resolution - 'to undertake a piece of research which reaches definitive results and ...
