Coenzyme Q10 - Idebenone

Has anybody experience with Idebenone - or Mnesis (Takeda Chemicals) or whatever commercial name - ?
It looks promising, sort of better chemical variant of CoQ10 - with so called properties to protect the brain's myelin sheath.
I am a chemist, and both molecules look very similar in their anti-oxydant properties. Unfortunately I do not know anything about how slightly different chains in a molecule could affect processes in the body.

Google Scholar beta

Google has a new search type: Google Scholar. You can reach it on the Google website by clicking on 'More'. It is a beta version so it will hiccup occassionally but it will give you more research article oriented results and less of the home remedies, junior's first grade science project website, etc. It is similar to what you might get with PubMed and MedLine in medical research libraries and institutions. This is important if ...

The Sweats ::ick:::

I'm having night sweats and have had for some time. When you go look around at those 'diagnose thyself' websites... one usually finds - HIV (nope)... Menopause (very unlikely since I'm a guy)... blood sugar...and a few other unlikely maladies depending on the website...

Looking around in the MS areas I don't find too much either.... I did find on some discussion lists a few folks who had discussed with their doc but the doc ...

Hi there

Hi, I’ve been lurking around the site for a while now and there’s some excellent information here. I’m 23 and was diagnosed with MS 5 years ago. After a bit of a rough patch about 18 months ago I think I have finally found my feet again (in a manner of speaking :D ) and got things under control.

I’ve taken avonex in the past which ...

Questions about Antegren? Post them here

This is MS has established a wonderful contact at Elan who is an MD researcher there. He has graciously offered to at least entertain, if not answer, our questions about Antegren (because they are a public company, there are certain questions that they simply cannot answer at this point...)

So.... please post questions you would like to ask Elan about Antegren in this thread, and when we have a critical mass, I will pass them ...

help finding type of MS info

I just can't find it again. I was recently reading a piece explaining the types of MS. The types were not the usual ones (RRMS, etc...), it was more of a detail of what was happening inside.

Do you know what I am looking for? I can't find it!!!

Thanks - and I'm going nuts - yes I know.

Which Supplements for Neuroprotection & MS?

Odduck wrote:
Raising BDNF is only one of many ways to help provide neuroprotection. Maintaining neuronal (via ion channels) sodium density is also a form of neuroprotection. (Keppra - i.e. levetiracetam - helps to provide neuroprotection, also.) Most of the AEDs have neuroprotection mechanisms of action. There are several neurotrophins that will help provide neuroprotection.

And can/should it be inexpensive? Absolutely! It's fairly easy to find substances/drugs that will assist with neuroprotection.

Neuroprotection is a ...
