The Role of IL4 in MS (Antegren vs. Aimspro)

I have a question to throw out there. (Wesley, I hope you read this also, this should be a good exercise for you.)

IL4 and its role in MS is very controversial right now. I have my own opinion on it, but I'd be interested to see what others think.

I see two very distinct totally opposite theories regarding MS therapy between two of the newest drugs. Antegren and Aimspro. A goal of Antegren is ...

Ok, regarding the predominance of MS in women, here is something more recent which supports part of what I was saying in another thread.

Women produce and utilize progesterone at a much higher rate than men. But men need some progesterone, also. Since progesterone is increased in women during pregnancy, and women with MS seem to do better during pregnancy, I believe that benefit is linked to levels of progesterone. I'm not saying this is ...

After reading this article today, I wonder how the makers of the CRAB drugs and the NMSS are going to react to a treatment which "boosts the immune system" !!!!

Most of us have read the infamous NMSS press release report which damned LDN because it "boosted" the immune system and therefore could be dangerous to MS patients. Boosting the immune system, according to the NMSS, goes against all conventional treatment for MS!
