Bioness personal warning

Bioness

I feel everyone should be aware of what they are getting into by buying one. Mine does not work for me, might work for others but Bioness prevents you from selling it by not selling you the supplies that are necessary to use it and wont program a resold unit. This is from Bioness when I asked to sell mine;
“Unfortunately you cannot sell your L300 devices to another person. “They are a Class ...

New association of vein anomalies and MS found

New association of vein anomalies and MS found on Sept. 2017. I remark the date because this has been reported already before several times

I would say that is getting clear that MS is not a single disease. Some cases are clearly of vascular origin, though some others are not. Look at this:

Large Noncoding RNA in blood

Expression Analysis of Long Non-coding RNAs in the Blood of Multiple Sclerosis Patients.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/28967047

Abstract

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic immune-mediated disorder of the central nervous system (CNS) with multiple genetic and environmental risk factors. Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) have been recently reported to participate in the regulation of immune responses. Consequently, aberrant expression of lncRNAs has been suggested as an underlying cause of MS.

In the present ...

A review about mechanisms in PPMS

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5607817/

Abstract

Unlike relapsing remitting multiple sclerosis, there are very few therapeutic options for patients with progressive forms of multiple sclerosis. While immune mechanisms are key participants in the pathogenesis of relapsing remitting multiple sclerosis, the mechanisms underlying the development of progressive multiple sclerosis are less well understood. Putative mechanisms behind progressive multiple sclerosis have been put forth: insufficient energy production via mitochondrial dysfunction, activated microglia, iron accumulation, oxidative ...
