Unknown component found in MS CSF

A previously unknown component has been identified in the CSF (Cerebrospinal fluid) of MS patients.

This is the original article. Along with the unknown component, also glutamate and some cholines.

Early research shows results for ‘vaccine’

In April 2010, sipuleucel-T (Provenge) became the first dendritic cell vaccine in cancer treatment to be approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and the agent is now used in the treatment of metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer. Insights gleaned from this research are now being applied in the study of a potential vaccine for multiple sclerosis (MS) treatment and prevention.

“We discovered DC-ASGPR, one of the receptors expressed on human dendritic cells, has ...
