Road to MS

Hi all, I have been told my my doctor and my neurologist they are looking for MS, when I asked them flat out. I am Claustrophobic and the MRI has been a issue though my insurance has finally agreed to a full sedation MRI and they are working on scheduling it, not sure how long it will take. Will be done with and without contrast and brain and spine (I believe, from what I read ...

Flow & anatomical abnormalities in MS vs Controls using MRI

Hello everyone,

I am delighted to present this work fresh off the presses. Within the paper lies clear differences in venous anatomy in the MS and HC samples, but most importantly in jugular flow between the two. Also elucidated are the pitfalls of the Rodger and Traboulsee studies. Specifically, using individual IJV flow and percent stenosis method, instead of total IJV (and normalized IJV flow to arterial flow) and using fixed area for determining stenosis. ...


Ebola Concerns While on Immunosuppressants?

Is anyone else concerned about Ebola while on immunosuppressant's to treat MS? I was diagnosed with MS about a month ago (although my doc says I have probably had it for about 10 years) and am about to start Tecfidera for treatment.

Plegridy anyone?

Anyone on plegridy? I am considering switching from Rebif (6 years). I was on Avonex 8 years and it made me horribly depressed. Rebif doesn't for some reason. Maybe because I am on 22 mg.

Any info would be appreciated.

The landmark paper, “B4GALT6 regulates astrocyte activation during CNS inflammation,” was authored by Lior Mayo, Francisco J. Quinta et al. at Harvard Medical School. Abdolmohamad Rostami, M.D. Ph.D., professor and chair ...
