I would have just posted the Abstracts but they are useless!!! These guys have "novel" brains!!!

Abstract
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is the most common chronic demyelinating disease of the central nervous system (CNS) and the major cause of neurological disability in young adults in Western countries. In spite of intensive research efforts, treatment options established to date do not sufficiently prevent the accumulation of tissue damage and clinical disability in patients with MS. We here describe recently identified molecules responsible for the inflammatory and the neurodegenerative processes in MS and its animal model, experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE), and review new treatment options targeting both aspects of this disease.

Neurodegeneration and -protection in autoimmune CNS inflammation.

Abstract
Neurodegeneration in multiple sclerosis (MS) is the structural correlate of permanent neurological disability in patients. The histopathological features of neurodegeneration include destruction of axons as well as apoptotic cell death of neuronal cell bodies. Therapeutic efforts to control these clinically important aspects of MS pathology showed limited success so far. In this review article, we give an overview about the current knowledge concerning the molecular mechanisms of neurodegeneration in autoimmune inflammation that is mainly derived from animal models. Further, we critically discuss experimental neuroprotective strategies with respect to their functional relevance and differentiate between anti-apoptotic and axon protective treatment approaches.

Here is a nice short summary of this article in the Journal of Neuroimmunology.

Targeting the different levels of inflammatory neurodegeneration. Our current understanding of autoimmune demyelination imparts the necessity for therapeutic approaches to target inflammation and neurodegeneration simultaneously. This can be achieved by applying molecules which are capable of targeting both pathogenetic processes or by applying combination therapies. While targeting TRAIL signaling in the CNS offers therapeutic benefit for T cell-mediated neuronal damage, targeting the HMGCR pathway is more likely to keep the immune response under control. By targeting the proteosome with polyphenols such as EGCG, therapeutic benefit is rendered for both inflammation and neuronal damage altogether.]


This does require you to believe that MS is a two stage disease.

So I take my Zocor with my mega dose of green tea extract(EGCGs) each night. It works!!
