Re: Theoretical Immunology in a Global Crisis

On the basis of the above work and some further input, I prepared the attached draft paper on autoimmunology. It complements the above document on Theoretical Immunology. https://drive.google.com/file/d/18EsiUx0SCL9ZDoCIfMvHiUNJCpQDYc9F/view?usp=sharing For many professionals, after some initial ent...

Re: Theoretical Immunology in a Global Crisis

Hi Scott, I don't think it would be the appropriate thing to do to share the video of the presentation here. Sorry for that. I normally attach great value to openness, but in this case maybe better not. We need these people for our cause. I believe ongoing discussions are best held in the private sp...

Re: An atlas on risk factors

Read my thesis on https://www.thisisms.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=15188&start=900#p260052 for a broader perspective on things. This Swedish atlas is kindergarten stuff just adding to the confusion. A new global cognition is developing outside traditional circles, on the Internet, in weekly meetin...

Re: Theoretical Immunology in a Global Crisis

On the basis of the last dozen postings or so, I started to put together a document, a sort of a thesis if you wish. But then, after I collated the postings, I felt a need to add other things where there were holes or where things got insufficient attention. With that, unfortunately, the document go...

Re: A new concept for MS and other autoimmune diseases

In the years prior to my MS diagnosis and the major flare up, I had an agitated skin in the neck when shaving. I remember that a doctor from my employer where I was for an annual check up suggested to start using an after shave. [Post script: Now that my memory comes back, I also had a stiff neck an...

Re: A new concept for MS and other autoimmune diseases

Critics might argue that herpes is a double stranded DNA virus and that it may not unravel that easily in the cellular machinery. And therefore that interaction with the HERV resulting in a repackaging of RNA material is not obvious. But it has been known for some time that herpes viruses integrate ...

Re: A new concept for MS and other autoimmune diseases

I think that after my 10,000 hours I am getting into the flow of things. I am sure this is not an immediate solution for us or for MS but to know what it is is the first step towards prevention and effective therapies. Based on the last few pages of this thread, the new grand theory might now look a...

Re: A new concept for MS and other autoimmune diseases

I was looking through the pile of papers that I collected in recent years and found interesting material on the HERV. It is the missing piece that puts it all together. I then drafted the following text: Autoimmunity: viral recombination on the edge of the self [/size] Over many millions, perhaps ev...

Re: A new concept for MS and other autoimmune diseases

Hallo lyndacarol, On your question, I have added the link to the essay in the above posting. I seem to remember you from the past when we had an exchange of ideas on this very forum on the role of insulin and cellular feeding in MS. This was in the Autumn of 2010. I had read somewhere that there is ...

Re: A new concept for MS and other autoimmune diseases

A perspective on the link between mitochondrial functioning and disease Most of our body’s nucleated cells contain 500 to 2000 mitochondria, some sources say 1500 to 3000, the heart muscle up to 5000. In the cone cell photoreceptors of the eye, mitochondria make up 80% of the intracellular volume. I...
