CHERRY HILL, N.J., June 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --My MS Manager, the first-of-its kind mobile phone app... This observational study investigates the associations between multiple sclerosis disability and disease type with lower thoracic cord gray matter and white matter areas using phase sensitive inversion recovery magnetic resonance imaging at 3T, as well as compares these relationships with those... A team to address both the physical and emotional outcomes of MS relapse is essential to high quality care. Step closer to understanding why men are better protected from MS than womenAn innocent mistake made by a graduate student in a Northwestern Medicine lab (she... Read about how Opexa Therapeutic's Tcelna is truly a personalized therapy for patients with multiple sclerosis. We mobilize people and resources to drive research for a cure and to address the challenges of everyone affected by MS. Falls Church resident Lisa Emrich was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, an autoimmune disorder that affects the central nervous system, nearly ten years ago.But the first time she experienced what can be one of the more extreme symptoms of the disorder, temporary blindness, was in 2000. That bout of optic neuritis Background Fingolimod efficiently reduces multiple sclerosis (MS) relapse by inhibiting lymphocyte egress from lymph nodes through down-modulation of sphingosine 1-phosphate (S1P) receptors. We aimed to clarify the alterations in peripheral blood T cell subsets associated with MS relapse on fingolimod. Methods/Principal Findings Blood samples successively collected from 23 relapsing-remitting MS patients before and during fingolimod therapy (0.5 mg/day) for 12 months and 18 healthy Via Krishan Maggon New findings published in the journal Molecular Psychiatry have researchers uncovering the cause of "brain fog." The U.S. Food and Drug Administration today approved the first generic version of Copaxone (glatiramer acetate injection), used to treat patients with relapsing forms of multiple sclerosis (MS). Another study suggests that a telehealth system could help objectively monitor dose adherence. A combination of physical, occupational, hand, speech, cognitive, and behavioral therapy improves outcomes. Insurance coverage can be the determining factor on whether a patient receives DMT or not. Read about the upcoming International Multiple Sclerosis Conference to take place in Rome that will focus on the patients' experience to treat the disease. Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an immune-mediated, neuro-inflammatory, demyelinating and neurodegenerative disease of the central nervous system (CNS) with a heterogeneous clinical presentation and course. There is a remarkable phenotypic heterogeneity in MS, and the molecular mechanisms underlying it remain unknown. We aimed to investigate further the etiopathogenesis related molecular pathways in subclinical types of MS using proteomic and bioinformatics approaches in cerebrospinal fluids of pati Via Krishan Maggon Intracerebral infection of susceptible mouse strains with Theilers murine encephalomyelitis virus (TMEV) results in chronic demyelinating disease with progressive axonal loss and neurologic dysfunction similar to progressive forms of multiple sclerosis (MS). We previously showed that as the disease progresses, a marked decrease in brainstem N-acetyl aspartate (NAA; metabolite associated with neuronal integrity) concentrations, reflecting axon health, is measured. We also demonstrated stimulation of neurite outgrowth by a neuron-binding natural human antibody, IgM12. Treatment with either the serum-derived or recombinant human immunoglobulin M 12 (HIgM12) preserved functional motor activity in the TMEV model. In this study, we examined IgM-mediated changes in brainstem NAA concentrations and central nervous system (CNS) pathology. The myth that African Americans do not get MS is just that a myth. African Americans do get MS. In fact, studies suggest that MS can be especially active. David Lyons doesn't let his battle against multiple sclerosis knock him off his feet. He's fought back, continuing his bodybuilding training while assisting others by creating the MS Fitness Challenge.
