one day

One day,....they'll find that "Golden" cell that may just un-lock the MyStery

 

Well…..just getting closer and closer to busting this MS thing wide open.

Some may already know this but,…. it is the way that our immune system attacks our own bodies and does the damage that it does. 

That is MS…..in a very large nut shell.  

 

So………What are researchers doing? 

To some………….not enough…….but to others (scientists),…..its complicated.  The effort is being put out there,….but for some……it can’t come soon enough.

So with that……..I report the latest from my neck of the woods (Seattle).

Looks as though the BRI here in Seattle picked up some new talent.  Here is an article on that and what she brings to the group.

Also………….

Here is a NMSS news clip from last months issue from the Northwest.  I’ve met Dr. Nepom……He is a very “sharp egg”.

Dr Nepom was fetured on the cover of the NMSS fall 2009 new letter you can download a “PDF” copy of that news letter here:

“Neurology”……meet……”Immunology”

It’s the combination that us MS’ers love to see working together.  Seeing how the two go together so beautifully in “The Fight w/MS”

I honestly believe that it will take work of Neurologist working with Immunologists to decifer “what” has eluded us for so long…….

And “What is that?”…..you may ask…..

……a “cure.”   

Shhhhh………!!!!!!

a word not to be taken lightly.

 

Remember……..

Dr Nepom is the one that validated the “Slavin” protocol earlier this summer when I met w/ him at the BRI “Science Friday”.  It was then full speed ahead on the MSC transplant.

Thank You again Trish Markey.

 

Be Well
