new research in the fight against ms?


Here’s an article that came out recently:

Can Indazole Chloride Cure MS?

It’s a lot of sciencey-geeky stuff in the article (of which I am one, so let me sum it up)–but bottom line, this compound seems to mimic the effects of estrogen without most of the nasty side-effects–higher risk of breast and ovarian cancer in women, feminization in men.

According to this article, estrogen has a protective effect on myelin, and may even repair myelin. Interesting, as I thought I’d heard that it was progesterone… ???

Anyway, they’ve gotten it working in rats, so this is still a long way out. As I recall, there are a few other things in the pipeline that the Myelin Repair Foundation might have going?
