  • BPPV as a Cause of Vertigo in Multiple Sclerosis
    About 20% of people with multiple sclerosis (MS) experience vertigo at some point. While this can be caused by an MS lesion, it is actually more likely to be caused by benign paroxysmal positioning vertigo (BPPV), a condition which is largely unrelated to MS and can be treated without medications.
  • Are You Feeling Vertigo? It May Be a Sign of MS
    Vertigo is a fairly common symptom of MS, occurring in about 20% of people at some point. The good news it that it is not a permanent symptom, and may not even indicate a new lesion or inflammation, as vertigo can have non-MS causes.
  • Peripheral Neuropathy
    Peripheral neuropathy is damage to the peripheral nervous system that causes pain, numbness, tingling and/or muscle weakness in the extremities.

  • Has the Cure for Multiple Sclerosis Been Found?
    For those who suffer the debilitating effects of multiple sclerosis, a disease that destroys the nervous system, new hope has arrived in the form of a commonly used treatment for cancer and similar illnesses. Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation, or HSCT, is the process of using the patients own stem cells to re-establish function in patients whose own immune systems are damaged or defective. The cells are collected from the patient, then "cleansed" and frozen for storage. Meanwhile, the...
  • Multiple Sclerosis Basics
    Multiple Sclerosis, also commonly known as MS, is a chronic, long-lasting and usually progressive disease affecting the central nervous system. MS progresses by cause sing continued damage to sheaths of nerve cells in the spinal cord, brain and optic nerves. In MS, immune cells attack myelin.

  • Pathophysiological processes in multiple sclerosis: focus on nuclear factor erythroid-2-related factor 2 and emerging pathways.
    Authors: Arnold P, Mojumder D, Detoledo J, Lucius R, Wilms H Abstract Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a disease of the central nervous system that is characterized by the demyelination of neuronal axons. Four different patterns of demyelination have been described, showing the heterogeneity in the immunopathologic processes involved in the demyelination. This review will focus on reactive oxygen species (ROS)-related inflammation in MS. Special emphasis will be placed on the nuclear factor...
  • Multi-Sectional Views Textural Based SVM for MS Lesion Segmentation in Multi-Channels MRIs.
    Authors: Abdullah BA, Younis AA, John NM Abstract In this paper, a new technique is proposed for automatic segmentation of multiple sclerosis (MS) lesions from brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) data. The technique uses a trained support vector machine (SVM) to discriminate between the blocks in regions of MS lesions and the blocks in non-MS lesion regions mainly based on the textural features with aid of the other features. The classification is done on each of the axial, sagittal...
  • The Protective Role of HLA-DRB1(∗)13 in Autoimmune Diseases.
    Authors: Bettencourt A, Carvalho C, Leal B, Brás S, Lopes D, Martins da Silva A, Santos E, Torres T, Almeida I, Farinha F, Barbosa P, Marinho A, Selores M, Correia J, Vasconcelos C, Costa PP, da Silva BM Abstract Autoimmune diseases (AIDs) are characterized by a multifactorial aetiology and a complex genetic background, with the MHC region playing a major role. We genotyped for HLA-DRB1 locus 1228 patients with AIDs-213 with Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE), 166 with Psoriasis or...

  • Multiple Sclerosis and Driving

    I stopped driving for over 8 years because of my multiple sclerosis (MS). I found it scary to be behind the wheel in a way that is very difficult to describe. I just was never sure that I was doing the right thing or would be able to react to something happening on the road correctly or in time.

  • Q. How does multiple sclerosis impact my children?

    A. Any parent with multiple sclerosis knows that MS definitely introduces challenges to an already difficult job. Taking care of children at different ages can be physically grueling, and some of the fatigue and mobility symptoms that come with MS can really intensify the challenges for parents, even resulting in activities that get canceled and a "smaller" world for kids that have to adapt when Mom or Dad just can'tdo things.



  • The MS Symptoms That Come and Go

    I'm writing to remind you that as things start to heat up, you may experience more paroxysmal symptoms. These are those lovely MS symptoms that appear and make things difficult or uncomfortable for awhile, then go away as quickly as they showed up.

    Intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) is used in many neurological diseases, including multiple sclerosis (MS). In some studies, IVIG has been shown to be effective for MS in preventing relapses in postpartum women, delaying onset of MS after clinically isolated syndrome and in primary progressive MS.
