Say what?

As there is no good statement for quote in this paper, and I don't really understand it other than I think Scientists are saying that they found the a missing protein that is the cause of demylenation...in mice at least. Hopefully this will turn out to be a big find that'll lead to major updates in treatments...or even a cure!

Another infusion

Nothing important to report. Everybody at the Ambulatory Infusion Center was nice as usual. The hospital food has never meet the first meal I had received, and thats a bummer. Always nice to be served lunch though. The needlestick went as well as one could expect, and it wasn't in the 'Ambulance Vein':

Dear Family and Friends,

I've joined the movement to create a world free of MS On Sunday,
May 2, 2010 I will participate in Walk MS,
Bloomington location. This fund raising event
benefits the Greater Illinois Chapter of the National Multiple
Sclerosis Society. Approximately 400,000 people nationwide, including
20,000 here in Illinois, live with multiple sclerosis.

Multiple sclerosis interrupts the flow of information between the
brain and the body and stops people from moving. With the help
of people like you, the National MS Society, Greater Illinois Chapter
can mobilize people and resources to drive research for a cure and to
address the challenges of everyone affected by MS. I am writing
to ask you to join the movement by participating in Walk MS or kindly
include a donation to my fundraising efforts. Every dollar
raised helps to fund research, programs, and services for those living
with MS. This is made possible by people like you--friends,
family and associates who support my fundraising goals and the goals
of the more than 12,000 people who will be walking with me.
Please join me to create a world free of MS.

It's faster and easier than ever to support this great cause--
you can make your donation on line by clicking "Support"
and follow the prompts. If you prefer, you can also mail your
tax-deductible contribution to me or directly to the Greater Illinois
Chapter. Please make checks payable to the National Multiple
Sclerosis Society and include my name on the check's memo
section. I ask all donations be made prior to the Walk MS event
date of May 2, 2010. Visit http://www.msillinois.org/ to find
more information from the National MS Society, Greater Illinois
Chapter.

Thank you for your support.

Sincerely,
Mike
