Quotes

...The next time while Aduri comes to work, her highly educated employer called her and said, "You don't have to come to work anymore. We don't need your services" . This is a form of stigma often called discrimination, also called experienced or enacted stigma...
"Another observation that supports the abnormal field hypothesis is the rebound post-natalizumab. This suggests that whilst you keep T and B cells out of the nervous system with natalizumab the field (brain and spinal cord) becomes more abnormal and when you let these cells back in they detect the abnormal field and run amok trying to clear up the field. This is what happens with IRIS (immune reconstitution inflammatory syndrome) and PML. When natalizumab is washed out the immune system finds the JC virus and tries to clear it by initiating an inflammatory process. Some of us think  that rebound post natalizumab is simply IRIS in response the virus that causes MS."
"Five million people have leprosy across the world. There is a cure, and it is possible to do in our lifetime" Martignier said
"There has been something on this site since 1914, and some of the first patients here were in the war."
