Quotes

"Gray matter is the fraction of the brain where a substantial number of our neurones live and are important for cognition. Therefore it is not surprising that cognitive impairment correlates so poorly with focal MRI lesions numbers, when most of the pathology is being missed. What we need is a better way of detecting and quantifying the gray matter lesion burden in life. One way of doing this is by measuring brain atrophy and regional brain atrophy. There is data emerging that when you look at regional atrophy it correlates much more closely with MS-related cognitive impairment and interestingly MS fatigue."
It is possible, said Tomassy, that these profiles of myelination "may be giving neurons an opportunity to branch out and 'talk' to neighboring neurons" . For example, because axons cannot make synaptic contacts when they are myelinated, a possibility is that these long myelin gaps may be needed to increase...
Steve Casha, M D , Ph D , FRCSC, the principal investigator at the University of Calgary, added, "We completed the surgical transplantation of the final patient yesterday and clinical studies like this one are very important to patients affected by spinal cord injury. I am very excited by the prospect of participating in the next phase of clinical research where the goal is to demonstrate efficacy in a Phase II placebo controlled clinical trial."
...along with reliable ratios to arrive at a more reasonable and accurate assessment than any single government resource can provide," Leigh said. "Agriculture is a major driver of economic wealth as well as one of the most hazardous employment environments in the nation. It could be an even more powerful economic force if we accurately counted and addressed the causes of harm to workers and farmers."
