Osteoporosis and Multiple Sclerosis: Risk Factors, Pathophysiology, and Therapeutic Interventions

Osteoporosis and Multiple Sclerosis: Risk Factors, Pathophysiology, and Therapeutic Interventions

Abstract Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic inflammatory-demyelinating disease of the nervous system. There has been mounting evidence showing that MS is associated with increased risk of osteoporosis and fractures. The development of osteoporosis in MS patients can be [Read More]

‘Neuroinflammation’ differs categorically from inflammation: transcriptomes of Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, schizophrenia and…

Abstract ‘Neuroinflammation’ has become a widely applied term in the basic and clinical neurosciences but there is no generally accepted neuropathological tissue correlate. Inflammation, which is characterized by the presence of perivascular infiltrates of cells of the [Read More]

Genetic variants in IL2RA and IL7R affect multiple sclerosis disease risk and progression

Genetic variants in IL2RA and IL7R affect multiple sclerosis disease risk and progression

In this study, we describe the association between IL2RA (rs2104286) and IL7R (rs6897932) in the Canadian population. Genotyping 1,978 MS patients and 830 controls failed to identify any significant association between these variants and disease risk. However, stratified [Read More]
