Testing effects of glatiramer acetate and fingolimod in an infectious model of CNS immune surveillance

Testing effects of glatiramer acetate and fingolimod in an infectious model of CNS immune surveillance

Immune surveillance of the CNS is critical for preventing infections; however, there is no accepted experimental model to assess the risk of infection when utilizing disease-modifying agents. We tested two approved agents for patients with multiple sclerosis (MS), [Read More]

Jugular Venous Flow Abnormalities in Multiple Sclerosis Patients Compared to Normal Controls

CONCLUSIONAfter categorizing the MS population into two groups based upon anatomical stenosis, as determined from an absolute quantification of IJV cross section, clear differences in IJV flow between the ST‐MS and HC samples became evident. Despite the unknown etiology [Read More]
