Researchers Report Finding Potential Multiple Sclerosis 'Off Switch'

Posted September 17, 2014

Recently, a team from the University of Bristol announced it had found a way to ‘switch off’ aspects of the body’s autoimmune response so that rather than causing harm to the body these cells protect it.

The results of this study were published in Nature Communications and researchers are hopeful they could lead to the development of antigen-specific immunotherapies not only for patients with MS but other conditions like Graves’ disease, type 1 diabetes, and lupus.

  • I am the mother/care giver of my 34 yr old daughter who was dx at the age of 19,that was 15 yrs ago. I have read through the yrs everything I can get my hands on, and she has been on everything on the market. I am begging u can u help her,on 3/8/2013 she woke and was unable to move,over the past 18 months she has become bedridden, with foley 2 feeding tubes, and now a trach. This MS has stolen my daughters body from her. Every thing has been affected in some form, her limbs, she can not set, hold her head up,her bladder, bowels, her heart, lungs, vision, eating ability and swallowing, and even speaking. I am not ask for a fix, just give us some hope that she can one day set up, eat, breathe on her own, and most of all I want to hear her voice again...I need to hear those words momma I LOVE U. Please if there is a way could u help my girl, she has been on life support 2x's this year, and we even had a nurse almost kill her with a huge mistake, the doctor told me she should have died, the nurse hooked a bag of Zyvox to her trach and pumped it into her trach burst the balloon and it all went into her lungs. That was on 6/21/2014 and she is still here and fighting, GOD left her here for a reason, she has brought so much awareness to MS in our small town its unreal....that I know is why she is here to make a difference, and she is a fighter the strongest person I know she is my HERO....Please can you help me...
