As promised, I mentioned back in a previous post some fascinating research that is currently being conducted about possible differences in Multiple Sclerosis lesion formations...or I suppose I should qualify, at least it's fascinating to ME! I brought this up on the heels of the article I posted regarding the recent genetic findings in MS. And I think I mis-spoke and said I thought the lead researcher was from Harvard...well, SHE is not! (Sorry Ivy Leaguer's!)
"Much emphasis is placed on finding one cause for MS, which would allow us to develop one medicine that treats all patients," said Dr. Claudia Lucchinetti, assistant professor of Neurology at the Mayo Clinic and the lead investigator for a broad new research initiative called The MS Lesion Project. She continued, "however, the course of disease, response to medications, and even brain MRI findings vary greatly among people with MS."
