Plasma exchange - why does it work?
I'm interested in hearing theories as to why plasma exchange reverses the symptoms of multiple sclerosis.
In this double-blind trial, patients experienced relief for up to 3 years. The "treatment reversed symptoms such as paralysis and loss of speech in 42% of multiple-sclerosis patients who had recently experienced severe, debilitating flare-ups of the disease"
Perhaps it contains lots of unbound transferrin (which binds with free iron)?
