Yet another upper respitory bacteria implicated in MS = "MS Antibodies Recognize Protein of Common Respiratory Tract Bacteria"


Folks,Thank you for stepping in and posting useful links in my absence.I think this is the link I originally tried to post:https://multiplesclerosisnewstoday.com/2017/01/05/multiple-sclerosis-an… it will work - though you may need to copy and paste it.I've been busy getting ready to help Rick move up north to live with his new Paramour!  (Girlfriend!!!).As disabled as Rick has become, he is still very charming. I will be moving with him until I know that they can be independent.  I'll live outside in a camper trailer so they have their privacy.  For Rick - right now, life is VERY SWEET!!!  I'm fighting a depression that's gone on close to a year now - including severe dysphoria, but getting closer to a solution.  I'll do.Best & Highest Regards to all.Tom C

Proud Parent of Rick - R started CAP in Nov. 13. Small measurable improvements as of 7/14, more by 10/14.  Holding Steady in early 2017.  "I will leave no stone unturned, no theory unexamined, to help my son." Tommi

Haemophilus influenzae is common enough that it'd be surprising if MS patients didn't have antibodies to it.  Indeed, looking at the study, both the MS patients and the control group had lots of antibodies to it, and the difference found wasn't in the total amount of those antibodies but in what exactly they were antibodies to.That's about when my curiosity ran out; those more curious can find the full text of the study at:https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5180199/
