You know me…yep a troublemaker.
I am not a hotshot hardcore human immunologists, but I can read, just about, and as you know… I sometimes have opinions and express them. Maybe I do myself no favours.
We have had the suggestion that there is an protein that causes immune cells in MS to proliferate and this has then been suggested to be the target in MS.
I say lets have a look at the expression profile of this target using publically available data bases.
Yep there is loads of it in the immune cells…but in the brain. (The light blue bars on the right hand graph)…I think I need a magnifying glass 🙁
Why MS? It seems it would be more likely to cause a heart problem rather than MS.
Do you think a trial to stop immune responses to this protein will work?
I think you can guess my prediction is a No….Experiment is in progress
I’m on the record
