Promising News From Oregon

They seem to have found an enzyme that is present only in people like us. If they can block the enzyme from being created, maybe the brain can repair itself.

Now that would be great to stop it and allow for the heal.

Wish they would have reported the numbers/instances of MSers and stroke victims that have this. And, how they identified the enzyme...i.e., was it through autopsy? And, if there is a way of knowing these percentages of MSs and alike that have this enzyme, etc. while we are alive and kickin.
