Iron in Multiple Sclerosis and Its Noninvasive Imaging with Quantitative Susceptibility Mapping.
 

Author(s): Carsten Stüber, David Pitt, Yi Wang

Journal:

 

Iron is considered to play a key role in the development and progression of Multiple Sclerosis (MS). In particular, iron that accumulates in myeloid cells after the blood-brain barrier (BBB) seals may contribute to chronic inflammation, oxidative stress and eventually neurodegeneration. ...

Modelling genetic susceptibility to multiple sclerosis with family data.
 

Author(s): Cullen O'Gorman, Rui Lin, James Stankovich, Simon A Broadley

Journal: Neuroepidemiology. 2013 ;40(1):1-12.

 

A genetic contribution to susceptibility is well established in multiple sclerosis (MS) and 57 associated genetic loci have been identified. We have undertaken a meta-analysis of familial risk studies with the aims of providing definitive figures for risks to relatives, performing ...
