    I wish I understood it better. How it's possible to discover new structures in the body is puzzling.

    What's always been puzzling to me is how there can be any treatment for a disease they don't really understand at all.

    They keep coming up with more sensitive technology and ways of finding things they didn't realize were there.

    Back in 2001 I was concerned about starting Avonex or one of the other injectable drugs, and one reason I held back was that I didn't think enough was known about the immune system.

    This kind of study shows that they still don't know all that much about the immune system, seems to me. But at least they've just found something out.

    17 years (has it been that long) and I've never taken any of the MS drugs. I hope and pray this next drug based on this research is the one we have all been waiting on.

    I thought the same thing when I got this two days ago for the Neuro Medicine of New England web site. Hoping this helps our docs better hone in on treatment. Apparently, they had to keep meniges in the same shape they were in the head to really see what they found because if they spread them out on a slide it was not visible,
