An Open Letter to Presumptuous Care Providers
Dear Care Provider, I am not a number on a chart, a line copied from your medical textbook, nor a statistic that always fits into carefully written criteria. I am a human being with emotions, dreams, goals and a life outside of your small exam room. I am so much more than that diagnosis code you entered into your medical files. When you see me for those brief moments once a month, you seem to make such vast assumptions about my existence. You assert your opinion on my emotional ability to deal with my illness firmly, as if your perspective is the only possible truth. You ask me how I believe I am coping with my situation, ...

Control Inflammation and “Turn Off” Disease-Causing Genes
The single most important thing you can do to prevent premature aging is to control inflammation. Inflammation is the body’s effort to heal itself. But too much produces disease. In fact, most of the diseases associated with aging are essentially inflammatory diseases. That includes cancer, heart disease, arthritis, arteriosclerosis, Alzheimer’s disease and diabetes. And the truth is that we’re all inflamed thanks to a modern diet that includes inflammation-friendly ingredients like sugar, cheap vegetable oils, and refined carbohydrates. Most doctors are not educated in the role of nutrition in disease. A...

My 17-Year Quest For The Correct Medical Diagnosis
How many times can you begin again? That's what I asked myself as I entered the Hospital for Special Surgery, just three weeks after my first lumbar spine epidural steroid injection and SI joint procedure. I was late. I spent two hours stuck in traffic during my drive from New Jersey to New York. So I was frazzled and my thoughts were scattered when I arrived. Yet, that question, can I start over again after another procedure rattled around in my head. My entire adulthood has been a long and winding road, at least medically. At 17, a sparse menstrual cycle, joint pain and spontaneous fever left doctors scratching their he...

In the summer of 1975 a group of children who often played together developed an unusual flu-like illness with severe joint pain. They were diagnosed with Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis (JRA). All of them lived in a small town at the mouth of the Connecticut River called Lyme. The story of their disease contains all the elements of a good novel; mystery, loss, blood, empathy, indifference, conflict, controversy and conspiracy, truth and fiction. Doctors suspect JRA when they see kids with persistent joint pain or swelling, unexplained skin rashes, and fever associated with swelling of lymph nodes or inflammation of internal...

It is happening at UCLA and at a small number of other major medical centers, where processed stool from healthy donors is being introduced into the gastrointestinal tracts of patients with Clostridium difficile, or C. diff. The infection is most commonly acquired in the hospital, causing diarrhea, intestinal pain and cramps, fever and potentially worse — 14,000 people die from C. diff in the U.S. each year.

(Cell Transplantation Center of Excellence for Aging and Brain Repair) Systemic lupus erythematosus is an autoimmune disease that produces autoantibodies and subsequent immune reactions that can be life threatening when major organs are invaded. When mesenchymal stem cells derived from human bone marrow were transplanted into mice modeled with SLE, inflammation was reduced and nephritis attenuated. The researchers found that MSCs slowed the progression of SLE by suppressing the emergence of the damaging antibodies that are produced with the help of follicular T helper cells.

Actively Induced Experimental Autoimmune Encephalomyelitis in Rats
The rat and especially a number of inbred rat strains are very well suited for modeling multiple sclerosis (MS). Experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE), the model of MS, can be induced by active or passive immunization. Active immunization can be performed with different myelin proteins or peptides thereof. Passive immunization is performed by transfer of myelin-specific T cells. Most known is EAE induced with myelin basic protein (MBP) in LEW (RT1l) rats that results in monophasic disease and EAE induced with myelin oligodendrocyte glycoprotein (MOG) in DA (RT1av1) rats that leads to relapsing remitting or chroni...

Experimental autoimmune encephalitis (EAE), the animal model of multiple sclerosis (MS), has provided significant insight into the mechanisms that initiate and drive autoimmunity. Several central nervous system proteins and peptides have been used to induce disease, in a number of different mouse strains, to model the diverse clinical presentations of MS. In this chapter, we detail the materials and methods used to induce active and adoptive EAE. We focus on disease induction in the SJL/J, C57BL/6, and BALB/c mouse strains, using peptides derived from proteolipid protein, myelin basic protein, and myelin oligodendrocyte gl...
