The Immunopathogenesis of MS
If you follow research on multiple sclerosis, you’ve seen one of those awful slides showing the complex immune pathways involved in MS, overloaded with arrows, shapes, and text. Those slides are often projected at the beginning of the talk, sometimes very quickly and sometimes in very small type, specifically to make the point that the immunopathogenesis is so complex that there’s no point even in attempting to follow all the details. The speaker will often make a joke about how bewildering it all is, and the audience often laughs. Though the immunopathogenesis of MS is knotty, it is not beyond the ken of mere mortals. In this video Dr. Suhayl Dhib-Jalbut takes us step by step through those pathways, illuminating details that may formerly have been obscure.
