Multiple sclerosis patients enrolled in a study were found to have a genetic abnormality that leads to reduce brain levels of a specific neurosteroid called allopregnanolone, according to an international research team. Previous studies have shown that neurosteroids play a key role in some brain functions as well as repair. The discovery, published in the journal Brain, could lead to new treatments for MS, which is characterized by inflammation and damage to myelin, the protective covering of nerve cells. As the disease progresses, it can affect vision, hearing, memory and movement. Preliminary work looks promising. The researchers, led by Chris Power of the University of Alberta, report decreased brain inflammation in MS mice given additional levels of allopregnanolone. Earlier in the day, Longchamp Outlet before Cameron’s arrival, interim Liberal leader Bob Rae rejected the notion that an austerity program such as Britain’s is the only key to success. “I think there’s a growing consensus that austerity on its own is not going to solve this problem,” said Rae, who stressed that fiscal discipline, economic growth, and “healthy revenues” are all important to an economy. “The problem that some of the European economies are facing, particularly at the moment Greece, is that the size of their debt is so big that it’s very hard to know what austerity measures would actually get them to a point of being able to be in balance.” NDP foreign affairs critic Paul Dewar said it won’t help Harper if he uses Cameron’s austerity campaign as proof for why his own government should make major cuts. “Canadians understand the importance of public services,” said Dewar. “I think Mr. Harper shouldn’t be using Mr. Cameron as a foil to, you know, do his work. And I don’t think that would be accountable, responsible. And I think people would see through it.” Harper also lauded Cameron for how Britain showed fundamental conviction in recent months as it worked with other NATO allies, such as Canada, to mount a military mission to help Libyan rebels oust that country’s dictator, Moammar Gadhafi. Harper quoted former British prime minister Harold Macmillan who once said that “the state is made for man, and not man for the state.” “We also believe that when we help others to be free, it is our own liberty that we also secure,” said Harper. “Those ancient rights of democracy and the rule of law that our two countries share that are the common aspiration of millions of people around the world. They are, clearly, the aspiration of Libyans themselves. “Our mutual hope is that they will someday enjoy them in all their fullness.”
