"Inflammation is Good"

On the horizon: possible neuroprotective role for glatiramer acetate. Kreitman RR and Blanchette F. Multiple sclerosis 2004. 10: S81-S89.

This non peer reviewed Teva sponsored article reviews evidence that disability in MS is caused by axonal damage, not inflammation, and that autoimmune T cells may protect against neuronal damage.

Paper has a nice discussion with lots of experts but no new data presented
