    @kz. Doing great here! Getting all packed and ready for my flight to W2W. (Anxious to hear about all the good research going on in the educational presentations that will be aired on video later). You have a great weekend too! I'll try to watch Kates live blogging on my laptop. She says she's got her fingers all warmed up.

    Do you mean that all studies using Mg/PEG are bogus and that it has zero protective effects in acute injuries?

    BTW, for those who think that PEG=antifreeze, there are many types of PEG and some of you may be drinking some everyday or at least when being prepared for a colonoscopy (PEGlyte, Lax-A-Day, Miralax are examples).

    Amen to that. PEG could fix a few broken worm axons.

    For the PEG effect to work, the cut ends of severed axonal membranes have to remain within just a few microns of each other. You can do this in a cold blooded species like worms, but in mammals the severed axonal ends rapidly retract and then dieback further from each other. They rapidly become too far apart to glue back together. Although the idea was interesting, there was never any believable evidence that this would work in a warm blooded species that has axonal retraction and a robust inflammatory reaction to the injury. I don't know where they got the dog movies but they sure do take your breath away. I wish this had panned out, but all the grants and papers that I reviewed of this strategy never made any sense.

    Kate will be logging into carecure right here. Watch the threads for her posts to begin. She types as fast as she can and does a super job. The video's of the general presentations are posted later on U2FP...

    Rockville Pike is super busy and I am not sure if there are sidewalks in that area. Speed limit is aprox 40-50 mph in certain sections.

    I would suggest you have someone scout out the walk in advance.
    Every day I wake up is a good one
