"Does anyone know of ANY drugs being developed that help make the blood brain barrier impervious to transportation of these immune cells that "eat" our myelin tissue?Seems to me if we can prevent them from getting to the CNS in the first place, it would help us immensely."
So, does anyone out there have any answers on this? I certainly don't know, but I agree with you Jim! Someone get on that research!
A slightly different approach is Fingolimod. Forgive my prejudice here... My lamens understanding of what it's doing in my body (if I have it in my body, hahah ;) is that it attaches to my T cells and moves them back to my lymph nodes for cleaning and a reset before they get to the destructive attack behaviour in the brain etc.
