Scientists discover blood sample detection method for multiple sclerosis, the process will avoid invasive, painful process of collecting fluid from brain and spine
A method for quickly detecting signs of multiple sclerosis has been developed by a University of Huddersfield research team.
University of Huddersfield researchers have developed a blood test for diagnosing Multiple Sclerosis that avoids the invasive, painful process of collecting fluid from the brain and spine.
European Lead Factory (ELF) project has identified novel small molecules that might be transformed into a new medical treatment for depression and pain.
Having discovered an interesting protein involved in depression and pain, Dr Patrick McHugh, University of Huddersfield, wanted to access chemical tools to further explore its role and action.
Pioneering ideas to improve antidepressant therapies are greatly required since existing antidepressants are moderately effective and the response rate in patients suffering from depression is approximately less than 50%.

‘Researchers wish to hear from people over the age of 18 who DO NOT suffer from chronic pain (> 3 months) to comprise a control group for a research project’
“...pain is a highly subjective phenomenon and sensitivities vary from patient to patient...”
