      [QUOTE]”It’s early to be confident that prolactin will definitely work with people,” said [Samuel Weiss of the Hotchkiss Brain Institute at the University of Calgary]. “But prolactin represents the first example of any molecule, in this case a naturally occurring molecule, that can actually boost the repair of myelin.”[/QUOTE]

      I know I’ve seen reports of GBS patients who were pregnant. Given the rarity and transient nature, it’s probably difficult to gauge any reduction of intensity of GBS during pregnancy? But an interesting study nonetheless.
