The article presents abstracts on medical topics which include the examination of inducible over-expression of CXCL1 by astrocytes if it can also be neuroprotective, the potential generic predisposition and cognitive impairment that may be experienced by patients with multiple sclerosis, and the thickness of retinal nerve fiber layer which may be induced by brain atrophy in multiple sclerosis.
