Glutamate ms research

Hi, to the scientists out there. I found in youtube a very interesting talk from Indrani Das https://youtu.be/UVRNZzQZezQ Basically she says the presence of glutamate in brain injuries would lead to neuronal death, and they tried a micro-rna and see this improves neuronal survival . I have found out this glutamate is also present in ms https://multiplesclerosisnewstoday.com/2016/05/09/high-glutamate-levels-might-drive-disease-progression-in-ms/ I wonder if this micro-RNA could aslso be used in ms Any thoughts?

@mmhhpp , I'm afraid that I didn't watch the video, but does she say where this excess of glutamate comes from? Is is a derivative of Gluten? Boy, I just googled it and you can get it from such healthy stuff as Broccoli! 😮

@mmhhpp

It comes from the injury and you need to reduce it as I understand
