Protein That Promotes Brain Tissue Damage In MS Identified

Multiple sclerosis is one of those diseases where a cure still eludes researchers. In the absence of a cure, researchers have been working to understand the disease more. Along the way, researchers are able to discover different ways to treat the disease. In a recent study, researchers discover a type of protein that may become

Blocking An Enzyme Can Slow Down MS

Blocking An Enzyme Can Slow Down MS

Nearly a decade ago, researchers from Mayo Clinic has found an enzyme that is always present in brain lesions and blood samples in people with MS. Now, they have discovered that using an antibody to neutralize the said enzyme can also help slow down multiple sclerosis is mice. The findings of the study are published

Study Links MS To Different Area Of The Brain

Study Links MS To Different Area Of The Brain

A study has suggested evidence that MS may not only cause damage as a result of the visible lesions that the said disease can create. It may also affect other areas of the brain responsible for cognitive, motor as well as sensory functions. The results of the study are published in The Journal of Neuroscience.

Researchers Discover MS Starts In Brain’s Outer Layers

Researchers Discover MS Starts In Brain's Outer Layers

Medical experts previously believed that multiple sclerosis may develop from deep inside the brain going out. But researchers have recently discovered that this may not be the case. There are also indications that MS may develop from the outermost parts of the brain going deeper. A collaborative effort between researchers from Mayo Clinic and the

Change Of Seasons Affect MS Activity

Change Of Seasons Affect MS Activity

A new study shows that multiple sclerosis activity may also increase during the spring and summer months. Brain lesions in people with MS seem to increase during the months of March to August, with the lesions not attributable to any medication used to treat MS. The said research can be found in the August 13,2010
