Multiple sclerosis is an autoimmune condition where the body’s own immune system attacks myelin, the protective insulation of the nerve fibers. As a result, it leads to symptoms that can affect one’s movement and balance among other things. The disease is known to have no known cure although many therapies are available to help sufferers […]

Biological Switch That Enables Stem Cells To Regenerate Myelin Found

Multiple sclerosis is a debilitating condition that is characterized by damage to the myelin sheath, the insulating layer that protect nerve fibers in the brain to enable efficient communication between the nerve cells and the brain in the central nervous system. A possible MS treatment that researchers look into aim to identify ways to repair […]

Regeneration Blockers May Affect Myelin Levels

Many researchers have known that a number of neuronal diseases such as multiple sclerosis may be connected to the level of myelin in the body. Myelin is an insulating substance known to protect nerve fibers. People with MS are known to experience myelin damage, although the actual causes of such a disease remain unknown. Researchers […]
