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

Gene Therapy Developed To Boost Myelin Repair

Demyelinating diseases like multiple sclerosis are known to be a result of damage to the insulating material around nerve cells called myelin. Such diseases may cause not only the myelin to become damaged in the process but also damage the specialized cells whose function is to repair this important insulation material for nerve cells. This
