Rejuvenating brain stem cells may hold key to future MS treatments

Rejuvenating brain stem cells may hold key to future MS treatments

Scientists have found a way to make older brain stem cells in rats more youthful. The discovery could lead to improved treatments for aging-related diseases that degrade the brain and nervous system. Researchers managed to rejuvenate stem cells, inching closer to more effective treatments for MS. The research concerns oligodendrocyte progenitor cells (OPCs), which are […]

Could activating these immune cells protect against MS?

Could activating these immune cells protect against MS?

In multiple sclerosis, overactive inflammatory immune cells destroy the tissue that surrounds and insulates the nerves. Now, new research in mice reveals that activating a different group of immune cells could potentially counteract the destructive autoimmune reaction. Researchers focused on the role of a single type of T cell in triggering MS. Researchers at Stanford […]

How childhood viral infections may later drive multiple sclerosis

How childhood viral infections may later drive multiple sclerosis

Childhood viral infections that reach the brain may prime it for the development of autoimmune conditions, such as multiple sclerosis, later in life — this is what a recent study that scientists conducted in mice seems to suggest. Could viral infections that occur during childhood ‘pave the way’ for MS later in life? Recent research […]
