Cell therapy successfully promotes axon remyelination in an animal model.

Demyelinating diseases, such as multiple sclerosis and leukodystrophy, are characterized by damage to the protective myelin sheath that surrounds the axons of neurons. This demyelination can be caused by an autoimmune response or impaired myelin production by oligodendrocytes. Now, a study from Duke University shows that a cell therapy product called DUOC-01 can accelerate remyelination of axons in mice treated
