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 … Continue Reading Cell therapy successfully promotes axon remyelination in an animal model.

It has long been known that the brain is protected from alterations elsewhere in the body by a highly regulated gateway known as the blood-brain barrier, which allows only selected … Continue Reading Researchers identify how the blood-brain barrier is maintained to control ‘tight junction’ function.

Stem cell transplant lessens brain lesions associated with Multiple Sclerosis in human trials.

Results from a preliminary study indicate that among patients with relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (MS), treatment with nonmyeloablative hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (low intensity stem cell transplantation) was associated with improvement … Continue Reading Stem cell transplant lessens brain lesions associated with Multiple Sclerosis in human trials.
