A new PNAS study reveals why men are less likely to develop multiple sclerosis than women. According to researchers, a 'guardian molecule' that is triggered by testosterone appears to have a protective effect in men. When female mice were treated with the molecule, their symptoms of the disease were eliminated.
Researchers demonstrate brain plasticity also comes from activity dependent changes in oligodendrocyte precursor cell proliferation and myelin.
N-acetylglucosamine, a simple sugar found in breast milk, promotes remyelination in mouse models of multiple sclerosis. The findings could have implications for treating multiple sclerosis in humans.
Researchers have identified a unique biomarker in the blood of people with Multiple Sclerosis. Using a simple blood test, researchers were able to identify those with MS and discriminate between people at different stages of the disease.
According to a new study, some children suffer widespread damage to myelin following a TBI.
Our bodies are full of tiny superheroes—antibodies that fight foreign invaders, cells that regenerate, and structures that ensure our systems...
A new MRI study finds myelin loss in the gray matter of people's brains with MS is closely correlated with the severity of the disease.
Important clues about the causes of MS could be found in gray matter, a new study suggests.
Using MRI neuroimaging, researchers develop a new method of quantifying brain tissue volume. The new method could provide an additional way to track the progress of multiple sclerosis and other neurological diseases.
