  • Are the 'viral' agents of MS, ALS and schizophrenia buried in our genome?

    primordial ancestors millions of years ago. Over the millennia, most of their remnants in our DNA -- known as human endogenous retroviruses or HERVs -- have been silenced by mutations. Others, which had evolved to fend off rival viruses, formed the...
  • How do ancient viruses cause MS and other neurological diseases?

    of DNA that harbor the ability to move around our genome. Scientists can trace back one type of transposon — human endogenous retroviruses (HERVs) — to ancient retroviruses that inserted themselves into the human genome millions of years ago. HERVs make...
  • Study shows promise in repairing damaged myelin

    brain barrier, enabling a tenfold increase in infiltration to the central nervous system. "We're taking advantage of the endogenous ability of thyroid hormone to repair myelin without the side effects," said lead author Meredith Hartley, Ph.D., an OHSU...
