Assuming myelin is required, the following results were found.

  • Study shows promise in repairing damaged myelin

    slowing or blocking electrical signals from reaching the eyes, muscles and other parts of the body. This sheath is called myelin. Although myelin can regrow through exposure to thyroid hormones, researchers have not pursued thyroid hormone therapies due...

  • Researchers optimize aptamer with enhanced myelin-binding properties for MS treatment

    new study has demonstrated the enhanced ability of an optimized 20-nucleotide derivative of a larger DNA aptamer to bind myelin in a mouse model of multiple sclerosis. FULL STORY -A new study has demonstrated the enhanced ability of an optimized...

  • Disability progression in multiple sclerosis linked to income, education

    risk of disability progression." MS is a chronic inflammatory disease that occurs when the body's immune system attacks myelin, the fatty material that insulates neurons to enable rapid transmission of electrical signals. When myelin or neurons are...

  • New compound offers superior therapeutic approach to treat MS

    While treatments are available to alleviate inflammation, no therapies exist to protect neurons or repair the degraded myelin sheath that normally surrounds nerves. Previous studies have shown that estrogens and estrogen-like compounds reduce multiple...

  • How does MS affect the eyes?

    mistakenly attacks healthy nerve cells. In doing so, it damages the protective coating of these cells, which is called the myelin sheath. Damage to these cells can cause permanent scarring in the brain, leading to a range of symptoms. Although MS...

  • Forgotten immune cells protective in mouse model of multiple sclerosis

    But scientists can trigger a similar disease in mice by injecting them with a small chunk, or peptide, of a protein called myelin oligodendrocyte glycoprotein, or MOG. Mice with the disease, known as experimental autoimmuneencephalomyelitis, develop...

  • Pediatric onset multiple sclerosis study examines baffling, often-overlooked disease

    the disease. Currently, 400,000 people in the U.S. have some form of MS, a disease in which white blood cells damage the myelin coatings of nerve cells in the spinal cord and brain, often causing neurological problems. But just 3-10 percent of those...
