MS is characterized by brain inflammation, loss of myelin, damage to oligodendrocytes (the cells that make myelin), damage to neurons, and scar formation in the brain. As a result, nerve signals are not properly conducted, causing loss of neurological function. Stem cells are hypothesized to promote repair in MS by migrating to areas of demyelination, blocking damage-forming events, and enabling repair.Why Neural Stem Cells?
