Discover How Myelin-Making Cells Move Into Place – May Help Find Ways to Repair Myelin Damaged by MS
January 26, 2016
A team led by Dr. Stephen Fancy at the University of California, San Francisco, with collaborators at five other U.S. research institutions, conducted a series of studies to pinpoint how young cells with potential to make nerve-insulating myelin move into their proper places along blood supply routes in the developing brain. Since myelin is damaged during the course of multiple sclerosis, this basic discovery is likely to contribute to knowledge needed to find ways to repair myelin and restore function in people with MS. Their discovery was published on January 22, 2016 in the journal Science.
