Multiple sclerosis can be reversed by endogenous stem cells; process aided by 2 potential drugs


Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic neurological disorder occurring among young adults. It results when the immune cells of the body destroy the protective coating called myelin present around the nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord.  A team at the Case Western Reserve University have used a new approach to create new myelin within the nervous system.  Drugs stimulate body’s own stem cells to replace the brain cells lost in multiple sclerosis.
