How a Brain Molecule Could Halt Multiple Sclerosis

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, neuroscience

Summary: Injecting the brain molecule into mouse models of multiple sclerosis increased the number of oligodendrocytes. The findings suggest fractalkine may help to slow the progression, or potentially halt multiple sclerosis.
