MS: High-strength MRI may predict disease progression

Researchers used a powerful MRI scanner to monitor people with multiple sclerosis and found a link between the total volume of cortical lesions and neurological disability. Researchers were able to detect previously unidentified MS lesions in the brain using a powerful MRI scanner. Their study reveals that the development of lesions in the brain’s cortical […]

Stem cell transplant slows down MS progression

A preliminary clinical trial shows that stem cell transplantation, along with a tolerable dose of chemotherapy, is safe and more effective at slowing down multiple sclerosis than other existing therapies. Scientists were able to slow down MS progression in a new clinical trial using stem cell transplantation. Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic neurodegenerative condition […]

MS: Immune cells from the gut reduce brain inflammation

A type of immune cell that migrates from the gut to the brain appears to reduce inflammation in multiple sclerosis, according to recent research. Migrating immune cells may reduce brain inflammation in multiple sclerosis, according to a new study. Scientists have found that by increasing numbers of the immune cells, they could completely eradicate neuroinflammation […]
