Study May Help Pave Way to Cell Therapy for MS Patients, Researchers Say

Scientists at the New York Stem Cell Foundation (NYSCF) Research Institute reportedly generated induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells lines from skin samples of patients with primary progressive multiple sclerosis (MS) and developed a protocol to induce the stem cells into becoming oligodendrocytes.


Study Results May Hold Promise For Brain Trauma Treatment

Results observed in an animal model reveal hidden differences in the properties of neural circuits that may account for whether animals are behaviorally susceptible to brain injury, and may also hold promise in the treatment for brain trauma, according to researchers at the Neuroscience Institute at Georgia State University.
