Age-connected decline of remyelination process might be reversible New research highlights the chance of reversing ageing in the central nervous system for multiple sclerosis patients. The study is published today, 06 January, in the journal Cell Stem Cell. As we grow older, our bodies’ capability to regenerate reduces. This is simply not only true for our skin but also accurate for other tissues in the body, like the regenerative processes in the brain. For diseases which often span several decades and so are affected by regenerative processes, such as multiple sclerosis, this may have massive implications. In multiple sclerosis, the insulating layers that protect nerve fibres in the mind, known as myelin sheaths, become broken.The analysis was coordinated by teams at the University of Cape Town, South Africa, and the populace Wellness Research Institute at Hamilton Wellness Sciences and McMaster University, Canada. The steering committee designed the analysis, oversaw its carry out, wrote the manuscript, and made the decision to submit it for publication. An unbiased trial monitoring committee monitored the trial for basic safety and efficacy.
