A new promising study for MS

“Researchers from the Case Western Reserve School of Medicine just announced that they have developed a new technique which converts skin cells into oligodendrocyte-producing stem cells. According to them, the technique enables the “on demand” production of oligodendrocytes and has the potential to help patients suffering from diseases caused by myelin degeneration, like multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy and rare genetic disorders known as leukodystrophies”.
