Scientists in the U.K. are making progress understanding multiple sclerosis.
A British scientist could have made one of the most important medical breakthroughs of recent years.
Dr Su Metcalfe and her team at LIFNano believe they have found the cure for the devastating condition, multiple sclerosis .
More than 2.3million people globally are affected by the debilitating condition and symptoms include blindness and muscle weakness.
Dr Metcalfe told the Cambridge News : “Some people get progressive MS, so go straight to the severe form of the disease, but the majority have a relapsing or remitting version,” she says.
“It can start from the age of 30, and there’s no cure, so all you can do is suppress the immune response, but the drugs that do that have side effects, and you can’t repair the brain. The cost of those drugs is very high, and in the UK there are a lot of people who don’t get treated at all.”
