New research indicates a link at the cellular level to multiple sclerosis.
A new cellular mechanism that may cause multiple sclerosis has been discovered by researchers. The finding represents a major new discovery towards finding the cause of multiple sclerosis (MS), potentially paving the way for research to investigate new treatments.
Multiple sclerosis affects around 2.5 million people around the world. Typically, people are diagnosed in their 20s and 30s, and it is more common in women than men. Professor Paul Eggleton, of the University of Exeter Medical School, said:
“Multiple sclerosis can have a devastating impact on people’s lives, affecting mobility, speech, mental ability and more. So far, all medicine can offer is treatment and therapy for the symptoms – as we do not yet know the precise causes, research has been limited. Our exciting new findings have uncovered a new avenue for researchers to explore. It is a critical step, and in time, we hope it might lead to effective new treatments for MS.”
