Researchers Funded by the National MS Society Report Jumpstarting Myelin Repair and Restoring Functi

An experimental therapy succeeded in promoting the formation of nerve-insulating myelin and improving limb function in mice with an MS-like disease. The agent, miR-219, is a «microRNA,» a short segment of genetic material that is involved in turning on or off cell activity.
