Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
A peptide that could treat multiple sclerosis caused no neurotoxicity or cardiotoxic effects in zebrafish, a study has shown.
Mark Mortenson, CSO of Clene Nanomedicine, discusses the use of proprietary gold nanocrystals as catalysts to prevent the progression of, and act as a treatment for, neurodegenerative disease.
Dr H. Michael Shepard, CEO and CSO of Enosi Life Sciences, discusses the similarities between cancer and autoimmune diseases, highlighting how this knowledge could be used to enhance treatments.
Researchers suggest that identifying new treatments for autoimmune diseases requires studying the immune system AND target tissues together.
Researchers have prevented immune cells from attacking myelin in mice, which stopped the progression of multiple sclerosis (MS).
When delivered intranasally, the anti-inflammatory drug VX-765 prevented axon demyelination and loss in a murine model of multiple sclerosis (MS).
Dimethyl fumarate (DMF), a multiple sclerosis (MS) drug, inhibited SARS-CoV-2 replication and the hyper-inflammatory immune response associated with COVID-19.
Researchers have discovered how Tregs can reduce spinal cord injury caused by diseases like multiple sclerosis (MS).
Regulatory T cells (Tregs) play a key role in regulating our immune system and inflammatory processes. Sangamo Therapeutics is evaluating the potential of CAR-Tregs (Tregs genetically modified with a chimeric antigen receptor, or CAR) for the development of therapies for immunological diseases, such as Crohn’s disease and multiple sclerosis, as…
In this article, Aparajita Dubey discusses the role of antibodies in regulating the immune system and highlights key features that need to be considered for drug development and how this can be applied to cancer therapy.
Which immune cells contribute towards immune-induced neurodegeneration and how could this knowledge enable conditions such Alzheimer’s and multiple sclerosis to be treated?
Ursolic acid was shown to halt the progression of chronic multiple sclerosis (MS) and reverse the damage already caused in a mouse model of the disease.
Researchers observed that deleting the IRE1-alpha gene caused beta cells to de-differentiate and then re-differentiate in mice, preventing immune system auto-activation.
Research into age-related chronic inflammatory disorders has identified an ‘off switch’ on the NLRP3 inflammasome that could be targeted in new therapies.
