Transplanted brain cells repair MS damage in mice

Published on:

When researchers transplanted specific human brain cells into animal models of multiple sclerosis and other white matter diseases, the cells repaired damage and restored function, according to a new study.

The study provides one of the final pieces of scientific evidence necessary to advance this treatment strategy to clinical trials.

“These findings demonstrate that through the transplantation of human glial cells, we can effectively achieve remyelination in the adult brain,” says lead author Steve Goldman, professor of neurology and neuroscience at the University of Rochester Medical Center and co-director of the Center for Translational Neuromedicine.

“These findings have significant therapeutics
