New Method Isolates Best Brain Stem Cells to Treat MS

Article summary

-- A precise method has been developed that prospectively isolates just the stem cells that can treat multiple sclerosis and childhood diseases caused by the brain's inability to make myelin.

 --After analzying genes in different stem cell types, the scientists searched for and found the genes that were most likely to differentiate into stem cells that make myelin.

--The human stem cells were then successfully injected into the brains of mice with MS. --The new method brings the prospect of clinical trials that much closer, the scientists say.
