Precision With Stem Cells a Step Forward for Treating Multiple Sclerosis, Other Diseases, University of Rochester Medical Center Study



10/14/2011 7:38:05 AM

Scientists have improved upon their own previous world-best efforts to pluck out just the right stem cells to address the brain problem at the core of multiple sclerosis and a large number of rare, fatal children's diseases. Details of how scientists isolated and directed stem cells from the human brain to become oligodendrocytes -- the type of brain cell that makes myelin, a crucial fatty material that coats neurons and allows them to signal effectively -- were published online and in the October issue of Nature Biotechnology by scientists at the University of Rochester Medical Center and the University at Buffalo.
