These data show that sex steroids can protect the brain from demyelination and stimulate remyelination..... The positive hormonal influence on myelination in the CNS may be a future therapeutically strategy for the treatment of MS.
These findings show a direct neuroprotective effect of oestrogen receptor β ligand treatment on oligodendrocyte differentiation, myelination and axon conduction during experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis.
Around 85% have the relapsing/remitting form of the condition, in which "flare-ups" which cause disability, are followed by a recovery of a level of the lost physical function.
In this form of MS, there does appear to be some natural myelin repair
These results show that DHEA not only provides robust ischemic neuroprotection with a long therapeutic opportunity but also exerts neurotoxicity when administered during ischemia and early reperfusion, which points to the importance of administration timing of DHEA in the clinical treatment of brain damages by the transient brain ischemia including stroke.
