Hmmm...while this sounds exciting on the surface, it involves that poor MS mouse again and we already know the track record on initial discoveries with it.

The above quote comes from the published article. I wasn't aware that the docs had proven the MS patient's immune system caused all the problems!!

Interesting article. Maybe we will start to see some translational research for neurodegenerative diseases.
