If it's on your mind and it has to do with multiple sclerosis in any way, post it here.

Spinal cord research

Not MS, but relates to scarring so could be relevant in the future.

I wanted to see if the "preliminary tests" were in humans or mice, so I searched google scholar and found a reference to this in mice, all the way back in 2002.

Chondroitinase ABC promotes functional recovery after spinal cord injury.

Even this one in 2007 is on mice. i hope, with induced spinal injuries and all.

I think this could be very relevant to people with spinal lesions, since lesions are scars, after all.
