miRNA dysregulation as the source of the disease

Micro-RNA (miRNA) has been proposed as a biomarker of axon degeneration, but some authors have proposed that they could be the source of the disease:

"The etiology of the disease remains unclear but the recent discovery of a dysregulated miRNA network in both cells and extracellular fluids of MS patients has brought new insights on the pathophysiological mechanisms involved in this disorder. miRNAs can induce a T cell polarization towards a pathological Th17 or Th1 phenotype and a deleterious activation of microglia, the CNS-resident macrophages"
