The crucial role of calcium ion channels...

<shortened url>

"Since mast cells are also known to contribute to the progression of several other debilitating diseases, including multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis and cancer, an inhibitor of the CRAC channel could, in the future, help in slowing the progression of these diseases as well as alleviate disease symptoms."

Surprise in Lab Helps ID Drug to Fight ALS

Not sure if this falls under gene therapy really, but seemed as good as place as any.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/01/24/AR2008012402485.html


"It is exciting not only from the standpoint of ALS, but also because of its implications for understanding basic cell biology. Rac1 is implicated in many cellular processes including cellular migration, proliferation and differentiation, and is an important component of inflammatory disease processes," team leader John Engelhardt, head of anatomy and cell biology at UI's Roy J. ...

gene therapy without viruses

Sounds promising for all types of gene therapy, no specific mention of MS.



Gene Therapy without Viruses: A new, highly effective polymer may make gene therapy safer.

Katherine Bourzac - Technology Review - The promise of gene therapy has long been held up by the lack of a safe and effective way to insert the desired therapeutic genes into the right cells. To solve that problem, MIT researchers have developed a new polymer for gene ...
