MS and Cancer

I heard, that occurrence of cancer is much lower at people with ms. But I personally think, it´s nonsense, isn´t it? Can it have some scientific explanation? Is there any paper on this topic? Do not you know?

Precursor Schwann cells better for transplant.

Schwann cells are the myelin producing cells of the peripheral nervous system. Attempts have been made to transplant them into the central nervous system, but without much success. Using more immature Schwann cells, however, might be a way of overcoming some of the problems and raises an intriguing possibility: Schwann cells are not attacked during the MS disease process, so one day it might even be possible to remyelinate axons before the disease is cured, ...
