Possible novel therapy for Multiple Sclerosis discovered

Semaphorin 4D (SEMA4D) is a viable target for therapy in neuroinflammatory and neurodegenerative diseases like multiple sclerosis (MS), according to findings published in Neurobiology of Disease.

Researchers from Vaccinex, Inc. in Rochester, New York conducted a study of mouse models of experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE) – a surrogate for human MS – in order to determine if SEMA4D or any specific novel molecular therapy would make a viable target. The investigators created a monoclonal antibody ...

Study Hints Gut Microbiome Plays A Role in MS

Study Hints Gut Microbiome Plays A Role in Multiple Sclerosis

Boston—The gastrointestinal tract may seem like an odd place to look for insight
into a neurologic disease, but a small study has identified an association between
two types of bacteria found in the gut and the development of multiple sclerosis.

Study reveals new emotional challenges faced by MS patients

Multiple Sclerosis (MS) patients are less able to regulate their emotions and have a poorer quality of life than people who don't have the disease, according to research carried out at the University of Aberdeen.

MS currently affects around 100,000 people in the UK and Scotland has one of the highest incidences of the disease in the world. While usually considered to be primarily a disease that affects movement, there are high instances of emotion ...

Pathological mechanisms in progressive multiple sclerosis

Summary
A better understanding of the pathological mechanisms that drive neurodegeneration in individuals with multiple sclerosis is needed to develop therapies that will effectively treat patients in the primary and secondary progressive stages of the disease. We propose that the inflammatory demyelinating disease process in early multiple sclerosis triggers a cascade of events that lead to neurodegeneration and are amplified by pathogenic mechanisms related to brain ageing and accumulated disease burden. Key elements driving neurodegeneration ...
