  • remyelination
  • Myelin sheath repair is regarded as a crucial problem to be addressed by MS researchers, because they believe that remyelination could alleviate many of the symptoms that MSers experience. (shift.ms)
  • The team's findings reinforce the idea that thin myelin sheaths are a valid, persistent marker of remyelination, a hypothesis challenged by other recent research. (technologynetworks.com)
  • A new drug with the potential to induce remyelination, the process for restoring and repairing the myelin sheath. (endece.com)
  • thus
  • Thus, by controlling the spatial and localized activation of actin polymerization, myosin II regulates SC polarization and OL branching, and by extension their ability to form myelin. (rupress.org)
  • wraps
  • A myelin sheath is a fatty casing that wraps around neurons and works in a way that is, at the least, metaphorically like a MOSFET, and at the most, very much like a MOSFET. (blogspot.com)
  • Duncan
  • As the only biomarker of myelin repair available this would leave us without any means of identifying or quantifying myelin repair," explains Ian Duncan, an expert on demyelinating diseases at the UW-Madison School of Veterinary Medicine and the senior author of the new study.

  • The purpose of the study, says Duncan, was to confirm that thin myelin sheaths persisted and supported normal neurologic function. (technologynetworks.com)
