My daughter sent me an email regarding research being done at the Anne Rowling Regenerative Neurology Clinic in Edinburgh annerowlingclinic.com/home.... Researchers there are looking at Myelin repair and have found that a protein inside cells, known as Activin-A, could be targeted as a way to repair damage to myelin.
They studied laboratory models of demyelination to try and discover more about how remyelination happens. They found that when Activin-A production was blocked, it stopped oligodendroyctes (myelin making cells) producing the myelin that is needed to repair the damaged sheath!
Therefore looking at a treatment to stimulate Activin-A to encourage repair of myelin in body!
Has anyone heard of this and if this is done elsewhere as I live down south and would be interested in any trail clinics being held?
