A Breakthrough in Treating Multiple Sclerosis

By Molly Clifton

A small, early study of multiple sclerosis patients is showing very promising results.

With MS, the body’s immune system attacks “myelin” – the protective sheath around the nerves.

That results in symptoms ranging from numbness to paralysis.

Now researchers in chicago are testing a new injection that uses billions of white blood cells and myelin antigens.

They say the therapy safely stopped the patients’ autoimmune response to myelin by up to 75 percent.
