New research offers hope that Multiple Sclerosis patients can one day get back lost function.

With MS, the body’s immune system attacks myelin, the protective sheath around the nerves, leaving them exposed and damaged.

Symptoms range from numbness to paralysis.

Now, researchers in the United Kingdom found that certain immune cells can help regenerate myelin.

Researchers hope their findings will lead to new drug therapies.
