Researchers have made a step forward in treating nerve cells damaged in spinal cord injuries, using guinea pig tissues.
Grants worth £4 million have just been announced for 13 science projects that aim to minimise the use of laboratory animals and improve their welfare.
The process of nerve cell degeneration in multiple sclerosis (MS) can be reversed, according to new research in mice.
Unlocking a key messenger protein in the body’s defences could be a first step to new treatments for multiple sclerosis (MS) and other autoimmune diseases, suggest studies in mice with a form of the disease.
Scientists have successfully guided mouse stem cells to become specialised cells that build a protective coat around neurons.
Scientists have found a way to reverse the devastating effects of multiple sclerosis (MS) in mice.
Liver cells that mimic inherited liver diseases, produced from human skin cells, may offer the chance to regenerate damaged tissues and organs.
Scientists have isolated the chemical responsible for the treatment of multiple sclerosis in mice using stem cells and uncovered the mechanism through which it acts.
A drug currently used to treat Parkinson’s disease can repair the nerve damage caused by multiple sclerosis, research using rats and mice has shown.
