MEASURE MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS PROGRESSION WITH A CUTTING-EDGE TECHNIQUE

Multiple sclerosis is an inflammatory disease of the nervous central system leading to a progressive destruction of the myelin sheath surrounding the axons, essential for their protection and for the transmission of the nerve impulse. Bruno Stankoff and Catherine Lubetzki’s team developed a cutting-edge imaging technique which makes possible to visualize neuron demyelination and remyelination and to quantify their degeneration. These results, published in Annals of Neurology, open the way to better treatment for patients and to the evaluation of novel remyelination therapies.
