Could a nonprescription antifungal become a major advance for multiple sclerosis?

from Scientific American (blog)

In 2011, Paul Tesar, a professor at Case Western Reserve School of Medicine, worked with collaborators to come up with a method of producing massive numbers of mouse stem cells that are capable of turning into oligodendrocytes, the cells that produce myelin, the protective coating on nerve cells. One thing you can do with such a technique, assuming you can do the same thing with human cells, is to use biochemical legerdemain to restore the myelin lost in multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy and other disorders. But cell replacement therapies are still a work in progress—and may continue to be so for a long time more
