University of Alberta discovers MS breakthrough
from Toronto Sun
Increasing steroids in the brains of multiple sclerosis patients may regress and possibly even cure the disease, researchers at the University of Alberta said. "We discovered that the genes that were responsible for making neurosteroids were suppressed (in MS patients)," said Dr. Chris Power, neurologist and researcher at the U of A. MS attacks the brain and spinal cord, causing inflammation and damage that can lead to paralysis and sometimes blindness.
