Áreas de inflamación en una zona gris del cerebro

MS has traditionally been thought of as a condition that mainly affects the white matter of the brain. Recently this notion has been challenged and now research has uncovered a potentially important disease process in the grey matter.

Un nuevo mapa cambia la comprensión de las células inmunitarias del cerebro

A new international study has mapped a type of immune cell, the microglia, in the human and mouse brain for the first time. Microglia are thought to play a role in the progression of MS. This research has changed the understanding of how these cells function, and has important implications for MS.

El bloqueo de los vasos linfáticos del cerebro reduce los síntomas de la EM

A new study has found that blocking the brain lymphatic vessels reduced MS-like illness in a laboratory model

'Anillos de fuego': impiden la muerte de las células cerebrales en la EM

A new study that suggests inflammation may lead to the death of brain cells in MS may have identified a drug that could block this process.

Una nueva investigación demuestra que la pérdida de tejido cerebral sigue una secuencia predecible

A study from MSIF McDonald fellow Dr Eshaghi has shown that brain tissue loss, or atrophy, occurs in ’stages’ and follows a predictable order.

Los cambios en el volumen cerebral pueden ser un indicador clave para la progresión de la EM

New research suggests the rate of brain atrophy, or brain shrinkage, may be an important indicator of disease progression in MS.

Descubrir cómo las células inmunitarias llegan al cerebro en la EM

Study reveals important mechanism that allows immune cells to attack myelin in MS

¿La conmoción cerebral aumenta el riesgo de EM?

What’s behind the media reports on concussion and MS?
