Can cells be reprogrammed to battle multiple sclerosis?
Interview: Timothy Coetzee, M.D., chief research officer for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.
Multiple sclerosis is a chronic disease that affects the brain and spinal cord when the body’s immune system attacks myelin, a fatty substance that protects the nerves. Multiple sclerosis destroys the myelin coating and causes lesions in the brain. Timothy Coetzee, M.D., discusses the recent advances in multiple sclerosis research.
