    Despite setbacks and controversy, promising research is underway.

    Dec. 11, 2006 issue - Seventeen years ago, Richard Burt, an immunologist at Northwestern University, had a crazy idea. What if he could press the "restart" button on his patients, destroying their faulty immune systems and building them new ones?

        Manouli,

        I am trying to figure that out, just like everyone else. We need to try and figure out who will benefit the most from emerging remyelination therapies.
