    In what they describe to the press as a "life-changer" for millions of people with the disease, researchers in the US report this week a study where they discovered blocking an enzyme in the brain may help repair the damage associated with multiple sclerosis (MS), and other brain diseases.

    The findings are due to be published online this week in the Annals of Neurology.

    Myelin Damage
    In MS, the protective sheath or myelin around nerve fibers is damaged or destroyed, disrupting the ability of nerve cells to communicate with each other. This process, called demyelination, is what causes the range of sensory, movement and cognitive problems typical of the disease.

      Hmmm...hyaluronidase...the enzyme the article talks about blocking is (according to google) routinely injected by plastic surgeons to deal with things like baggy eyelids.

        I remember someone talking about this in Irvine. It has to be an altered compound of this because the human body and this enzyme do not get along for very long at all.

        But the researchers are looking at many things to either stop deterioration or things that block the ability for the body to repair itself. Very promising research.
