Motor nerve model could help cure multiple sclerosis, diabetic neuropathy
Posted Jul 22 2009 11:13pm
Washington, July 22 : In what may lead to cures for diabetic neuropathy and help further understanding of multiple sclerosis and related conditions, researchers at the UniversityofCentralFlorida
(UCF) have for the first time designed a model motor nerve system that''s insulated and organized like the human body.
MS, diabetic neuropathy, and other conditions caused by a loss of myelin insulation around nerves can be debilitating and even deadly, but adequate treatments do not yet exist. That''s in large part because of deficiencies in model research systems.
