Growth Factor in Stem Cells May Spur Recovery from Multiple Sclerosis

Science Daily: Researchers at Case Western Reserve are making more progress in the fight against MS. A research team led by neuroscientist Robert H. Miller, PhD, and biologist Arnold Caplan, PhD, has discovered that a substance in human mesenchymal stem cells that promotes growth seems to encourage restoration of nerves in biologic models of MS. “The importance of this work is we think we’ve identified the driver of recover,” Miller said.
