A Topical Treatment for MS

StemCellsNature recently published research from Case Western Reserve University noting mice with multiple sclerosis models have responded positively to systematic administration of athlete’s foot and eczema medications resulting in “stimulating the regeneration of damaged brain cells and reversing paralysis.” This study’s intent was to successfully direct the body’s own stem cells to heal the brain in multiple sclerosis. Rather than slowing the progression of MS, the goal is to “create new myelin within the nervous system.” Instead of transplanting stem cells as is currently being studied, this approach actually uses one’s own stem cells with new directions for regeneration. 727 different medications were tested with two showing great promise. “It was a striking reversal of disease severity in the mice.” (Dr. Robert Miller)
