Neuromyelitis optica is an inflammatory disease characterized by selective demyelination of the spinal cord and optic nerves. Discover the latest research on neuromyelitis optica here.
Acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM) is a rare inflammatory demyelinating disease of the central nervous system. Discover the latest research on acute disseminated encephalomyelitis here.
Acute hemorrhagic leukoencephalitis is a rare form of acute disseminated encephalomyelitis characterized by acute inflammation in the brain and spinal cord that causes demyelination and bleeding. It is often fatal, although treatment with immunosuppressives and plasma exchange can be helpful. Find the latest research on acute hemorrhagic leukoencephalitis here.
Central Pontine Myelinolysis is a neurologic disorder caused most frequently by rapid correction of hyponatremia and is characterized by demyelination that affects the central portion of the base of the pons. Here is the latest research on this disease.
Demyelinating diseases result in damage to the myelin sheath that surrounds nerves in the brain and spinal cord and can result in neurological conditions such as multiple sclerosis. Here is the latest research on demyelinating disorders of the central nervous system.
A healthy and balanced diet is essential for controling diseases such as multiple sclerosis. Here are the latest discoveries pertaining to diet and this disease.
Diffuse myelinoclastic sclerosis is a rare neurodegenerative disorder characterized by pseudotumoral demyelinating lesions. It is sometimes considered a variant of multiple sclerosis while others classify it a distinct disease. Find the latest research on diffuse myelinoclastic sclerosis here.
Experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis is a commonly used animal model for autoimmune central nervous system diseases, most notably multiple sclerosis. Here is the latest research on experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis.
Microglia are resident macrophages of the CNS. They play a role in scavenging the CNS for plaques, phagocytosis, and extracellular signaling. Here is the latest research on their role in CNS diseases.
Multiple Sclerosis is a demyelinating autoimmune disease of the central nervous system. Symptoms include optic neuritis and motor weakness. Discover the latest research on Multiple Sclerosis with this feed.
Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is the most common chronic inflammatory disease of the central nervous system which is characterized by inflammatory demyelination and neurodegeneration. Here is the latest research MS and aging.
