Myelin repair

To stop MS we need to find treatments that repair the damage to the protective myelin coating around nerves. This will compliment treatments that aim to stop immune attacks and protect nerves from damage.

We’re investing in 13 myelin repair projects, including our world-class research centres in Cambridge and Edinburgh that are working to do just that.

It’s still early days, but we’re starting to see treatments that repair myelin being tested in clinical trials.
