MS Discovery Forum Reports on Tisch MS Development of Animal Model of Progressive Disease

Tuesday, December 17, 2013

The Multiple Sclerosis Discovery Forum features a new article on the work of Dr. Massimiliano Cristofanilli and his team at the Tisch MS Research Center of New York in developing the first animal model of progressive MS:

But what did surprise the team, Cristofanilli said, were the lesions they found in the brains of about 70% of the mice injected with PMS CSF. In contrast, only 14% of the mice injected with RRMS-CSF and none injected with control CSF developed lesions. The team plans to continue looking for signs of disease phenotype at later time points.

In related news, the abstract of Dr. Cristofanilli's presentation at the 2013 Society for Neuroscience conference is now available online.
