A new culprit for multiple sclerosis relapses

A molecule that helps blood clot may also play a role in multiple sclerosis relapses, researchers report in the May 6, 2019 issue of PNAS. The new research may help answer the mystery of why remissions happen, as well as find early markers of the disease. The research also shows a new way to study multiple sclerosis (MS) in mice that is closer to the human form of the disease.
