Myelin regrown in multiple sclerosis models

Per the UT:

“Ordinary skin cells have been directly converted into the myelinating cells destroyed in multiple sclerosis, according to two new papers in Nature Biotechnology.

This has huge potential and I really hope the research progresses well – MS is one of those diseases where there haven’t been a lot of breakthroughs yet. It seems like we are getting close and closer to true medical breakthroughs, like printed or grown/reseeded replacement parts and direct mapping of pharmaceuticals to an individuals genes.
