The purpose of this study was to examine the roles played by astrocytes in a case of rapidly progressive multiple sclerosis (MS). Within early-active and active lesions, hypertrophic astrocytes played an important role in lesion pathology through the phagocytosis of myelin and axonal debris and through the internalization of other glial cells, including… CONTINUE READING
