ONE of the outstanding characteristics of multiple sclerosis and other clinical and experimental diseases associated with demyelination, is the tendency to remit. Although there is good evidence that an important cause of functional loss in such conditions is conduction block produced by the selective destruction of the myelin sheath1, the mechanisms underlying remission are unknown2. It has long been recognised that in certain experimental lesions demyelinated central axons can be remyelinated… CONTINUE READING
