Mice With MS-Like Condition Walk Again After Human Stem Cell Treatment (image) University of Utah Health Sciences Share Print E-Mail Caption 1) Multiple sclerosis (MS) impairs nerve function by damaging myelin, an insulating layer that surrounds nerves. MS mice can't move well. 2) Human neural stem cells injected into MS mice stimulate the mouse's own cells to repair the damage. 3) Nerve cell function is restored. MS mice can walk and run.
