Advanced Nerve Cell System Could Help Cure Diabetic Neuropathy, Related Diseases

ScienceDaily (2009-06-29) -- Researchers have created the first lab-grown motor nerves that are insulated and organized the same way they are in the body. The group's model system could dramatically improve understanding of the causes of myelin-related conditions such as multiple sclerosis, diabetic neuropathy and Guillian-Barré syndrome, potentially enabling the discovery and testing of new drug therapies. ... > read full article
