Posted on May 2nd, 2012 by

U.S. researchers have discovered that neutralizing an enzyme can slow multiple sclerosis in mice. Scientists at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., found the enzyme Kallikrein 6 was present in abundance in MS lesions and blood samples. As well, it is associated with inflammation and demyelination in other neurodegenerative diseases.
