Scientists have successfully regenerated myelin in the brains of mice with Multiple Sclerosis. The stem cells were able to home in on areas of recent damage, and convert into oligodendrocytes – cells that manufacture myelin. This doesn’t solve the problem of getting stem cells to peripheral nerves, but it’s another step in the right direction.
