The Schwann Cell and Action Potential This video demonstrates the development of myelin in the peripheral nervous system and the propagation of action potential along a myelinated axon. The video was completed by Marziah Karch as her 2008 sabbatical project from the script and voiceover of Professor Marilyn Shopper. This is close captioned, but in some cases a few of the words were left out to make it possible to read it at all.

Racing to the Cure for MS: Myelin Repair Foundation Celebrates MS Awareness Week This month many of you will be participating in activities to raise awareness among your individual communities about multiple sclerosis—its impact on your life and the lives of others you care about, and the state of scientific knowledge about the disease that may lead to treatments and cures. In spite of considerable investments by the federal government, non-profits and industry, the exact cause of MS remains unknown, there are no diagnostic laboratory tests available and there is no cure. I hope you will take a few minutes this month, as you get together with friends and family, to talk about myelin repair and the hope it offers so many with MS for whom immunosuppressant therapies alone have failed to hold the disease at bay. As recently as 7 or 8 years ago the prospect of myelin repair was pretty much science fiction. Over the last 4½ years, our team of collaborative scientists has demonstrated in animal models of MS that myelin repair is a viable therapeutic strategy for multiple sclerosis. And with your support, we are investing in validating those discoveries for commercial development and creating a new level of interest among biotech and pharmaceutical companies in myelin repair. In 2004, we set out, within five years, to partner with a biotech or pharmaceutical company to develop a myelin repair treatment based on the discoveries made by our collaborative scientific team. Today, as the worlds largest medical research organization with a singular focus on myelin ...

Happy Thanksgiving from the Myelin Repair Foundation Thanksgiving: a joyous holiday that is today synonymous with turkeys, pumpkin pie, and creating a new belt notch or showing up to dinner in stretchy pants. Outside of its historical and food related connections, the true meaning of Thanksgiving for many lies within its name giving thanks. For me, Thanksgiving and the end of the year makes me reflect on the previous months, appreciate the wonderful things that happened, and realize the trials and tribulations that I once felt consumed my life are now just an after note on an otherwise good year. I get excited for the possibility of a new year ahead, and look forward to making one more footprint on the remaining weeks of this one. Most importantly I give thanks for all that I have. Here at the Myelin Repair Foundation we have been doing a lot of reflecting as well. We look back at the last year, the last five years, and realize that our tremendous achievements (from funding more than 40 research projects, to our 24 new research tools, to merely being able to continue the pursuit of our mission of accelerating medical research) would not have been possible without the support of our donors, the interest of our followers, and the continued dedication of all of you. So on behalf of everyone at the MRF, thank you for all that you have done for us over the last five years! Without your support none of our success would have been possible, and we are truly grateful for all that you do.

How the Body Works : Anatomy of a Nerve Anatomy of a Nerve More than ten thousand million nerve cells and their fibers, or axons, make up the nervous system. The axons are grouped together in nerve trunks containing sensory fibers, which conduct information from the sensory organs to the central nervous system, and motor fibers, which carry information to the central nervous system of the body. The nerve fibers which carry information quickly are enclosed in a thick sheath made of the fatty substance myelin. They are called myelinated nerve fibers. The myelinated sheath has regular indentations along its length called the nodes of Ranvier. The nonmyelinated nerve fibers, which carry information slowly, are grouped together and enclosed in a single sheath. The anatomy of a nerve includes: the cell body, which is composed of cytoplasm and contains the cell nucleus; the nucleus, which contains the information needed to control the activity of the neuron; the dendrites, outgrowths of the cell body to which and from which they conduct impulses; the epineurium, a fibrous sheath that surrounds the whole nerve; the perineurium, the connective tissue sheath that surrounds bundles of nerve fibers; the endoneurium, the fine sheath of connective tissue around each nerve bundle; the axon, the extended fiber of the nerve cell which carries impulses to and from the cell body; the fatty myelin sheath, the insulating coat that separates the axon in a nerve bundle; the Schwann cell nucleus, the mechanism responsible for the ...

Myelin Repair Foundation on Stem Cell Research President Obama's lifting of federal restrictions on the use of embryonic stem cells in scientific research has generated considerable news coverage and many questions from our supporters about the impact of this reversal on our own research. Our most promising new stem cell investigations are on induced pluripotent stem cells (iPS), which are created by reverse-engineering cells from readily available skin samples. MRF COO Rusty Bromley has made this brief video about MRF's use of stem cells in myelin repair and the potential they offer for myelin repair in MS. Please send us your questions regarding MS and myelin repair research to info@ We will be creating more videos to answer YOUR questions.

What is Pharma's Interest in Myelin Repair? Mike Gresser, CSO at the Myelin Repair Foundation, discusses what the pharmaceutical industry's interest is in myelin repair. Previously, Pharma wasn't interested in myelin repair treatments but that is changing quickly. Currently there is a Biogen-IDEC has a molecule in development that modulates the Lingo protein. The Myelin Repair Foundation is working on finding more treatments to modulate myelination and demyelination which will hopefully attract interest from more Pharma companies.
