Do you know multiple sclerosis? Taurine can repair the damaged cells of this rare disease
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a kind of autoimmune disease and there is currently no cure for it, but some medications may be used to promote myelin regeneration to reduce the recurrence of MS. A recent study published in Nature Chemical Biology found that taurine, a metabolite of human cells, can improve the effectiveness of MS treatment.
Taurine helps to promote cell maturation
The remission of MS symptoms depends on the process of remyelination. Scientists at the Institute of Squillies (TSRI) found that the combination of taurine and existing MS drugs helped to stimulate the process of “remyelination”, which is essential for the repair of multiple sclerosis neurons.”This may be a therapeutic mechanism,” said Luke Lairson, Ph.D., assistant professor of chemistry for TSRI and co-senior author of the study.Cell analysis and subsequent experimental results show that the endogenous metabolite – taurine, although it can not induce the maturation of oligodendrocyte precursor cells, but when combined with benzophenone or miconazole drugs, it can play a certain role.
