January 6, 2015
Lancet Neurology picked its top choices for studies published during 2014. Among them are:
A study from the University College of London and other institutions suggesting that a particular gene may influence nervous system injury in people with the primary progressive form of MS;
A study by a team at the University of California, Los Angeles, suggesting that sex chromosomes may influence the degree of nervous system injury from immune attacks in mice (funded by the National MS Society); and
A recent effort to fine-tune descriptions of MS by the International Advisory Committee on Clinical Trials in MS, jointly supported by the National MS Society and the European Committee for Treatment and Research in MS.
