[Source: ScienceDaily] – Scientists at Barrow Neurological Institute have recently made discoveries about a type of cell that may limit inflammation in the central nervous system (CNS) — a finding that could have important implications in the treatment of brain disorders such as multiple sclerosis.

The research, led by Barrow’s Fu-Dong Shi, MD, PhD, was published in the August 2010 issue of The Journal of Experimental Medicine, and simultaneously highlighted in Nature.
