Thanks to this community, Professor Kaylene Young and her team are close to realising a ground-breaking new MS therapy.

A new therapy replacing myelin lost to MS is coming closer each day thanks to the generosity of people like you.

Such a treatment has the potential to protect and repair the brain and spinal cord, which is the greatest unmet need for people living with MS.

The goal is to identify what messages the brain sends to cause people to develop MS, and investigate how the disease impacts brain function, to help create treatments that protect and even repair the brain.

The researchers are running a phase II clinical trial that would replace myelin in people with MS and evaluate the impact on their brain function.

This groundbreaking research could pave the way for the next big breakthrough across the globe.

Thanks for making it possible!
