We conclude that the possible etiologies of demyelination include viral and/or immune-mediated factors similar to those seen in other demyelinating diseases, such as multiple sclerosis and Guillain-Barre syndrome.

Our initial product, Q-Cells[TM], is a cellular therapy using neural glial cells that we believe will provide the fastest route to restoring function in patients with demyelinating diseases and certain other neurodegenerative diseases," said Deborah Eppstein, Ph.
Suggests Potential Role in the Treatment of Multiple Sclerosis and Other Demyelinating Diseases
The innovation has applicability to a wide variety of diseases and injuries of the central nervous system including multiple sclerosis, white matter stroke, spinal cord injury, and other demyelinating diseases of the human central nervous system.
Developing the capability to derive oligodendrocyte-like cells is a major step forward because of the important role that oligodendrocyte cells are believed to have in restoring cell function in patients suffering from Multiple Sclerosis and other demyelinating diseases," said Yoram Drucker, Principal Executive Officer of BrainStorm.
