Rogue Protein Implicated in Multiple Sclerosis

Scientists have made a breakthrough discovery in understanding multiple sclerosis (MS), a disease that attacks the central nervous system. In a study published in Frontiers in Neurology, researchers from the University of Surrey have found a misfolded, or “rogue” protein in MS.
