Treating the demyelinated multiple scelerosis lesions with high does x-ray microbeams

Common autoimmune disorders affect the central nervous system. An approximate 3 million people globally deal with a on growing cell dilemma. There is no known cure for multiple sclerosis.

Multiple sclerosis is an autoimmune disease of the central nervous system. This disease targets myelin, an insulation lipid layer responsible of coating our axons. Axons are detrimental because they serve as key factors of the functioning nervous system. Often the symptoms are specific nerves being inflamed. This is seen through the disrupt of optic nerve which then results in a vision loss. Muscle weakness, trouble with sensation and coordination or pain are all key indicators of a attack in the central nervous system. The cells destroyed for maintaining myelin cause a natural slow rate of breakdown.

Oligodendrocytes are responsible in producing and maintaining myelin. Attaining an approach to sustaining cell life, an approach through irradiation of remyelination with parallel thin, x rays called microbeams. Microbeam x rays are targeting means in which myelin is destroyed but don't cause long term damage to any tissue.
