Related Areas of Research

There are other diseases, while seemingly unrelated to multiple sclerosis (MS) and transverse myelitis (TM), share some immunological or pathological features. Thus collaborations with researchers who study these other conditions and diseases are critical to understanding the disease processes as well as identifying new targets for treatments.

Although the main focus of Project RESTORE has been on research of TM and MS, other areas of research have been originated by PR investigators. A promising area of research on neuroimmunological mechanisms of diseases such as autism, neurodevelopmental disorders and AIDS related neurological disorders may provide also clues for understanding the role of immune system involvement in brain diseases.
