Publication: Teriflunomide treatment for multiple sclerosis modulates T cell mitochondrial respiration with affinity-dependent effects.
Muenster. For the first time scientists from the University of Münster could show that multiple sclerosis (MS) alters the energy metabolism of T cells during acute phases of disease exacerbation. Therapeutic interventions targeting the metabolism of activated T cells display new potential avenues for treatment of patients with MS affecting around 250,000 people in Germany. The […]...more

Publication: Calcium influx through plasma-membrane nanoruptures drives axon degeneration in a model of multiple sclerosis.
Munich.  Here SFB researchers from Munich use in vivo calcium imaging in a multiple sclerosis model to show that cytoplasmic calcium levels determine the choice between axon loss and survival. Calcium can enter the axon through nanoscale ruptures of the axonal plasma membrane that are induced in inflammatory lesions. Neuron doi: 10.1016/ j.neuron.2018.12.023...more

Thu, 12/12/2013 | CRC Retreat in Münster

Thank you to all who attended the CRC Retreat in Münster on 28-29.11.2013. It provided a great opportunity for CRC members to meet and be updated on the progress of all research projects with lively poster sessions, interesting talks and stimulating discussion.

Special thanks goes to our plenary speakers Prof. Dave Serreze (Jackson Laboratories, Maine), Dr. Amit Bar-Or (Montreal Neurological Institute and Hospital, McGill University) and Prof. Stefan Rose-John (University of Kiel), who traveled a long distances to present their fascinating research to us.

And finally, a very big thank you to Dr. Nicholas Schwab for organizing such a successful meeting.
