Thu, 22/01/2015 | CRC scientists discover new protection mechanism for nerve cells after they are damaged

CRC scientists from the University Medical Center Mainz, together with colleagues from the University of Virginia, have identified a new mechanism that mediates repair of nerve cells after damage to the central nervous system. Interleukin-4, a immune system secondary messenger produced by T cells, plays a key role here. The work has been published in a recent issue of the prestigious Journal of Clinical Investigation.

You can see the authors of the paper talk about there work in the following video.
