Scientists at Ohio’s Case Western Reserve University say they’ve made a breakthrough in treating cerebral palsy – on a microscopic level, at least.

Researchers claim they’ve found a way to replicate so-called “myelinating cells” – cells with the essential protein myelin – in a way that benefits humans.

“The ability to produce functional cells that restore myelin in mice…provides a solid framework to produce analogous human cells,” said Robert Miller, vice-dean for research at the Case Western Reserve Medical School.
