Nerve tissue scars associated with multiple sclerosis (MS) show marked differences from those of similar neurodegenerative disorders, according to a recent study. MS-associated inflammation causes brain and spinal cord lesions (nerve tissue scarring) that often are bigger and last longer than those of two other demyelinating diseases: myelin oligodendrocyte glycoprotein antibody associated disorder (MOGAD), and aquaporin-4 antibody positive neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorder (AQP4-NMOSD).
