Researchers at the Karolinska Institutet, in Sweden, coated these vesicles with receptors that block pro-inflammatory molecules involved in MS. The potential therapy also may be an effective treatment for other inflammatory-related diseases, the scientists noted. The study, “Amelioration of systemic inflammation…
