Myelin damage can also occur with alcoholism, liver damage, and electrolyte imbalances hypoxic-ischemic demyelination occurs due to a lack of oxygen or vascular disease in the brain. Besides, myelin damage also can results in neurodegenerative diseases such as parkinson's disease, alzheimer's disease and stroke factors such as immune response, virus infection, nutritional disorders, hypoxia and other factors may damage the myelin and induce conduction block. Multiple sclerosis (ms) is referred to as an immune-mediated disease which affects the central nervous system (cns) while certain specialists believe ms is an autoimmune disease, other specialists disagree, because it is unknown which specific part of the immune system is being attacked by the disease. Thermotropic behaviour of myelin from multiple sclerosis affected brain the thermotropic properties of these membranes and myelin membrane from brains unaffected by neurological disease were measured with a differential scanning calorimeter and compared.

The attack of the immune system to the neural myelins at the time of the attack of the patient leads to disorders in the nerve conduction parkinson's disease. A demyelinating disease is any disease of the nervous system in which the myelin sheath of neurons is damaged this damage impairs the conduction of signals in the affected nerves.

Myelin, formed by oligodendrocytes (ols) in the cns, is critical for axonal functions, and its damage leads to debilitating neurological disorders such as multiple sclerosis understanding the molecular mechanisms of myelination and the pathogenesis of human myelin disease has been limited partly by. Webmd explains myelin sheath, a sleeve that protects a part of your nerve cells, and how it's related to multiple sclerosis a disease that causes your immune system to attack your central. Multiple sclerosis (ms) is an inflammatory disease in which the body's own immune system attacks the central nervous system, damaging the myelin — the covering, or insulation, of certain nerves in the body.
