Re: hyaluronic acid

Just to qualify further, hyaluronidase is actually related to Hyluranic Acid in the fact that it is an enzyme which is found in patients with MS. By utilizing Hyaluronidase, it promotes myelin-forming cell differentiation and remyelination with the MS-like disease and leads to improving nerve cell function.

Dr. Sherman's study is not appropriate for people, but animals only at this time; and is being done to try to prove both efficacy and safety in the use of Hyalunonidase. By targeting or inhibiting this enzyme, there may be a way to prevent brain and spinal cord damage from demylination.

Its exciting research, but its no where near close to an answer- it will take as long as 25 years before the use of Hyaluronidase is (if it is ever) approved by the FDA for use on humans.
