I wonder if this research also applies to peripheral neuropathy, where nerves in the arms and legs gradually lose their ability to transmit impulses.

OMG! This is such good news. I was recently diagnosed with a peripheral neuropathy similar to MS, called CIDP ( chronic immunological Demyelinating neuropathy) , which is an imitator of MS, also. many of the very expensive treatments are the same. They are both Autoimmune diseases.
Remyelination of the nerve sheath is slow and touchy, and the autoimmune disease will often eat the new myelin right off the nerves, then causing scarring which complicates matters and prevents healing. Those are the plagues seen in MS
This is indeed good news for me, as I need to be up and running for my tiny grandchildren who need me so. I am overjoyed! Merci, gracias, vielen danke!
