Substance loss related to nervous system complications can be reversed by steroidsScientists from the University of Illinois have reported that steroids can be more than just useful for reducing inflammation. It was disclosed that use of steroids can lead to reversal of a loss of myelin, which is a major problem in multiple sclerosis and other demyelinating diseases and injuries associated with the central and peripheral nervous systems.

It was further reported that steroids dexamethasone and progesterone can actually signal the initiation and dramatically increases in context of the rate of myelin synthesis.

The new findings were published in a biochemistry section of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
