Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0164240A2] A method for promoting the expression of myelin or Protein Zero in Schwann cells using Zcyto7 or IL-17. Zcyto7 or IL-17 are further used to promote myelination of the peripheral nervous system. This is particularly useful in treating diseases dymyelinating diseases such as diabetic neuropathy, Guillain-Barre' Syndrome, chronic demyelinating disease, acute demyelinating polyneuropathy and human immunodeficiency viral demyelinating neuropathy or demyelination caused by trauma.
