Oxysterols and cholesterol precursors correlate to magnetic resonance imaging measures of neurodegeneration in multiple sclerosis

Conclusions: These results confirm that cholesterol homeostasis is disturbed in MS and suggest that changes in cholesterol synthesis are related to neurodegenerative pathological processes as seen on the MRI. The data seem to be in line with the recently reported observation that high dose statins may have a positive effect on clinical disability in secondary progressive MS. (Source: Multiple Sclerosis)
