Metabolomic Profiling Identifies Taurine as New MS Therapeutic

News

New research suggests that administering taurine, a molecule naturally produced by human cells, could boost the effectiveness of current multiple sclerosis (MS) therapies. The discovery also highlights the potential for a technique called “metabolomic profiling,” which can identify useful endogenous metabolites the body already makes in small quantities, such as taurine, for new applications in drug therapies.
