Study could help in fight against multiple sclerosis

A researcher with the University of Nebraska Medical Center has received a grant from the National Multiple Sclerosis Society to study the effectiveness of a drug that could inhibit multiple sclerosis.

Dr. Kalipada Pahan, an associate professor in the UNMC College of Dentistry, is the recipient of the $274,000, three-year grant.

Pahan said the drug Gemfibrozil, commonly known as Lopid, has been shown to disable nitric oxide production in the brain.
