Studying mouse models of multiple sclerosis, scientists at the University of Geneva (UNIGE) have discovered exposure to cold redirects the body’s resources from the immune system to maintaining body heat, thereby decreasing the course of the disease.

The study is featured in an article in the journal Cell Metabolism titled, “Cold Exposure Protects from Neuroinflammation Through Immunologic Reprogramming.” The findings pave the way for utilizing a fundamental concept in biology of the allocation of bioenergy to treat autoimmune diseases.
