Description Optic neuritis is the most common clinical manifestation of multiple sclerosis. Axonal damage and neuronal loss lead to permanent neurological disability in patients and its animal model, experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE). Presently, treatments of this condition aim to reduce inflammation without showing any neuroprotection. Resveratrol is a natural polyphenol found in red wine with neuroprotective effects but poor solubility in water. Thus, a novel nanoparticle formulation of resveratrol was developed and assessed in a mouse model of EAE.
