Brain creatine in multiple sclerosis

Paper in MSRD

Creatine plays a pivotal role in brain bioenergetics, acting as a temporal and spatial energy buffer, energy transducer, and metabolic regulator. A low cerebral creatine concentration illustrating energy depletion has been routinely observed in various neuropathologies, including cerebrovascular diseases, brain neoplasms, inborn disorders of creatine metabolism, and age-related conditions. White matter disorders, however, appear to encounter a different dynamics in brain creatine variation that could be potentially useful in the disease screening and prognosis.
