Researchers have identified a link between multiple sclerosis and a decreased level of specific gut bacteria. Additionally, the study reveals those who consume more meat may be at increased risk of developing the autoimmune disorder.
Hydroxychloroquine shows promise for reducing some of the debilitating systems associated with primary progressive multiple sclerosis, a new study reports.
The risk of developing mutliple sclerosis increases 32 fold following Epstein-Barr virus infection.
Researchers have identified high levels of three gut-produced toxic metabolites in plasma and cerebrospinal fluid samples of patients with multiple sclerosis.
Spending time enjoying the sunshine may help protect children and young adults from developing multiple sclerosis, a new study reports. Sun exposure boosts vitamin D levels and helps stimulate immune cells. Researchers report vitamin D may alter the biological function of immune cells, offering added protection against multiple sclerosis.
Walking exercise on a treadmill improves cognitive abilities, including learning and memory, and preserves hippocampal volume in people with relapse-remitting multiple sclerosis.
A unique subset of group 3 innate lymphoid cells spurs T cells to attack myelinated nerve fibers in mouse models of multiple sclerosis.
Cholesterol synthesis in nerve cells ensures the replenishment of newly myelin-forming cells. The findings could provide new treatment options for the treatment of disorders associated with myelin loss, such as multiple sclerosis.
Analyzing the gene activity of 66,000 cells from human brain tissue, researchers generated a comprehensive map of cell types associated with brain lesions in multiple sclerosis, and their gene expression patterns and interactions.
A new study links viral infections including mononucleosis and pneumonia experienced during adolescence with an increased risk of developing multiple sclerosis.
