Common Anti-Oxidant May Help Slow MS Progression

Multiple sclerosis is a debilitating condition that currently has no cure available. The best that most medications can do is slow down or halt is progression temporarily. But researchers are trying to know more about the disease and how to battle it from different fronts. They are also discovering other ways to halt its progression. […]

Some scientists believe that multiple sclerosis risk can be reduced or even prevented by regular physical activity. But a recent finding suggests that regular exercise is not effective as a preventative measure for developing the said disease. The results are published in the journal Neurology. There are a number of risk factors that are associated […]

Link Between Gut Bacteria and MS Seen

More and more researchers are looking into bacteria that thrive in the stomach and its possible link to certain diseases and health conditions. Many scientists have, in particular, suspected that there is a link that exists between gut bacteria and certain immunological diseases such as multiple sclerosis. Recent studies by researchers from Brigham and Women’s […]

Study: People With MS Have Double The Risk Of Early Death

New research indicates that people suffering from multiple sclerosis may have double the risk of dying early as compared to people without the said disease. Those who suffer from MS while at a younger age below 59 may even have three times the higher risk. Findings of the said study are published in the May […]

Multiple sclerosis is a disease that afflicts millions of people worldwide. The sad thing is that it does not yet have a cure. Scientists are working on trying to find ways to combat the disease in different ways. One of them is by trying to find ways to reduce the risk of developing the said […]

Research Links Rogue Protein To MS

Research Links Rogue Protein To MS

A team of researchers have identified a rogue protein linked to multiple sclerosis, a disease that causes the body’s own immune system to attack the central nervous system. They believe that this discovery could lead to a better understanding of diseases like MS and help develop new treatments for other similar neurodegenerative diseases. Scientists from […]

Key Protein Reduces MS Severity In Mice

Key Protein Reduces MS Severity In Mice

Researchers from the University of Pennsylvania and other collaborators have discovered a key protein that may be able to reduce the severity of a disease in mice similar to multiple sclerosis in humans. The said protein, called Del-1 is known to be the same protein type that also prevents inflammation and bone loss in mice […]
