MS: Common herpesvirus variant raises risk

 4 days ago       19 Views

MS is an autoimmune condition that affects around 400,000Trusted Source people in the United States and 2.5 million people worldwide.

The condition affects the central nervous system, "tricking" the immune system into attacking the protective myelin sheath that surrounds the nerve cells.

The medical community has not yet identified the cause of MS. Many health professionals believe that genetic predisposition plays a role, with environmental factors such as smoking and viral infections potentially triggering MS risk genes.
