Multiple Sclerosis (articles)

New hope for MS patients from UV light from the sun (beyond vitamin D)

It's not a new idea that multiple sclerosis (MS) is somehow tied to sunlight -- or, rather, the lack of adequate exposure to sunlight. For more than three decades, researchers have noted that MS is much more common in higher latitudes than in the tropics.

Experimental MS Vaccine Proves Safe in Early Test

08.13.07

MONDAY, Aug. 13 (HealthDay News) -- An experimental DNA vaccine to fight multiple sclerosis is safe and may also be effective, results of a small Canadian trial suggest.

The vaccine, called BHT-3009, works by preventing the immune system from attacking the myelin sheaths that protect nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord. The destruction of myelin eventually destroys a nerve cell's axon, which prevents cells from transmitting messages and is one of the hallmarks of MS.

Vitamin 'may block MS disability'

Wednesday, 20 September 2006

Vitamin shots may help protect multiple sclerosis patients from severe long-term disability, a study suggests.

Currently, there is no effective treatment for the chronic progressive phase of MS, when serious disability is most likely to appear.

Researchers cut the risk of nerve degeneration in mice with MS-type symptoms by giving them a form of vitamin B3 called nicotinamide.

The Children's Hospital Boston study appears in the Journal of Neuroscience.

Vitamin B3 may help patients with Multiple sclerosis

Wed, 20 Sep 2006 | Author : Steve Walters

The results of a new study have suggested that Nicotinamide, which is a form of vitamin B3, may help individuals who are suffering from Multiple sclerosis. The study, which was conducted on mice suffering from a disease similar to Multiple sclerosis, showed that the vitamin not only protected the nerve fibers of the mice from degeneration and loss of fatty insulating tissues, but also slowed down the process of nerve fiber damage.

A Controversial Therapy For Multiple Sclerosis (MS)

Brad successfully kicked a long-time cigarette smoking habit in June of 1990. As with most everyone who quits smoking, he was looking forward to improved health in return for his hard won victory. Instead, just five weeks later, he was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.
