We have heard for years that there may be a connection between Epstein-Barr (EBV) and MS.
Most of us, that is 90% of the general population, carry EBV-infected cells. Researchers from Australia's University of Queensland say MSers are less effective at fighting EBV. There is also a relationship between the strength of a person's immune system and the age MS develops.
Controlling EBV may result in fewer cases of MS. That sounds like promising news to me!
