I haven't seen anything from UBC that indicates they are studying twins.
Even if that information is correct, I do know for certain they have more than one study planned, so maybe one of them involves a twin cohort.
I am amazed when people suggest research is good only if it helps them directly. What do you expect researchers to do? Ask donors what characteristics they support in the participants?
I would have to say "I only support research on 50 yr old females, MS for 29 or more years, on Rebif, with moderate disability." That's crazy.
I support ALL efforts to untangle MS, if not for me, for the generations that follow.
Those who think twin studies don't help them are simply mistaken, by the way. Twins allow researchers to control a myriad of extraneous variables, like genetics (if identical), home environment (and probably childhood diet), and so on. That means when they find something they are closer to establishing significance to their data and even causality.
