Study reveals more evidence that some forms of MS are inherited

Less than a year after publishing research identifying a single genetic mutation that caused multiple sclerosis (MS) in two Canadian families, scientists at the University of British Columbia have found a combination of two other mutations in another family that made them highly susceptible to the disease...Read more - http://www.ms-uk.org/study-reveals-more-evidence-some-forms-ms-are-inherited-180417

A mutation increases 70% the risk of multiple sclerosis!

This is the first genetic alteration associated with less frequent familial cases.

A mutation in the gene NR1H3 increases by 70% the risk of developing multiple sclerosis, as described today in Neuron by a team from the University of British Columbia in Vancouver (Canada).

Gene expression between men and women differs during relapse

Gene expression between men and women differs during relapse and remission in MS

A new study in Spain has highlighted differing patterns of small non-coding RNA (sncRNA) molecules regulate relapse and remission in multiple sclerosis and that this differs between men and women...Read more - http://www.ms-uk.org/MSnews

Identifying MS gene mutations could lead to personalised treatments

Personalised medicine, often applied to treat cancer, may be possible for patients with multiple sclerosis as well. Certain patients respond differently to certain multiple sclerosis medications, such as interferon-β (IFNβ), and researchers at San Raffaele Scientific Institute in Milan may have an answer as to why....
