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....

Researcher improves methodology for predicting genetic ‘mutations’

Researchers around the world have sequenced the genomes of patients living with from common, multi-gene diseases, looking for common mutations in their control regions. However these studies produce hundreds of mutations, many of which prove to be benign..... Read More - http://www.ms-uk.org/genetics

Genetic risk factor uncovered

Researchers at the University of Illinois at Chicago have identified a genetic variation that in women significantly increases their risk of developing multiple sclerosis. The report is published in the journal ASN Neuro.

The variant occurs almost twice as often among women with MS as in women without the disease, making it "one of the strongest genetic risk factors for MS discovered to date," said senior author Doug Feinstein, professor of anesthesiology at UIC and ...

MS? Immune system or nervous system?

Does multiple sclerosis stem from immune system and not the nervous system?

The genetic starting point for autoimmune diseases like multiple sclerosis (MS) and type 1 diabetes may be TK, according to a study published in Nature on October 29, 2014.

A multifaceted team of researchers developed a new mathematical formula to scour existing DNA databases in order to determine why inherited DNA variations contribute to disease. The sequencing techniques they developed examined epigenetic characteristics ...

New DNA software may improve MS diagnosis and treatment

Researchers from UC San Francisco, the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, and Yale School of Medicine recently developed a software tool that helps researchers understand the complex genetic origins of many autoimmune diseases and, ultimately, to better diagnose and treat them. The study was published yesterday in Nature...... Read More - http://www.ms-uk.org/genetics
