Exercise program may have neuroprotective effects in MS

A recent study has looked at the effects of a 24 week exercise program on the levels of a protein in the nervous system called brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF). This protein is generally decreased in people with MS compared to healthy individuals. It has also been shown to increase in people with MS following a relapse, indicating that it may play a protective role in remission. The study found that a 24 week exercise program, ...
