Genes gone awry

I've run this through my patented, " Gobbledygook – to – English", translating machine and it would appear that, during a relapse, a number of genes are expressed which prevent the white blood cells from killing themselves at the correct time.

Nightly Night Sweats

Hi there everyone - I am new to this Board and am in need of some help please! I am suffering from dreadful drenching night sweats and have done so for months and months. Doctors are at a loss to explain this which has been very frustrating. Does anyone else suffer from this and if so, how often do you get them? Is this related to MS?
