Summary: This very interesting article from Germany investigates a potential interplay between two viruses previously implicated in MS pathogenesis; The torque teno virus (TTV) and Epstein-Barr virus (EBV). The authors report that viral replication, as measured by genome amplification, as well as quantitative PCR of two TTV-HD14 isolates isolated from multiple sclerosis brain was significantly higher in EBV-positive cell lines than a EBV-negative Burkitt's lymphoma cell line. The authors suggest that possible interaction of EBV and TTV may exist in the aetiology and progression of multiple sclerosis.... Read More - http://www.msrc.co.uk/index.cfm/fuseact ... pageid/707
