Rare Bacteria Might Be Trigger to MS
An article by Newsweek, recently highlighted the findings of scientists at Weill Cornell Medical College and the Rockefeller University that a rare bacteria might spur multiple sclerosis. A subtype of Clostridium Perfringens has been found in an MS patient. The bacteria is usually found in grazing animals and degrades the cells in the animal’s nervous system.
Previous researchers were led to believe that MS is an auto-immune disease, but this finding might mean that the disease is caused by an immune response to the germ.
