In this article from UBC Neurology Department where my old neurologist is who Lead Neurologist, Dr. Traboulsee, explains the big discovery that MS is a indeed genetic illness and they have identified the genetic mutation that leads to Multiple Sclerosis!
What this means is that doctors will be able to identify people who are over 40% more likely to develop MS with a simple blood test.
This also means researchers will be able to develop treatments using mouse models and have more information which should help develop more effective treatments.
I personally always thought MS was genetic, and now we have the proof!
I guess that was why I never really wanted to have children when I had opportunity to do so.
