Is Multiple Sclerosis (MS) caused by an infection with a retrovirus? Background of this thesis is that patients receiving antiretroviral therapy do not appear to fall ill with MS. Swiss researchers at the University of Geneva have developed antibodies that might be able to cure MS. These are antibodies against the “Multiple Sclerosis Retrovirus” (MSRV). Initial successes are encouraging.
It has long been suspected that MS is an overreaction of the immune system that is caused by contact with viruses. Stem cells from fat have proven themselves as suitable in such false reactions of the immune system. Read more on our page about stem cell therapy for nervous diseases.
