Multiple Sclerosis

Okay, I have written a LOT about the connection between wayward ERV activity and Multiple Sclerosis. This is something scientists have been investigating for a long time… but we still do not know exactly what is going on. It seems the running hypothesis is that ‘something’/’somethings’ alter the epigenetic profile of individuals DNA, allowing for…

I have written quite a bit about the connection between wayward expression of an ERV, and Multiple Sclerosis. ERVs and Multiple Sclerosis ERVs and Multiple Sclerosis, #2 ERVs and Multiple Sclerosis, #3 ERVs and Multiple Sclerosis, #4 ERVs and Multiple Sclerosis, #5 I am very comfortable saying there is a connection between ERV expression and MS.…

ERVs and Multiple Sclerosis, #5

This is not overly helpful information for MS patients, but its still good news: No additional copies of HERV-Fc1 in the germ line of multiple sclerosis patients. Previous research has indicated that there are endogenous retroviruses that are disregulated and leading to detectable production of ERV proteins in MS patients.  They found the bugger involved–…

ERVs and Multiple Sclerosis, #3

ERVs and Multiple Sclerosis ERVs and Multiple Sclerosis, #2 Hmmm… This new paper on the association between ‘active’ ERVs and Multiple Sclerosis is a step back, and a step forward, at the same time: Expression of HERV-Fc1, a human endogenous retrovirus, is increased in patients with active Multiple Sclerosis. If you go back and read…
