What causes MS?
MS is very complex. The cause of MS is not a single thing but a coming together of a certain genetic predisposition, certain environmental contacts, probably early in life, and perhaps certain other factors that we really only partially know about today.

We do know certain things about MS. We know that people with certain tissue types, from certain hereditary backgrounds are more likely to get MS,

We know that there is some likely environmental contact or contacts early growing up, and we know that the disease is mediated in large part through the immune system. The immune system is what then alters the response to foreign materials in the body and appears to be attacking the myelin or the coating of the nerves around the axons in the brain and in the spinal cord.

Some new information that actually [came out] within the last few months, is that there is more going on in MS than just meets the clinical picture. In other words, when patients are clinically stable, they may have disease working on their body, just not being manifest. We learned a few years back with the development of MRI that MS appeared to have more active MRI lesions than it appeared to have clinical exacerbations. But we now know that biochemically with some new tests such as Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy, or MRS, that there is much more steady activity in more areas of the body than even show up in the most recent type of MRI testing.

We're learning more and more about MS all the time, but we still have a ways to go. Fortunately, we now have some treatments that are at least starting to alter the course of MS.

RE: What causes MS?
Multiple sclerosis is a disease in which the nerves of the central nervous system degenerate. Myelin, which provides a covering or insulation for nerves, improves the conduction of impulses along the nerves and also is important for maintaining the health of the nerves.
