  • Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic inflammatory and demyelinating disease of the central nervous system (CNS). Although the cause of MS is still uncertain, it is well accepted that both genetic and environmental factors are important for the development of disease. In this study, we focused on the Polio Virus Receptor (PVR) and Herpesvirus entry mediator B (HVEB) receptor genes, which are located on chromosome 19q13, a region previously linked to MS. Both receptors are expressed in the brain… CONTINUE READING
