Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and vitamin B12 deficiency share common inflammatory and neurodegenerative pathophysiological characteristics. Due to similarities in the clinical presentations and MRI findings, the differential diagnosis between vitamin B12 deficiency and MS may be difficult. Additionally, low or decreased levels of vitamin B12 have been demonstrated in MS patients. Moreover, recent studies suggest that vitamin B12, in addition to its known role as a co-factor in myelin formation, has… Expand
Effects of B Vitamins in Patients With Multiple Sclerosis
TLDR
Although there is no causal link between multiple sclerosis and vitamin B12 deficiency currently, the overlap and correlations are significant enough to warrant more research. Expand
A review on potential roles of vitamins in incidence, progression, and improvement of multiple sclerosis
TLDR
The importance of all water and fat-soluble vitamins in MS pathogenesis based on observational studies in human population and their role in the function of immune system as well as possible therapeutic opportunities are discussed in depth throughout this review. Expand
Vitamin B12 Deficiency and Multiple Sclerosis; Is there Any Association?
TLDR
The findings did not support any association between B12 deficiency and MS and there was no correlation between the concentration of serum vitamin B12 and disease’ age of onset, duration, subtypes, or disability status. Expand
Serum vitamin B12, folate, and homocysteine levels and their association with clinical and electrophysiological parameters in multiple sclerosis
TLDR
A significant relationship between MS and vitamin B12 deficiency is found, and a relationship between vitamin B 12 deficiency, VEP and posterior tibial SEP in MS is demonstrated. Expand
Identification of an iron-responsive subtype in two children diagnosed with relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis using whole exome sequencing
TLDR
A model for RRMS in children with an apparent iron-deficient biochemical subtype of MS, with oligodendrocyte cell death and impaired myelination possibly caused by deficits of energy- and antioxidant capacity in mitochondria is supported. Expand
High-dose vitamin B supplementation for persistent visual deficit in multiple sclerosis: a pilot study.
TLDR
Supplemental high-dose vitamins B1, B6 and B12 resulted as effective therapy to improve visual function parameters in MS-related visual persistent disability. Expand
Identifying the culprits in neurological autoimmune diseases
TLDR
A review of the most studied culprits as well as the mechanisms used by these to trigger NADs focuses on multiple sclerosis and Guillain-Barré syndrome. Expand
The Role of Neurotropic B Vitamins in Nerve Regeneration
TLDR
The presence of vitamins B1, B6, and B12 paves the way out to the following important regeneration by supporting the development of new cell structures. Expand
The importance of NAD in multiple sclerosis.
TLDR
The role of NAD in EAE versus TMEV demyelinating pathogenesis is contrasted to increase the understanding of the pharmacotherapeutic potential of NAD signal transduction pathways and the importance of increased SIRT1 activity in both PARP-1 inhibition and the potentially integral role of neuronal CD200 interactions through glial CD200R with induction of IDO in MS pathogenesis are speculated. Expand
Loss of epidermal growth factor regulation by cobalamin in multiple sclerosis
TLDR
The results indicate that the positive Cbl-mediated regulation of myelino- and oligodendrocyte-trophic EGF is lost in the CSF of RR- or SP-MS patients; the decrease in EGF levels in theCSF may be one factor impeding CNS remyelination in MS; and the PP clinical course may have different pathogenetic mechanism also on the basis of the molecules investigated in this study.

Vitamin B12 metabolism in multiple sclerosis.
TLDR
Vitamin B12 metabolism in patients with multiple sclerosis had significantly lower serum vitamin B12 levels and significantly higher unsaturated R-binder capacities than neurological and normal controls, and they were significantly macrocytic compared with normal controls. Expand
Vitamin B12 deficiency neurological syndromes: a clinical, MRI and electrodiagnostic study.
TLDR
The evoked potential and MRI changes in vitamin B12 deficiency neurological syndrome are consistent with focal demyelination of white matter in spinal cord and optic nerve. Expand
Decreased vitamin B12 and folate levels in cerebrospinal fluid and serum of multiple sclerosis patients after high-dose intravenous methylprednisolone
TLDR
It is hypothesized that low or reduced vitamin B12/folate levels found in MS patients may be related to previous corticosteroid treatments and further studies may be required to clarify the vitamin B 12 and folate metabolism in patients with MS. Expand
Moderate hyperhomocysteinemia and immune activation.
TLDR
Moderate hyperhomocysteinemia is associated with an increased risk of atherosclerosis, thrombosis and neurodegenerative diseases, and the question is addressed, whether effects attributed to homocysteine, are not rather the consequence of folate and vitamin B12-deficiency. Expand
Serum cobalamin deficiency is uncommon in multiple sclerosis.
TLDR
The frequency of biologically severe Cbl deficiency in patients with multiple sclerosis and idiopathic myelopathy was very low, and serum Cbl and folate levels were determined in all patients whose Cbl levels were lower than 301 pg/mL. Expand
New Basis of the Neurotrophic Action of Vitamin B12
TLDR
The results of these studies strongly support the notion that cobalamin plays a pivotal role in regulating the balance of the network of cytokines and growth factors in the central nervous system of the rat. Expand
Human cobalamin deficiency: alterations in serum tumour necrosis factor‐α and epidermal growth factor
TLDR
In humans, as in rats, cobalamin concentration appears to be correlated with the synthesis and release of TNF‐α and EGF in a reciprocal manner, because cobalamina deficiency is accompanied by overproduction of T NF‐αand underproduction of EGF. Expand

TLDR
The following review indicates that the impact of cobalamin on neurologic disease extends far beyond the traditional myelopathy of classical pernicious anemia and will demand increased vigilance from clinicians so that atypical and subtle cobalamina deficiency states will be readily diagnosed.

Autoimmune hyperthyroidism in patients with multiple sclerosis treated with interferon beta-1b.
TLDR
Since some symptoms of thyroid dysfunction may be difficult to distinguish from typical MS-related symptoms, thyroid hormone levels should be checked when unexplained constitutional symptoms occur during IFN-beta-1b therapy. Expand
Immune deviation following pulse cyclophosphamide/methylprednisolone treatment of multiple sclerosis: Increased interleukin‐4 production and associated eosinophilia
TLDR
Both CY/MP‐ and MP‐treated groups had decreased production of IFN‐γ compared with untreated MS, and pronounced immune deviation favoring Th2‐type responses after pulse cyclophosphamide therapy is demonstrated. Expand
