    The debilitating disease multiple sclerosis could be caused by the common virus behind "kissing disease", scientists claim. A new study from Harvard University suggests the chronic disease could be from an infection of Epstein-Barr, a herpes virus that causes infectious mononucleosis. Mono or glandular fever, as it’s otherwise known, is colloquially known as "the kissing disease" for being highly contagious through saliva. While causing fatigue, fever, rash, and swollen glands, researchers propose that the Epstein-Barr virus could also establish a latent, lifelong infection that may be a leading cause of multiple sclerosis. Affecting 2.8 million people, there is no known cure for the chronic inflammatory disease of the central nervous system. “The hypothesis that EBV causes MS has been investigated by our group and others for several years, but this is the first study providing compelling evidence of causality,” the study’s senior author Alberto Ascherio, a professor of epidemiology and nutrition at Harvard Chan School, said in a press release. “This is a big step because it suggests that most MS cases could be prevented by stopping EBV infection, and that targeting EBV could lead to the discovery of a cure for MS.” Read full story Source: The Independent, 13 January 2022

    The spread of the Covid-19 pandemic presented significant challenges in the management of patients with chronic diseases like multiple sclerosis (MS). This article in Frontiers in Neurology looks at how telemedicine was used as an alternative to face-to-face consultations with MS patients during the pandemic. Recognising the variation in care that occurred as different centres adopted telemedicine, they make a series of recommendations for the use of telemedicine in managing MS patients.

    This case report in the journal Cureus examines the use of dalfampridine, a drug used to improve walking in multiple sclerosis (MS) patients. Dalfampridine can have serious side effects including inducing seizures. Although the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recommends stopping the medication permanently after a single seizure episode, this recommendation is not widely known by health care professionals. The authors argue that there is a need to raise awareness of the FDA recommendation and the potential for dalfampridine to cause seizures amongst primary and secondary care doctors and patients.

    Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic inflammatory demyelinating disease of the central nervous system of unknown etiology. Bjornevik et al. tested the hypothesis that MS is caused by Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) in a cohort comprising more than 10 million young adults on active duty in the US military, 955 of whom were diagnosed with MS during their period of service. Risk of MS increased 32-fold after infection with EBV but was not increased after infection with other viruses. These findings cannot be explained by any known risk factor for MS and suggest EBV as the leading cause of MS.
