The Connection Between the Epstein-Barr Virus and Multiple Sclerosis

This study helps provide understanding, but does not answer the root questions

Bebo says that the situation is a bit like that of "chicken or the egg." He questions, "is that a consequence of the inflammation of the nervous system? Or was the virus reactivated and caused the inflammation that causes the damage of MS? This is not a great study to show the difference, but it adds to the body of knowledge, of EBV and MS. It makes a contribution but does not help us understand the real connection."
