    ..We have found increased expression of HERV-Fc1 in MS patients suffering from recent attack, but the underlying mechanism for association is still unknown...

    ..Observations in HIV-positive patients suggest that antiretroviral drugs can curb MS. Thus, these new findings regarding the etiology and pathogenesis of MS, suggest alternative ways to challenge autoimmune diseases. ..

    ..This indicates that the two TRIMs and BST2 influence the risk of disease and thus supports the hypothesis of a viral involvement. ..
