Unfortunately this is not new news.  There has been a suspected connection between the chicken pox virus (varicela-zoster)and MS for some time now.  Unfortunately, this has not yet translated to any sort of treatment or cure.  So, it seems it is way too early to get excited.  Here is an English abstract from the study.
