Hey Everyone
 
I saw this article and thought u all might want to check it out. Seems scientists believe vitamin B3 may help not only MS patients with Relapsing/Remitting, but also those with more progressive MS.

Well, like I've always said: "Give me a mouse with MS and we can CURE it!!" This wouldn't be the first medicine...or treatment...tried on mice that worked, that didn't translate to humans!

I suspect there is some link between MS and the B vitamin...a lack of B12, for example, can cause MS-like symptoms in some folks, and doctors often start with injections of B12 (oral won't work the same way) to see if the symptoms are relieved. And I just saw a study the other day talking about Vitamin D and MS, and those of us with MS lacking Vitamin D...

Now if they just can get those studies to translate to humans, and SOON, thank you very much!!! :)
