Default Lancet Neurology looks at the role of gut microbiota in MS

The research is still new, but signs point to the gut having a potential influence in MS. The Lancet Neurology medical journal takes a deeper look. -D

Might the gut microbiota of people with multiple sclerosis differ from that of healthy people? Do some bacteria aggravate symptoms? Are other species protective? Could we treat patients by manipulating their intestinal microbes? Work is underway to find out. Adrian Burton investigates.
