EPISODE 229: Evidence Shows that MS Is Triggered by the Epstein-Barr Virus with Dr. Kassandra Munger and Dr. AJ Joshi
Last week, a research team at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health presented compelling evidence that the Epstein-Barr Virus (EBV) triggers multiple sclerosis. So, we're taking a deep dive into the role of EBV and MS.
We'll review the breakthrough results of this research and we'll re-share our conversation with one of the researchers in this game-changing study.
We'll review the status of an experimental cell therapy that's designed to remove the EBV virus from infected b-cells in people with progressive MS.
And we'll update you on a clinical trial that's underway to test an EBV vaccine.
We have a lot to talk about! Are you ready for RealTalk MS??!
