You may be interested to look at my web site (below) and the article on
Behcet's syndrome. This has a lot to say about MS. It shows how the
disease is likely to be a combination of auto-immune reactivity (auto-
rejection), response to hidden infection and some elements of
vasculitis BUT, all of these are manifestions of the immune rejection.
It also has a lot to say on why women have a higher incidence of MS but
men get a more severe form of the illness. It shows how a variety of
factors affect it and it shows that, along with many other "auto-
rejective" illnesses it is modulated by menstruation, pregnancy, stress
and aging (the Clinical Morphostasis article has more to say on this).
