Human Endogenous Retroviruses in MS

5/23/2011 6:01:00 AM

by Frank P Ryan


This is the abstract of a paper extrapolating the evolutionary situation of retroviruses in the human genome to the diagnosis, prognosis and, perhaps in the future, therapy of multiple sclerosis.

This is not a news item aimed at ordinary readers.  This paper wouldn't be an easy read for anybody other than the professionals it is aimed. at.  I should also add that it doesn't claim to offer a panacea for MS, but it contains novel insights and suggested further research that may help sufferers in the longer time.

 

Human Endogenous Retroviruses in Multiple Sclerosis: Potential for Novel Neuro-Pharmacological Research

 F. P. Ryan*

 *Department of Animal and Plant Science, Sheffield University

 

Abstract: There is growing evidence that the env genes of two or more human endogenous retroviruses (HERVs) of the W family are contributing to the inflammatory processes, and thus to the pathogenesis, of multiple sclerosis (MS).  Increasing understanding of the human endogenous retroviral locus, ERVWE1, and the putative multiple sclerosis associated retrovirus, or MSRV, and in particular of the HERV-W env sequences associated with these, offers the potential of new lines of pharmacological research that might assist diagnosis, prognosis and therapy of multiple sclerosis.
