Is Hereditary Biochemical
MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS
A New 'MS Subtype?

This research applies primarily to the investigation of a proposed hereditary biochemical form of `MS, but may also have important implications for autoimmune `MS.

The purpose of this research is to eventually explain the relationship of heme synthesis to Central Nervous System (CNS) damage and also to explain its control

Several of the hypotheses formulated for the etiology of `MS are linked together by the proposed disturbance in porphyrin metabolism implicated in a subgroup of `MS patients: environmental inducers including viral infections, autoimmunity, and genetic susceptibility (Kotze and Rooney 1997; Rooney et al., 1999). The possible connection between these hypotheses and the heme biosynthesis pathway will be further investigated.
