Scientists have finally identified two genes that may raise the risk of multiple sclerosis, lending insight into the causes of the debilitating disease.

This discovery sheds a new light on the possibilities of understanding the ways MS works and might help in developing even better therapies…

“Having this genetic road map will be of incredible importance in developing new therapies,” said Dr. David Hafler of Harvard Medical School, who worked on the genome study.
