New reaserch has found that the bacteria Clostridium perfringens may be the cause to MS. Canadian researchers found that out of 119 MS patients whose cause of death could be determined, 47.1% (or 56 deaths between 1972-1988 ) “were directly attributed to complications of MS.”

Deaths from C. perfringens type A food poisoning are not common but do occur in the elderly and debilitated. Per year this food poisoning is estimated to kill ∼7 people in the United States and 50 to 100 people in the United Kingdom.
www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov...
Although not as fatal as other pathogens, this is a less well known bacteria, which causes severe stomach cramps and a mild form of diarrhea that lasts only about 24 hours.




Clostridium perfringens is commonly found in intestinal tracts of humans and in dirt. It is usually associated with food that has been allowed to stay warm for several hours. During cooking, which will kill most types of bacteria, Clostridium perfringens turns into another form called a spore. A spore is like a seed, it stays dormant in the food until conditions are favorable, then like a plant seed it will germinate and grow. The spores of Clostridium perfringens are very heat resistant and will withstand boiling for several hours.



Researchers from Weill Cornell Medical College have pinpointed a toxic byproduct of the bacterium, epsilon toxin. epsilon toxin has the ability to permeate the blood-brain barrier.

Once inside, it causes meningeal inflammation. Additionally, epsilon toxin also kills cells that produce myelin( the protective sheath that surrounds neurons and allows them to transmit signals in the brain).

Perhaps new lab tests will be able to detect the toxin, allowing the physicians to start hemodialyasis and focused antibiotics, killing the bacteria and filtering out the toxin.

Beware news iterms making claims like this. MS sufferer.

There's been a lot of work to show MS is an autoimmune condition, responds to steroids, has links to a gene for defective vit D manufactureand responds to a high antioxidant level in the blood. Also shown the parasitic inefctions seriously mediate the diease course. Plenty of viral and bacterial infections aggravate it.

Always look at all evidence available.

It takes seconds to look these facts up yourself, but dont take the word of a person with MS. My mother has had MS her entire life, there are so many factors to MS, please look at all evidence available! www.webmd.com... this is an article about the vit D. Here is an article on IV steroid treatment for MS, www.webmd.com... Here is a great read on MS and antioxidants link.springer.com... and last but not least parasites, bacterias, and infections complicating MS, the point in this is about half way through the article www.nytimes.com...

I'm not here to argue sir, just to inform that new discoveries have been found, and what may cause this horrible disease. I'm sorry that you and your mother have MS, but it is science and research that have isolated vitamin D and steroid treatments.

Clostridium perfringens is a bacteria, am I missing something?
