Preventing multiple sclerosis thanks to knowledge of your DNA

 Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a disease affecting the central nervous system in which the insulating layer around nerve fibres in the brain, spinal cord and optic nerves is damaged. The onset of MS is generally between the ages of 20 and 40. In the Netherlands more than 16,000 people suffer from MS and roughly 2.5 times more women are affected than men. The symptoms and development of the disease can vary considerably from one person to another.

Multiple sclerosis and heredity

The risk of multiple sclerosis is determined to some extent by hereditary factors. To date it has been scientifically proven that a number of genes play a role in this. On the basis of your DNA it is therefore possible to see clearly whether you have an increased or reduced risk of developing multiple sclerosis.
