Scientists have long been searching for an infectious agent that might trigger MS. While many different viruses have been suggested, including rabies, herpes simplex virus, measles, corona virus, canine distemper virus, HILV-1, Epstein-Barr virus, among others, none has yet been confirmed. Chlamydia pneumonia, a bacterial agent, has also been suggested but never proven. Although no trigger has yet been identified, most MS experts believe that some infectious agent is initiating the disease process.
Every ounce of understanding will help fight this disease. With continued funding, an important piece to this puzzle (and it really is a puzzle) could be found any day.
By sponsoring me in the MS150, we can help those who are affected with MS, and we can help the scientists find the key trigger.
This is why we ride.
