EBV more common in MS
Everyone with multiple sclerosis showed antibodies to the Epstein Barr virus (EBV) in their blood in a German study of people in the early stages of MS. Exposure to EBV, which can cause glandular fever, is very high in the general population. A control group of people who don't have MS showed the level to be 95%. Although this study shows an association, it doesn't prove that EBV causes MS.
