]. Infections with T. gondii have also been linked to epilepsy [ 14 ]. Whether infection with T. gondii is associated with multiple sclerosis is controversial. A negative association between this infection and multiple sclerosis was found in two studies in

Introduction As a progressive neurological disease, multiple sclerosis (MS) is defined by perivenular inflammatory lesions and demyelinating plaques within the central nervous system (CNS) [ 1 ]. Typical symptoms of MS are observed in patients

Abstract  

Hair samples from Canada, China, India and New Zealand were analyzed by neutron activation analysis. Comparison of the percent manganese in the alkali-soluble fraction of hair with the total manganese concentrations shows that, within groups, the percent manganese concentrations is relatively constant whereas overall concentrations are not. For multiple sclerosis (MS) patients, from Canada and New Zealand, very highly significant differences were observed, between controls and patients, for %Mn in the alkali-soluble fraction.

Abstract  

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a neurological autoimmune disease in which the immune system attacks the central nervous system for unknown reasons and causes several damages to human body by demyelinating the nerve cells. One of the possible cause of this disease is the abnormality levels of some trace elements such as Br, Fe, Rb, Sb, As, and Zn in human body. This study attempts to measure the levels of four trace elements of Br, Fe, Rb, and Zn in the patients’ blood samples and compare them with control samples from healthy individuals. It should be noted that the objectives set out partly met. According to the obtained results, the differences between the levels of Br, Fe, and Rb in patients’ blood samples and control was not significant (P > 0.05). However, the average level of Zn between samples and controls showed a significant difference (P < 0.05). Therefore the lower level of Zn in blood is likely to be a major cause of MS emergence. Furthermore, by using the concentration level of Zn as indicator, it was revealed that the risk of MS infection rises as the number of pregnancies increase.
