Researchers in the U.S. and Germany, with support from the National MS Society, recently discovered that increasing salt intake encourages a group of aggressive immune cells involved in triggering and sustaining immune diseases. The immune cells, called Th17, were studied in laboratory culture dishes and in mice with EAE, an MS-like disease.

Your gift is a connection that counts
In the first meeting of its kind, more than 170 MS researchers and clinicians from around the world gathered to discuss key challenges and strategies to expedite treatments for progressive forms of MS.
At MSConnection.org, you can join more than 13,000 people already connecting – including people living with MS, activists, MS experts, carepartners and loved ones. Exciting new features coming soon include live chat rooms, online support groups, tips from MS experts and more!
MS destroys connections. So it’s only fitting that our connections would be its greatest enemy. At Walk MS, our connections become more powerful than the connections MS destroys. Connect. Celebrate. Change lives.
