Multiple Sclerosis (MS)

Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is an inflammatory disease of the central nervous system (CNS) myelin sheath, or insulating material, that surrounds the nerve fibers in the brain, spinal nerves. The myelin is lost in multiple areas, leaving plaques or scars called scleroses (which is where the name “Multiple Sclerosis” comes from). This damage or loss of myelin can prevent nerve signals from being conducted, or can cause those signals to be conducted too slowly. Multiple sclerosis is characterized by attacks – “flare-ups” or exacerbations - which may be associated with plaques that prevent conduction of nerve impulses in the CNS. A period of exacerbation is also known as a relapse.

A study showed that “sodium phenylbutyrate taken through drinking water or milk may reduce the observed neuroinflammation and disease process in multiple sclerosis patients.”

Copies of clinical trials are available upon request for doctors and medical researchers.
