MELATONIN HELPS EVEN IN MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS?

September 16, 2015 (Buenos Aires, Argentina)
 

According to a recent study conducted by Prof. Mauricio Farez, neurologist Raúl Carrea Institute for Neurological Research (FLENI) of Buenos Aires, melatonin may provide relief to patients suffering from multiple sclerosis. To assess the potential the scientists tested the effect of "seasonality", for an entire year, 139 patients suffering from the disease. They then realized that during the fall and winter relapse rates of patients were lower by 32% than the rest of the year. The increase of melatonin leads to a strengthening of the immune system and, specifically, of regulatory T cells; at the same time blocks the production of T cells harmful. Some tests conducted on laboratory mice confirmed the theory. "In the study," the researchers point out, "we have shown that meltonoina is the cure for multiple sclerosis, but the result will be used to develop similar compounds to be tested anyway" (Source: Tiscali news).
