Month of Birth Might Help Determine MS Risk, Study Suggests
Date:11/14/2012

>"We are well aware that populations further from the equator have a higher incidence of MS," she added. "We also have new studies emerging demonstrating vitamin D supplementation may be beneficial to people with MS. The full story on how vitamin D impacts this disease is still unfolding."

And Dr. Fred Lublin, director of the Corinne Goldsmith Dickinson Center for Multiple Sclerosis at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine, in New York City, said the study "provides further evidence for a link between birth month and risk of MS."

Still, he said that although "the authors raise the question of whether vitamin D supplementation could mitigate the risk, this would need to be proven in a clinical trial."

The study was published online Nov. 14 in the Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery and Psychiatry. Although it showed an association between birth month and MS risk, it did not prove a cause-and-effect relationship.
