Although the reason behind the connection between Helicobacter pylori and multiple sclerosis is unknown, women with the stomach bacteria might not be as likely to develop MS, a recent study found.
Researchers looked at blood samples of 550 people with MS and 299 healthy people of the same age. Results of the study, published Jan. 19, showed that 14% of women with MS had evidence of a past infection of H. pylori, while 22% of healthy women had evidence of a past H. pylori infection, according to a Health Day report on the study.
