(Mynews4.com & KRNV) - A Johns Hopkins study of mice with a rodent form of Multiple Sclerosis found a high dose of Vitamin-D protected the animals from symptoms of the disorder.

Instead of eliminating and changing the damaging cells, Vitamin-D prevented them from entering the brain and spinal cord, where they do the most harm. Clinical trials are now underway to determine if Vitamin-D can help prevent or slow the progression of MS in humans.
