Abstract:This article reports that abnormal hormone levels may play a role in the development of multiple sclerosis. Researchers at University La Sapienza in Italy, measured hormone levels in 35 women and 25 men with multiple sclerosis, and in 36 people without the disease. Testosterone levels did not vary between men with multiple sclerosis and unaffected men. However, men with multiple sclerosis who had the highest levels of the female hormone estradiol were found to have the greatest degree of brain tissue damage.
