INTRODUCTION: Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is one of the most frequently seen neurological diseases, with unknown etiology and unpredictable course. Amyotrophic Laterasl Sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive fatal neuromuscular condition affecting nerve pathway, and brain and spinal cord cells.

MATERIAL AND METHOD: Two patients with ALS and 10 patients with MS were examined by indirect Bi-Digital O-Ring Test (BDORT), based on the original work by Prof. Omura Y. Patients were between 26 and 46 years of age. Out of ALS patients, one was male and another was female. Two patients with MS were males, while 8 were females. The slides (ORT Life Research Laboratory-Japan and Carolina Biological Supply-USA) as well as various drugs used to determine the types of infections were utilized as referential substances for examination, such as: EPA/DHA capsule 180/120 mg (MIC Epa, USA) for determination of viral infections; Ampicillin 500 mg (Krka, Slovenia) for aerobe bacterial infections; Orvagyl (metronidazol) 400 mg (ICN-Galenika Yugoslavia) for anaerobe infections; Mycoseb (ketocoriazole) 200 mg (Zorka Pharma, Yugoslavia) for determination of fungal infections, especially caused by Candida albicans.

RESULTS: According to findings obtained by indirect BDORT all patients with ALS and MS were found to have infection of urogenital system and the identical infection of parieto-occipital parts of brain pertaining to senso-motor cortex. The quantity of mercury deposit in tissues, whose concentration was measured, indicated that the primary infection was in genitourinary system. Likewise, the anamnesis confirmed that initial symptoms were those related to genital and urinary tract infections and they preceded the neurological symptoms. While talking with patients and their sexual partners, we have learnt that one of them was regularly promiscuous. All patients had mixed infection. The underlying infection was caused by Chlamydia trachomatis found in all patients and associated with other communicable agents. Four patients had Ebstein bar virus, two had CMV, two had HSV 2, three had associated CMV and HSV 2, and one patient had associated CNW+HSV 2+HSV 6; eleven patients had Candida albicans; one patient had Naiseria gonorrhoe, seven had E.Colli, two Enterobacter aerogenes, and two Staphilococcus aureus+E.Colli.

DISCUSSION: This BDORT findings indicate that it is possible to make an early diagnosis and at that etiologic diagnosis in neurological patients; having all this in mind, standard laboratory test should be performed for verification of the results and causal treatment directed against the causes and not symptoms of a diseases should be applied. Likewise, the results suggest that the infection is transmitted by sexual contact, therefore, the development and spread of the diseases may be prevented by education of population in terms of using the preventive mechanic devices and changing the lifestyle.
