Studies in mice have shown that even a small dose of aspirin reduces the symptoms of diffuse sclerosis.
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an autoimmune disorder in which aberrant T-cells of the immune system attack and destroy the protective sheath of the protein myelin that protects the nerves, according to Medical Xpress.
A new study on this topic was led by Professor Susanta Mondal (Susanta Mondal) at the Medical center of veterans Affairs Jesse brown in Chicago.
In the experiment, a team of scientists fed mice with aspirin, which specifically brought with simulated diffuse sclerosis of man. The researchers found that even low doses of aspirin equal to 81 milligram “baby aspirin”, which many people take to prevent heart disease keep MS symptoms in mice.
Moreover, the painkiller seems to have slowed down the development of the disease. The myelin sheath around the nerves had less degradation after the mouse took aspirin. Destructive infiltration of T cells into the spinal cord have also been limited.
“Although the experiments on mice are not always good for people, the results of our study emphasize the hidden properties of aspirin and suggest that low doses of this drug can be used to treat MS symptoms,” writes the research team.
However, experts insist that tests be conducted in large scale and with the participation of the people, then the further use of aspirin as a treatment for multiple sclerosis will be possible.
Recall that excessive intake of salt provokes inflammation in people suffering from multiple sclerosis.
As reported by the portal “Znayu” data analysis of hundreds of thousands of American women showed that regular consumption of low-dose aspirin (100 mg) reduces the risk of ovarian cancer by 23 %.
Also “Znayu” wrote that doctors found a mutation in the genes that leads to the emergence of a rare disease syndrome Saul-Wilson or dwarfism.
