  • Discovery of the link between Acinetobacter bacteria in MS patients and BSE affected animals was made by the editor's team at KCL, who will discuss this discovery with a unique knowledge
  • The book will deal with the cause of MS throughout the world, which will arouse international interest in the scientific and medical community
  • Some 20 papers on neurological topics will be brought together, making this book accessible to patients, neurologists, research institutions, professionals and the general public

Through the discovery of the link between Acinetobacter bacteria in Multiple Sclerosis patients and Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy affected animals, the author brings together a comprehensive look at the cause of MS throughout the world. Multiple Sclerosis, Mad Cow Disease and Acinetobacter delves into the cause of these two neurological diseases, MS and BSE, and elaborates on their relation through exposure to a common microbe: Acinetobacter, found in human sinuses, on the skin and in the soil.

Multiple Sclerosis, Mad Cow Disease and Acinetobacter informs the reader that multiple sclerosis may be linked to the microbe Acinetobacter, which carries molecular structures resembling myelin, the outer sheath covering of neurones. This book will be of interest to international scientific and medical communities, as well as accessible to patients, neurologists, research institutes and the general public.
