    Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic inflammatory disease resulting in demyelination in the central nervous system (CNS). Increasing evidence supports that genetic factors confer susceptibility to MS. One locus, the HLA complex (6p21), has been identified as important in MS, but no other loci...
