ABSTRACT
The article discusses a study on the role of rate CYP27BI gene variants in multiple sclerosis (MS) patients in Austria. It examines the potential role of vitamin D deficiency as a risk factor for MS as well as looks at the cause of vitamin D-dependent rickets type 1. The study suggests that rate CYP27B1 variants have no major role in the etiology of MS.
