Environmental risk factors for multiple sclerosis in people from Colombia

Takeaway

  • In people from Bogotá, a low-risk region for MS, there is no significant association between MS and vitamin D levels.

Why this matters

    While numerous studies have explored environmental MS risk factors in high-risk regions, less is known about risk factors in low prevalence areas. This the first study to examine the association between MS and vitamin D levels in a Colombian population.
