Anne H. Cross, MD, from the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis discussed research on the topic and what it could mean to treatment during the 2015 Annual Meeting of the Consortium of Multiple Sclerosis Centers in Indianapolis. While diet has been discussed in the field for nearly 60 years Cross said that discussion has recently turned to areas like saturated fats, vitamin D, and calorie restriction.
