    Epstein-Barr VirusAlthough no specific viral triggers have yet been isolated it suspected that infection with one or more childhood illnesses (e.g. Epstein-Barr, (Glandular Fever)[Human Herpes Virus 6,  HHV-6) could be involved in the development of MS in later life.

    There have been a number of studies undertaken into a possible link between Epstein-Barr Virus and MS.
