Spanish researchers hope to soon carry out clinical trials with humans after they found mice with multiple sclerosis that were given Viagra experienced a drastic reduction in symptoms.

 

The researchers at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona found complete recovery from MS symptoms occurred in 50% of the mice after just eight days of treatment.

 

Multiple sclerosis is the most common chronic inflammatory disease of the central nervous system and one of the main causes of disability among young adults. There is no cure for the disease, although some drugs have proven effective in fighting symptoms and preventing it from progressing.

 

The study, released Thursday, was published in the journal Acta Neuropathologica. The researchers are confident clinical trials will start soon because the drug sildenafil -- which is sold as Viagra -- is already used to treat sexual dysfunction in some MS patients.
