Funny, I did some reading yesterday about the relationship between multiple sclerosis and HIV/HAART... I recalled reading some time ago that people with HIV don't get MS, and I wanted to know a bit more.

First, an unexplained statistical link between HIV and MS was observed: people living with HIV are 62 to 85% less likely to get MS.
http://www.poz.com/articles/MS_HIV_761_26032.shtml
A that time people did not know whether the protective effect was caused by the virus itself or by the anti-retroviral therapies.
Although there were a few stories before that, which suggested that HAART was the culprit. For example, patients having both HIV and MS saw their MS symptoms gradually reduced after they started taking HAART.

Now there seems to be more and more evidence that HAART has a protective effect against MS, which could therefore be caused by a (retro)virus.

So, yeah, HIV drugs are awesome ;)

Thats really encouraging news.MS has to be one of the nastiest diseases on the planet.I just lost a friend known for 25 years, he was actually diagnosed a year after meeting him and at the time had no noticeable symtons .....I watched his long battle after that as it slowly took away everything till he was bed ridden and unable to swallow in the end. I thought no one deserves that suffering and was happpy he no longer had to suffer this past September. Modern science is amazing and so are the scientists and Doctors working on these medicines.This is really great news and only hope this can lead to some helpful treatment for those living with MS

I haven't had time to read the literature on your assertion but given that MS is an auto-immune disease and I struggle with umpteen auto-immune diseases on cART, I am suspect, and you should be too.

That is not to say I would dismiss this out of hand though. It is the anecdotal evidence reported by the BBC that should spur the usual thorough clinical trials-especially before screaming to the world that cART cures MS.
