Animal models are just that...models. Used wisely they can inform

Some of you said in comments yesterday tha this involves vitaminD/UVB; Epstein Barr virus, cats & dogs etc etc and smoking, which are not part of EAE. In EAE the assumption is that we do not model the cause but you are looking at pathological pathways. Once you identify a problem you can however model it
Could you make rats and mice is not the point...however to blame animals for the lack of progress in MS is an opinion, but not a very good one in my opinion. There are far better things to point the finger at.
