Unlocking the cause for autoimmune diseases like Mutiple Sclerosis has proved challenging. But millions of dollars of research funding from the National MS Society has led UConn Health researchers to discover a strong link that could affect treatment.

WTNH health reporter, Jocelyn Maminta, takes a closer look at this promising research.
