Early this year, a very large-scale, long-term study (of over 10 million U.S. military personnel, over a span of 20 years) done at Stanford Medicine, was published that showed fairly conclusively that the Epstein-Barr virus is the cause of multiple sclerosis (also known as MS). The results of the study have been reported in the NY Times and other sources, such as Stanford’s website, https://med.stanford.edu/news/all-news/2022/01/epstein-barr-virus-multiple-sclerosis.html
Writing Assignment: What is the Epstein-Barr virus, and how does it trigger MS (and possibly other autoimmune disorders)?
As with the first writing assignment, draw on several different sources, but explain it in your own words (at least 400 words in length.) Be sure to include at least 2 reference citations; you may use either the MLA or APA format; in the “Useful Links”, click on “Hostos Library”, and then go to their “Citation Guide”, on “Citation Help & How to Avoid Plagiarism.” (Note: Wikipedia is not a valid source for citations, as it is anonymous; but it is okay to look at Wikipedia, as long as you keep in mind that information found there is not necessarily accurate or comprehensive.)
