Recruiting participants for a study on the effect of aged microbiota on Multiple Sclerosis progression. Pairs of cohabitating mother-and-daughter or father-and-son are needed for this study. During your visit, blood samples will be collected and you will be asked to provide a stool sample on-site. Participants are compensated up to $500/pair for successful completion of the study.
