Introduction: Since the gastrointestinal system plays an important role in the function of the immune system, its role in the control or treatment of autoimmune diseases cannot be ignored. Therefore, the intestinal strengthening, which much of gastrointestinal function depends on it, can be effective in this direction. Also, because the intestine plays an important role in the immune system in addition to digestion, it can help maintain the immune system's function by keeping its bacteria balanced. In this regard, probiotics and prebiotics can be useful, which this issue was investigated in the present study.
Conclusion: Probiotics have an important role in the prevention and control of multiple sclerosis.
