A study suggests that omega-3 fatty acids do not benefit patients with relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis. The fatty acids were thought to be an anti-inflammatory and have neuro-protective benefits in the disease. The study appeared online in the Archives of Neurology.

"The reality is that results from an underpowered study cannot be interpreted with any certainty," he said.
