Revolutionizing Treatment of Multiple Sclerosis
Multiple sclerosis (MS) typically affects women between the ages of 20 and 40 years old and is an autoimmune disease of the nervous system that, through inflammation, affects your brain and spinal cord. It damages the myelin sheath, the material that surrounds and protects your nerve cells. This damage slows down or blocks messages between your brain and your body, leading to the symptoms of MS. The first symptoms of MS are typically visual changes yet can include:

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a serious chronic neurological disorder in which demyelination and inflammation occur in the white matter of the CNS. The findings of many epidemiological studies and a discordance of MS in monozygotic twins suggest that the disorder is acquired. The most likely cause is a virus because more than 90% of patients with MS have high concentrations of IgG, manifest as oligoclonal bands, in the brain and CSF.
