About Multiple Sclerosis
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic disease of the central nervous system. The protective and insulating cells of the nerves of the brain and spinal cord are attacked and destroyed by the body’s own immune system. This results in an individual constellation of symptoms for each patient. Many studies are currently focusing on the exact mechanisms contributing to this disease process and the correlations with other aspects of the disease. Although new drugs are able to stop the progression of the disease to a large extent, the body’s immune system is slowed down. A cure for MS does not yet exist. In addition to the development of targeted drugs, the development of new measuring methods for the more accurate recording of individual symptoms is also important.
