The Disease





What is

Multiple Sclerosis?

Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is thought to be an immune-meditated disease that affects the central nervous system (CNS). The CNS consists of the brain, spinal cord, and the optic nerves. Surrounding and protecting the nerve fibers of the CNS is a fatty tissue called myelin, which helps nerve fibers conduct electrical impulses. In MS, myelin is lost in multiple areas leaving scar tissue called sclerosis.
