Multiple Sclerosis Research Progress & Initiatives

Outline: Summary of significant 2015 multiple sclerosis research progress and initiatives from The National Multiple Sclerosis Society.

Main Digest

Important research progress occurred in 2015, offering new leads in stopping multiple sclerosis in its tracks, restoring function that has been lost, and ending MS forever. The National MS Society, for its part, is pursuing all promising paths to uncover solutions, wherever those opportunities exist. Moreover, Society investments in research continue to increase, they will reach nearly $54 million in 2015, supporting 380 new and ongoing research projects and initiatives. Here is a brief summary of significant 2015 research progress and initiatives.

Multiple sclerosis, an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system, interrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body. Symptoms range from numbness and tingling to blindness and paralysis. The progress, severity and specific symptoms of MS in any one person cannot yet be predicted, but advances in research and treatment are moving us closer to a world free of MS. Most people with MS are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50, with at least two to three times more women than men being diagnosed with the disease. MS affects more than 2.3 million worldwide.
