Summary
While multiple sclerosis is relatively common, it remains a mysterious disease that can be difficult to detect early, and one which can leave its victims with lifelong, devastating consequences. Nearly 400,000 Americans live with MS and it is believed to affect as many as 2.5 million people worldwide. But recent breakthroughs in the understanding of MS have dramatically transformed the way the illness is viewed by the medical community. This program explains how new findings about multiple sclerosis are leading to the development of innovative treatments and the promise of a better life for patients.
