Epidemiology

MS affects roughly 2.5 million adults worldwide and 400,000 in the US.

Treatments

The treatment goals of disease-modifying therapy for MS are multi-fold.

Challenges in MS Management

MS is often undiagnosed; the CDC does not require physicians to report new cases, and the symptoms of the disease can go unrecognized for some time.

Diagnosis and Symptoms

At this time, there is no single diagnostic test that confirms multiple sclerosis.
