Multiple sclerosis clinical trials and research studies

What is Multiple sclerosis?

Multiple sclerosis is a chronic disease of the central nervous system. In people with multiple sclerosis, the immune system attacks the protective and conductive sheath, the myelin sheath, that surrounds the nerve fibres in the brain and spinal cord. This leads to nerve cells having an impaired ability to send signals around the body. Depending on which part of the body is affected, multiple sclerosis symptoms vary from person to person. These symptoms include poor motor control (such as difficulty walking), fatigue, pain and cognitive issues involving concentration or memory. While multiple sclerosis can affect anyone, the risk of developing the condition is higher in people with a family history and it is three times more common in women than in men. The exact causes of multiple sclerosis are still unknown. There is no cure currently available for multiple sclerosis, but multiple treatment options do exist.

Where is Multiple sclerosis research now?

Multiple sclerosis research covers areas ranging from understanding the causes of the condition to improving the accuracy of diagnostic tools, to shaping better management protocols, to developing an effective way to reverse the damage to the myelin sheath. There is intense interest in understanding the role of the immune system in multiple sclerosis, with discoveries in the field underlying the possibility of preventing or curing the condition in the future.

How can I get involved in Multiple sclerosis research?

Participating in multiple sclerosis research and clinical trials may be a method to access the latest treatment drugs and management interventions or it may help pave the way in developing new therapies that will benefit others. There are a large number of clinical trials and research studies undertaken each year to understand and treat multiple sclerosis.
