Information About the Disease

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system that disrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and the body. In MS, the primary target of the immune system is the myelin sheath that surrounds the nerve fibers; the damaged myelin forms scar tissue. When any part of the myelin sheath is damaged or destroyed, the nerve impulses traveling to and from the brain and spinal cord are interrupted, producing a variety of symptoms, which can range from mild to severe. The cause is unknown, but MS is considered to be an immune-mediated process.
