About the book
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a neurological condition that affects the Central Nervous System. For a person being diagnosed with MS, it can mean a lifelong illness that ranges from being mild to severely debilitating. There is no known cure for the disease. Over the years, extensive research has been carried out to better understand its etiology and pathogenesis, alongside robust clinical trials being conducted to develop effective therapeutic avenues. Research studies and clinical trials continue to take place across the world to help find a cure for MS. There is a very close interplay of immunological mechanisms in the development and progression of MS.
This book aims to bring together the latest, cutting-edge research findings along with expert commentary on epidemiology, etiology, pathogenesis, immunology, clinical treatment modalities, neuroimaging, and neuropsychiatric manifestations of this chronic inflammatory disease affecting the brain and spinal cord. The book also aims to provide an in-depth exploration of current and future directions for understanding immunology, neuroscience, and the development of potent treatment modalities.
