Multiple sclerosis is a chronic and often disabling disease of the nervous system, affecting about 1 million people worldwide. Even though it has been known for over a hundred years, no cause or cure has yet been discovered-but now there is hope. New therapies have been shown to slow the disease progress in some patients, and the pace of discoveries about the cellular machinery of the brain and spinal cord has accelerated. This book presents a comprehensive overview of multiple sclerosis today, as researchers seek to understand its processes, develop therapies that will slow or halt the diseas

This concise, abundantly illustrated text provides a complete overview of multiple sclerosis. By including recent research findings in genetics, immunology and pathophysiology, the authors provide reliable and up-to-date guidance on the epidemiology, diagnosis, prognosis and treatment of MS. Of particular interest to neuroscientists and neurologists will be the reviews of experimental models of MS, pathology of the demyelinated plaque, HLA associations and the role of immune mechanisms. Contributors analyze the environmental and geographical factors in the etiology of MS, including the possib

Multiple sclerosis is the most common neurological disease affecting young and middle-aged adults, and while much is known about its classic motor and sensory symptoms, it has only been during the past decade, with the advent of specialized neuropsychological test procedures and brain imaging methods, that the cognitive and behavioral changes associated with the disorder have come to be better understood. This book charts that recent progress. It provides a balanced, interdisciplinary view, covering the prevalence, range, type, and course of cognitive and affective disturbances in multiple scl

Written by a professor of medicine who is also personally affected by the disease, Multiple Sclerosis offers an overview of every aspect of the condition. It begins by introducing the central nervous system and describing how multiple sclerosis affects the brain and spinal cord. The author then reviews early understanding of MS, how it was first recognized as a disease, and the discoveries that have helped explain its causes. Moving to contemporary understanding of multiple sclerosis, the book explores the epidemiology of MS in the United States and around the world, describes MS symptoms, and
