  • Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an autoimmune disorder of the brain and spinal cord that predominantly affects white matter. MS has a variable clinical presentation and has no ‘diagnostic’ laboratory test; this often results in delays to definite diagnosis. In confronting the disease, early diagnosis and appropriate, timely therapeutic intervention are critical factors in ensuring favorable long-term outcomes.The availability of reliable biomarkers could radically alter our management of MS at… CONTINUE READING
