What is Multiple Sclerosis (MS)?
Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a disorder of the central nervous system that affects the brain and spinal cord. In MS, the immune system attacks nerve fibers and destroys the myelin sheath; an insulating layer imperative for the conduction of nerve impulses. This inflammatory process disrupts communication within the brain, and between the brain and other parts of the body.
