From the Publisher:
Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a disease in which the immune system eats away at the protective sheath covering the nerves, interfering with the communication between the brain and the body. This book explains who gets the disorder and why, and how it affects the body. Diagnosis and current treatment options are discussed, as well as living with the disease. With all-new full-color photos and illustrations, this updated edition offers the latest statistics along with information on new treatments, drugs, and future research.
