New Weapons to Fight Multiple SclerosisStreaming Video - 2009
Doctors and researchers have new tools to better identify, study, and treat the brain and spinal cord lesions that cause MS. This program enters an MRI lab and presents informative case studies as it reveals state-of-the-art developments in the battle against MS. Topics include the four types of MS, MRI diagnosis and monitoring, sclerotic scars, and cognitive rehabilitation. Viewers will also learn about the Epstein-Barr Trigger Theory, T- and B-cell immunology, genetic aspects of MS, and drugs to reduce the frequency and severity of MS symptoms-some FDA-approved, others still in development.
