Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a mysterious disease that was first discovered in 1868 by Jean-Martin Charcot, a French neurologist. The disease is highly variant in its nature and it has no known cause, and cure yet. Since from the discovery, to date the disease has been a subject of study for researchers.
The recent treatment strategies are modifying therapies that can reduce the disease progression and management. The researchers are still continuing the research findings and thus trying to find an ultimate solution for this disease.
The lack of a specific test in the disease diagnosis is one of the major issues related to this syndrome. There are several neurological examinations performed in general to detect this syndrome. The clinical and neurological tests includes: MRI, spinal tap, evoked potentials etc. Apart from these tests the detection is completely based on the patientâs interaction with the physician which gives him idea on medical histories, expressed symptoms etc. Journal of multiple sclerosis is an upcoming journal in the field of multiple sclerosis that supports the ongoing research in this field.
