Overview

Because multiple sclerosis is a variable, unpredictable condition of unknown pathogenesis, a condition that places an enormous burden - physical, psychological, social and financial - on those affected by it (patients, family, careers and friends), unanswered questions need addressing. Popular telivision shows like "West Wing" have brought MS to the attention of millions of viewers. This book attempts to provide answers for those in family practice when being interviewed by patients and family. Clinical trial data are analyzed and presented in a clear, concise style so that those diagnosing and treating MS patients can do so in an effective manner. This is a practical guide for all those working in clinical practice.
