Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an inflammatory disease in which the fatty myelin sheaths around the axons of the brain and spinal cord are damaged, leading to demyelination and scarring as well as a broad spectrum of signs and symptoms.
Disease onset usually occurs in young adults, and it is more common in women. It has a prevalence that ranges between 2 and 150 per 100,000. MS affects the ability of nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord to communicate with each other effectively, and although much is known about the mechanisms involved in the disease process, the cause remains unknown.
