Hope for those with MS: Find, Stop, Cure.

Multiple Sclerosis affects over 400,000 individuals in the US and as many as 2.5 million people worldwide.

The Multiple Sclerosis Research Institute was started to:

Find: Find the cause of MS, specifically by determining why immune cells called Regulatory T-cells are not doing their job and, therefore, allow other types of immune cells to damage myelin and nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord.

Stop: Until there is a cure we need to stop MS attacks and progression of the disease. The mechanism of action of current therapies is being investigated to help gain clues as to how these treatments affect Regulatory T-cells so that these insights can improve current drugs and help design better drugs for treating MS in the future.

Cure: In collaboration with other researchers MSRI is involved in the development of an entirely new approach to treating MS. The goal of this research is to reduce and eliminate the inflammatory process, as well as disease progression.
