Focus on MS
The theme this year is 'Research'. In Belgium, the Belgian Charcot Foundation guarantees quality and continuity for more than 30 years with more than 200 researchers from the 23 recognized research centers.
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is the most common neurological disorder among young adults. It is an auto-immune disease in which the body attacks its own tissues. The immune attack in MS targets the central nervous system. The lesions are well-localised and are called “plaques”.
Twice a year, the Charcot Foundation publishes a Bulletin which wants to be the objective reflection of research and last acquisitions in Multiple sclerosis as well in the field of our knowledge of the disease as of the new treatments under study
