The disease symptoms and treatments

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is the most common neurological disorder among young adults and often results in a handicap. 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”.
