The laureates of the Charcot Fund 2018
The laureates of the Charcot Fund 2018 are known: a choice for concrete results, a focus on progressive MS and, as usual, support for innovative basic research.
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
