What causes multiple sclerosis? When will there be a cure?

Dr. Howard Weiner has spent nearly three decades trying to find answers to the mysteries of multiple sclerosis, an utterly confounding and devastating disease that afflicts almost half a million Americans. Curing MS is his moving, personal account of the long-term scientific quest to pinpoint the origins of the disease and to find a breakthrough treatment for its victims.

Dr. Weiner is at the cutting edge of MS research and drug development, and he describes in clear and illuminating detail the science behind the symptoms and how new drugs may hold the key to “taming the monster.” In Curing MS, Dr. Weiner teaches us the “Twenty-one Points” of MS, a concise breakdown of the knowns and unknowns of the disease; tells stories from the frontlines of laboratories and hospitals; and offers a message of hope that a cure can—and will—be found.

About the Author

Howard L. Weiner, M.D., is the Robert L. Kroc Professor of Neurology at Harvard Medical School. He is founder and director of the Partners Multiple Sclerosis Center at the Brigham and Womens Hospital in Boston and codirector of the Center for Neurological Diseases at the Brigham and Womens Hospital.

i have mild cognitive dysfunction so it feels like it took me forever to read this book. Dr Weiner presents detailed information about the last 40 years in MS drug development. as well as cases from his own practice when particular treatments were helpful and cases when they weren't.
