Society launches project to change how MS disability and progression are measured – This cross-sector collaboration has the goal of developing new or improved tools that will be able to track benefits of therapies more quickly in people so that new therapies to stop MS progression may be tested using better assessment tools that are accepted by drug regulatory agencies. http://nationalmssociety.org/news/news-detail/index.aspx?nid=6777

Researchers co-funded by the National MS Society discover possible mechanism for MS damage to nerve tissue – The University of California, San Francisco researchers found that a blood-clotting protein called fibrinogen may play an early role in triggering inflammation that damages nerve fibers in a mouse model of MS. This points to a role for fibrinogen in stimulating inflammation by cells called microglia. If confirmed, targeting the interaction of fibrinogen and microglia may prove to be a novel strategy for stopping MS damage in its tracks. http://www.nationalmssociety.org/news/news-detail/index.aspx?nid=7157

About Multiple Sclerosis
Multiple sclerosis, an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system, interrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body. Symptoms range from numbness and tingling to blindness and paralysis. The progress, severity and specific symptoms of MS in any one person cannot yet be predicted, but advances in research and treatment are moving us closer to a world free of MS. Mos
