Abstract

The past decade has seen a surge of research interest in multiple sclerosis and an accelerated expansion of investigative efforts into multiple sclerosis therapeutics. Investigators have continued dissecting the complex immunological perturbations that may contribute to the disease and made major advances in understanding the genetics of multiple sclerosis. This article addresses current investigative issues and offers predictions about where the understanding and treatment of multiple sclerosis may stand at the end of the 21st century's second decade.
