Multiple sclerosis

Multiple sclerosis is a chronic disease affecting the central nervous system. The immune system reacts against the body’s myelin, a substance that covers the neurones and that transmits nerve impulses. This reaction causes  them to slow and be interrupted. MS is a degenerative disease and the second most common cause of neurological impairment in young people (20-40 years old). Neither the cause nor any cure have yet been discovered.
