In some cases, treatment can slow the pace of MS. Treatment can also help ease symptoms and reduce potential damage due to MS flare-ups (periods when you have symptoms). Infusions are one treatment option.

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an immune-mediated condition that affects your central nervous system. Experts aren’t exactly sure what causes it, but they know that the immune system is involved.

When you have MS, your immune system mistakenly attacks your nerves and destroys myelin, their protective coating.

If left untreated, MS can eventually destroy all the myelin surrounding your nerves. After that, it may start to harm the nerves themselves.

There’s no cure for MS, but there are several types of treatment.
