Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a disease of the central nervous system that disrupts communication within the brain and spinal cord and with the rest of the body. In MS, the immune system attacks the substance called myelin that covers and insulates nerve fibres. MS causes damage to nerves and to the cells producing myelin and eventually can cause progressive deterioration leading to disability.
