Treating Your MS provides an up-to-date explanation of the medications used to treat multiple sclerosis. Part 1 explains how environmental and genetic factors contribute to immune dysfunction and includes a chapter on the effects of pregnancy on MS. Part 2 provides separate chapters on all of the current MS therapies: interferons, Copaxone, Tysabri, Gilenya, Tecfidera, Aubagio and Lemtrada. The history and development of each drug is explained, and the author reviews the data from clinical trials to provide a detailed analysis of the effects and side effects of the medications. The final chapter provides a framework for individuals to make an informed decision for selecting the the best therapy for their MS.
