Advances made in 2012 MS research

Estriol and other studies hold promise

The Society invested more than $44 million this year in over 350 MS studies, including clinical trials that test whether the sex hormone estriol can reduce MS immune attacks. Lives were changed in 2012 with the introduction of a second oral MS therapy, and the results of recent studies in vitamin D, stress management and medical marijuana promise more options in the future for people living with MS.
