How Your Fundraising Helps

In 2016, your fundraising helped make a significant impact towards stopping MS, restoring function that has been lost and ending MS forever. Below are some of the highlights from each area that you made possible:

  • Stopping MS: Ocrelizumab, which was shown to slow primary progressive MS and to reduce MS relapses in clinical trials, was granted “Breakthrough” status by the FDA and a decision about its possible approval is expected by the end of March 2017.   
  • Ending MS Forever: The International Consortium of MS Genetics has identified 200 genetic variations associated with MS, providing new leads to understanding how genes and other factors combine to make people susceptible to MS. These findings were made possible by the combined efforts of consortium members, who were able to analyze data from more than 100,000 people. The Society co-funded this work.
